Organic Gula Java Cocoa
Michael Phelps, the American swimming champion, did not take steroids or supplements while winning 8 medals at the Olympic Games; he drank chocolate milk. Various researchers confirm that recovery after heavy exercise is established faster by drinking a low-fat chocolate drink thany by drinking a sports drink that is based on sugars only.
Researchers at James Madison University found that serum creatinine kinase levels (a sign of muscle damage) in bodies of soccer players were significantly lower after drinking a low-fat chocolate drink (Organic Gula Java Cacao Coconut Sugar) than after drinking a high-carbohydrate sports drink. Additionally, in 2006, the University of Indiana published their research stating that drinking low-fat chocolate milk (Gula Java Cocoa) helps cyclists recover faster after heavy exercise in comparison to a sports drink. Moreover, the female cyclist testees were able to cycle for a 50% longer period than when having consumed a high-carbohydrate sports drink.

So what makes Gula Java Cocoa so different?
The composition of several substances found in Gula Java Cocoa (low-fat chocolate milk) is apparently optimal. It supplies both high levels of carbohydrates and low but sufficient levels of protein during sports performances. The University of Virginia (Harrisonburg) established that adding proteins to high-carbohydrate sports drinks, helps to extend a person’s maximum exercise ability by 29% and by as much as 40% during heavy exertion.
Gula Java Cocoa (organic coconut sugar) contains low-fat cocoa as well as high-mineral (electrolytes) coconut blossom sugar including a cinnamon and vanilla booster; it is rich in carbohydrates and contains sufficient proteins that are easily absorbed. Its GI of only 35 ensures a well-balanced release of energy and its high antioxidant value (ORAC of 2200) protects athletes from oxidation stress during and after exercise.
Make Gula Java Cocoa (organic coconut sugar) your healthy performance drink or your ideal energy drink… It is both tasty and easy to drink.

Perfect for in tea or coffee, delicious on oven-warmed apples, baked bananas, pancakes, pies, waffles, pastries, cakes and other baked goods. Also perfect for cocktails (e.g. Mojito, Caipirinha, etc.) If you fancy, it can be used as the decorative sugar rim for your cocktail glass.
Ideal to finish off dishes or to add to authenticity to Asian recipes. Can also be used as a snack for some extra energy.
It is recognised as the most sustainable form of sugar by the Food and Argiculture Organization (FAO).
The health benefits of Gula Java
