No more consuming of Palm Sugar Coffee(Karupatti Coffee)
Mostly southern District of Tamil Nadu consume more Palm Sugar because they have more Palm trees and Palm dwellers.
In Most of the houses, Palm sugar cup was an cottage industry for their daily needs.
Palm sugar was originally made from the sugary sap of the Palmyra palm , the date palm or sugar date palm (Phoenix sylvestris). Now it is also made from the sap of the sago, arenga pinnata and coconut palms, and may be sold as "arenga sugar" or "coconut sugar"
There has been a rapid increase in popularity with progressive manufactures in the United States who make products for the health conscious consumer. Because diabetes is becoming a global epidemic, consumers are becoming very aware of their sugar intake, in what form their sugar comes in and where it comes from. Coconut palm sugar, because of its low glycemic qualities and high nutrient profile, is gaining in popularity for a wide array of uses to cater to the sugar conscious consumer.
Companies are using coconut palm sugar in cookies, baked goods, protein powders, energy bar, beverages or anywhere cane sugar is used.
Palm sugar is often used to sweeten savory food to balance out the salty flavor of fish. Its primary use in Thai cuisine is in sweets and desserts, and somewhat less often in curries and sauces.
