Palm sugar (Panam karkandu in Tamil) is made from the sap of palm trees. Palm sugar is produced by tapping the sap from the inflorescence (group of flowers arranged on the stem) of the tree and boiling it down to produce syrup, which is then allowed to crystallize into various shapes and sizes. Palm sugar is a nutrient-rich, low-glycaemic crystalline sweetener that looks tastes, dissolves and melts almost exactly like sugar, but it's completely natural and unrefined. The crystalline sugar that's naturally brown in color and naturally rich in a number of key vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients, including potassium, zinc, iron, and vitamins B1, B2, B3 and B6. It is never refined or bleached like white sugar. So the nutrients it was made with are still there. That's rare for sweeteners, most of which are highly refined.
