Grown and Processed Naturally
Our Palmyra Blossom Nectar is made from the sap of the sacred South Indian Palmyra palm tree. These majestic trees tower over the landscape, take 15 years to grow and can remain productive for up to 125 years. There are around 5% of the number of Palmyra trees as Coconut palms–one reason they are so revered.
Our Palmyra palms are organically and sustainably wild-harvested. We never cut them down and we replant seedlings to replace the trees that die naturally.
Harvesting the nectar from the Palmyra palm is carried out by highly-skilled tappers. One is a spritely 87 years old who attributes his vitality to the delicious nectar he collects! During the Palmyra palm flowering season (March – September), our tappers climb 30 meters twice a day to reach the buds. The tapper makes a small incision, and the sap flows into his collection container.
After collection, we evaporate the moisture in low-temperature pans to retain the raw nutrient qualities. The sap caramelises, and we dry it into our Palmyra Blossom Nectar powder. We quality-test every batch, and our patented production system ensures the vitamins and minerals remain bioavailable, so you get the the Vitamin B-related health benefits and the best tasting sugar.
