Organic Gula Java Cocoa
Michael Phelps, the American swimming champion, did not take steroids or supplements whilst 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 than by drinking a sports drink that is based on sugars only.
Researchers at James Madison University found that the ‘creatinine kinase’ levels (a sign of muscle damage) in soccer players were significantly lower after drinking a low-fat chocolate drink (Organic Gula Java Cocoa). In comparison, when the players drank a high-carbohydrate sports drink, these creatinine kinase levels were much higher.
Additionally, the University of Indiana published research in 2006 stating that drinking low-fat chocolate milk (Gula Java Cocoa) helps cyclists recover faster after heavy exercise in comparison to a regular 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 difference lies in the compostion of Gulq Jqvq Cocoa (low-fat chocolate milk). The various substances found in Gula Java Cocoa is apparently optimal. It supplies both high levels of carbohydrates and low but sufficient levels of protein during athletic performances.

What is Gula Java?
Gula Java is the coconut blossom sugar from Java. The sweet nectar from the coconut blossom is a cherished resource, harvested by tappers high in the coconut trees. In a kettle above a log fire, the nectar slowly transforms into a delicious, unrefined rich sugar. Enjoyable at every moment of the day with a soft and sweet caramel flavour.
Gula Java can be used as a substitute for cane or beet sugar, agave or maple syrup. 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 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 Agriculture Organization (FAO).
The health benefits of Gula Java
✔ Gula Java is unrefined natural sugar. As opposed to white sugar, which is refined beet root sugar, Gula Java is not stripped of its nutritious values. It is a great source of minerals, including chromium and inositol.
✔ Gula Java has a low glycaemic index (GI) of 35. The degree to which carbohydrates (sugars) in food increase your blood sugar level is expressed as a GI value. Low GI food (less than 50) keeps your blood sugar levels in balance, but high GI food (over 70) causes dramatic upward and downward fluctuations.
✔ Gula Java slowly gives off its energy - no sugar highs. Because of its low glycaemic index, Gula Java gives you long-lasting energy. It slowly gives off its energy, preventing ups and downs in blood sugar levels. No sugar rushes and no mood swings.
