Notwithstanding a slew of protests right around the world, we increasingly see Genetically Modified foods (or GM foods) making their way to market shelves. Think fruits and vegetables such as papayas, corn products, soy products and even milk derivatives such as cheese, various attempts are being made to produce these items in genetically modified ways.
In this regard, sugar too has been no exception, with glyphosate-resistant sugar beet being one form of genetically modified sugar that particularly came to the fore in markets like the United States.
It is in this regard that we at PT Coco Sugar Indonesia take immense pride in our coconut sugar being 100% Non-GMO. Right from the start, when we first commenced operations, we were very clear that we would have absolutely nothing to do with any form of genetic modification. After all, natural foods are meant to be consumed “as is” whereby the nutritional value is maximum.
As it is, if you look at the nutrition value of coconut sugar, you will find that it is packed with nutrients including essential minerals such as iron, potassium, magnesium and zinc along with a variety of different amino acids and vitamins like B1, B2, B3, and B6. Therefore, there is really no reason to genetically modify coconut sugar anyway, when even in its 100% natural form, it offers such a wide variety of benefits.
On top of that, it is our own unique and resolute stance against genetic modification in foods which makes us so against it. After all, we look at it as nothing other than playing with nature, that too in ways which are largely completely unnecessary. In our view, a lot of the corporations indulging in such activities are doing so for personal gains and pure profiteering, rather than holding any real interest of the community at large, which they might feel is at stake if they did not genetically modify foods.
Therefore, anytime you are dealing with PT Coco Sugar Indonesia, you can be assured of the 100% Non-GMO nature of our products. As we have always asserted, our products are created in completely natural ways, without any artificial additives or adulteration of any kind whatsoever. Therefore when you purchase coconut sugar or any of its related items such as coconut nectar or an entire coconut sugar block from us, you can be assured of the natural nature of the product in question – there has absolutely been no playing around with nature of any kind in the creation process.
Accordingly, when you are looking for suitable sweeteners for yourself or your loved ones – which are 100% natural and organic, you can safely purchase from PT Coco Sugar Indonesia sans any concerns. We have always believed in Non-GMO and will do so as long as we are around. In our view, there is really no justification for playing around with nature, which is why when it comes to genetic modification of foods – as we witness ever so often these days, is a complete no-no for us.
