Palm Tree Sugar – 80g

$62 $47

The smell, or should we say the fragrance of this extraordinary sugar is sublime, you’ll never want to stop smelling it. It is fine, subtle, delicious, it doesn’t smell of sugar, but of sweets, pastries. It is powerfully addictive. Despite its sweetness, its notes are fresh, floral, with notes of chocolate ice cream, light caramel and a subtle roast note. The wild sugar palm tree grows naturally throughout Cambodia. It is also the national symbol of the Kingdom. This tree has nothing to do with the palm oil tree. Extracting the sugar from its flowers is a Cambodian ancestral tradition. This activity plays a very important role in the country’s economy.
The palm sugar, which is 100% natural is not refined and thus keeps all of its minerals and micronutrients. It is naturally balanced in sucrose and fructose and as it doesn’t contain glucose, this natural sugar doesn’t cause insulin secretion, so it is the ideal sugar for diabetics because it has a very low glycemic index, less than 30.

Cooking tips : It is a great alternative to regular sugar in all your sweet dishes. It is perfect for superb caramels, it will work wonders in fruit salads, bring a subtle touch to your cocktails, cleverly fragrance yogurt or white cheeses, and we’re sure you’ll eat it on its own as well! In Asian cuisine, it is used in dishes to counterbalance the chilli.

Le Comptoir Des Poivres has worked on an even higher quality new product range.

For several months the company have been pooling their skills, and they have sought out products of unquestionable quality using the same philosophy – they look for products directly at their production locations, they refuse any chemical treatments both on the plant and the product and any irradiation (hypocritically called ionisation), they ensure that the people working in the plantations work in optimal conditions, they require many selection processes to keep only the most exceptional grains or berries, they refuse any long storage and transport the products without intermediaries, that is to say with maximum traceability.

olivier derenne - le comptoir des poivreOlivier Derenne, Founder

“Since my rural childhood, my life has been a perpetual search for authentic flavours, either while pottering round vegetable gardens, on walks through forests, local markets, at auctions, bakeries, grandmothers’ or mothers’ kitchens, in master cooks’ kitchens or even on trips across the world.
I’m someone who is eager to discover new sensations, scents, textures, flavours, not just to own them, but also to share them.
I like to tell stories about the wonders that surround us and the passion of men and women who give the best of themselves to bring you something exceptional.
My objective: to source the best, the most exclusive, the most authentic and most surprising and then narrate, share, transmit and astonish…”
