COCONUT PALM TREE SUGAR , NUTRITIOUS SWEETENER OF LOW GLYCEMIC INDEX FOR DIABETES AND OBESITY -- CAPT AJIT VADAKAYIL



NEERA,  NON ALCOHOLIC  COCONUT TREE  UNFERMENTED TODDY   , THE DRINK OF THE GODS,  6000 YEAR OLD AYURVEDIC REGENERATOR  FOR LIVER , PANCREAS AND KIDNEY – CAPT AJIT VADAKAYIL


As a bachelor , while on leave I would love to have a drink of Smirnoff Vodka mixed with early morning neera frozen in the fridge ( unfermented non alcoholic coconut toddy ) .   

It is the best drink you can have ever in your life.



Before I proceed I must give a brief introduction about virgin coconut oil and tender coconut water.

All health studies on coconut oils have been done on hydrogenated oils DELIBERATELY , so that the immoral west can have a trade advantage with their own GM Canola, GM Sunflower and Olive oils.

Today in USA people on the verge of Alzheimers , drink coconut oil straight from table spoons.




In high heat of Indian cooking of >250 deg centigrade these fancy oils like  Olive , Corn, Safflower, Sunflower etc , gets unstable with free radicals abuzz from pulverized molecules and become carcinogeic.
"Virgin" coconut oil -- an organic and unrefined, undeodorized, unhardened coconut oil, with high levels of natural anti-oxidants , NIL trans fats.

Coconut oil and ghee  are a source of  short-chain fatty acids  which are easier to digest than long-chain acids.  Short-chain fatty acids actually help to strengthen and develop cell membranes while long-chain acids increase risks of blood clots and cancer.

Our bodies metabolize medium-chain and short-chain fats differently than long-chain ones, and medium- and short-chain ones are not associated with cardiovascular problems in the same way as the long-chain ones are.

The Caprylic Acid inherent in coconut oil destroys Candida yeast . This acid  basically "pokes holes" in the Candida yeast cell wall, causing it to die. 

Virgin Coconut oil helps prevent modern diseases like Crohns disease,  fatty liver disease , kidney diseases , Parkinsons , high BP and cholesterol , Alzheimer’s , obesity, fungi , viral diseases , diabetes , breast cancers , PMS syndrome etc.  


Below: The process of collecting coconut tree sap neera.



In Kerala we never has Alzheimers till the corrupt ministers started importing palm oils , sunflower oils, soya bean oils etc !

Today if you suspect the virgin coconut oil you buy in the supermarket,  just put the bottle horizontally in the freezer to solidify it , and then place it a warm place vertically to melt the oil with a thermometer inserted.  It the oil takes a high 38 deg centigrade of heat to UN freeze it means the oil is hydrogenated.

Unlike saturated fats from animal sources, coconut oil does not raise cholesterol levels in the body or contribute to cardiovascular disease. In fact, it does the opposite. It can effectively lower LDL cholesterol and has a protective effect on the arteries.  It does this because of the size of its molecule.

Coconut oil is a saturated fat, which can be safely heated to high temperatures. A saturated fat has no possibility to attract more hydrogen atoms and is therefore very stable.  Coconut oil, like mother's milk, is rich in lauric acid. Once inside our bodies, lauric acid gets converted to monolaurin, which has powerful anti-viral, anti-microbial and anti-fungal properties and does not harm our natural defenses, like medicines can.

Coconut oil really is a miracle food.


It stabilizes blood sugar levels, helps balance hormones, stimulates thyroid function leading to increased metabolism and fat burning, reduces stress on the liver and pancreas and boosts the cellular healing processs of the body by destroying dangerous microbes and enhancing tissue repair, hence its ability to aid the healing if skin wounds, cuts, burns and bruizes.  As it is so easy to metabolize, it effectively boosts our energy levels.

Tender coconut water is the most sterile and purest liquid on earth. It is the only liquid which can be used for intravenous plasma transfusions , as it is electrolytic. 

In the 2nd World war it saved so many soldiers from certain death, that it is called the water of life. 

People in Kerala India drank coconut water, to recover faster from Chikunguniya ( break bone fever, Dengue ). Otherwise the terrible joint pains , take too long to subside.

Let me list out the good effects of LIVING coconut water:--

Prevents hypertension.
Prevents fatty liver problems
Increases libido and sexual performance for both sexes.
Revitalised the reproductive system , for barren couples.
Anti-oxidant and chases away free radicals.
Flushes toxins away from the cells due to proper surface tension.
Urinary infections and bladder problem
Natural diuretic for flushing the urinary system, the water flows through fast
Prevents kidney stones and flushing ones already built up
Controls Cholesterol and hardening of arteries
Improves bowel movement and hence constipation
Helps faster recovery from Bacterial and Viral diseases, without side effects
Boosts blood circulation due to pH balance
Increases metabolism and weight loss
Boosts immune system
Isotonic beverage , more Potassium/ Sodium ,less Sodium and NIL fats
An excellent skin softener and anti wrinkle wash

Contains the following minerals:--

Calcium
Magnesium
Phosphorus
Iron
Potassium
Zinc
Sodium
Selenium
Copper
Manganese
   
Contains the following Vitamins:--   

Vitamin C
Riboflavin
Thiamine
Niacin
Vitamin B12
Vitamin B6
Folate
Pantothenic Acid
Choline


I guess some of my readers are now confused.

AAA- What is tender coconut water?

It is water inside a tender coconut!

See picture below . The best health and sports drink .



BBB- What is virgin coconut oil ?

The white meat inside the coconut is dried in the sun and oil is squeezed out of this dried copra.
Do NOT  buy hydrogenated coconut oil.  Oil is hydrogenated to increase its melting point from 24 deg C to about 38 deg C.

See picture below . The best and most healthy vegetable oil on the planet..


Below : Dried copra!



CCC- What is neera or coconut tree sap or non-alcoholic fresh toddy  ?

It is oyster white sap tapped from immature inflorescence of the coconut tree which oozes out ( see below ) 
.

Today I was surprised to see a coconut tree sugar cake in a super market nicely packed into 30 rupee packets  –  as I type this post I am eating it.  

You will NOT believe how sweet and tasty it is.

It reminded me of my childhood when we used to have it daily ( instead of sugar ) and our payasam would be made of it.  

This sweetener was always used for Ayurvedic medicines –we call in Malayalam as Chakkara.

This sugar has a very low glycemic index .  The glycemic index or glycemic index (GI) is a measure of how quickly blood glucose levels (i.e., blood sugar) rise after eating a particular type of food.   

Glucose (the defining standard) has a glycemic index of 100, while coconut sugar is less than 34.   This is almost like carrots on an index scale , but much much sweeter.

The GI of honey which diabetics and weight watchers use in vain hope is 56 – 60.  All artificial sweeteners l come with deadly side effects.


Due to coconut neera produced sugar has a low glycemic index, its calories are absorbed into the bloodstream at a significantly slower rate than regular refined sugar. This property should be of interest to anyone who is monitoring their blood sugar levels and attempting to avoid blood sugar spikes.

Coconut sugar has been used as a traditional sweetener for tens of thousands of years in Kerala. The soul less communists, the Muslim league and the Syrian Christian lobby of Kerala banned this sap . 

Today toddy is obtained in Kerala in very few places --  and the tree climbing toddy tappers are a dying breed .

So since people from Kerala are great drinkers what are they drinking ?

The brokers of INDIAN MADE FOREIGN LIQUOR put methanol in this great toddy drink and people died . 

It is as stupid as -- someone puts Methanol in water, so you ban water.

So our lobbied evil politicians promptly banned toddy— like how they imported unhealthy palm oil from Malaysia and killed,  healthy desi Coconut oil .  

So today IMFL ( useless malt whisky / sugar cane rum / grape brandy ) is what we get .  

What a disgrace !


Mula paal kazhinjetu kula paal” is a popular line in Kerala .  This translates to “ after mother’s milk comes coconut neera milk” .   

It was tradition in Kerala that small children after breast feeding period was over was first given pure nutritious un-fermented toddy,  before they were given external feed.

It is  documented that in isolated islands of central pacific during WW2 , when crops failed, for months people survived on this drink.  



As a steady diet, processed white sugar is worse than nothing.  Plain water can keep you alive for quite some time.  White sugar and water can kill you, as ship wrecked sailors have proved.   Humans and animals are unable to subsist on a diet of sugar.


In Bollywood movie DIRTY PICTURE Vidya Balan runs away to the city as a young girl to pursue her dreams of becoming an actress surviving for many days only on sugar and water enroute .  This is NOT possible.


Neera is gets fermented  at ambient temperature within a few hours of extraction at sunrise , from the coconut tree.  Once fermented, it transforms into toddy with 4% alcohol , unless it is refrigerated.


Amount of alcohol present in toddy is up to maximum 8% on the 3rd day of neera sap extraction. After which acetic fermentation process starts, which brings the alcohol content down.  

Fresh extracted neera sap will NIL alcohol.  If allowed to ferment beyond 3 days, it will yield a strong acidic vinegar which has a short shelf life.



Coconut sugar or Chakkara is good for women struggling hard to control their weight before marriage .  



In addition to being a healthy sugar for diabetes patients with burnt out pancreas , it also helps to lower serum cholesterol and risk of cardiovascular and coronary heart disease.

When I was a kid my neighbor had a sweet coconut tree  – called nadan ( local non hybrid ).  Rats used to eat the fallen small premature lemon size nuts or mechinga-  as it was  so sweet.   They gave  the tree for coconut tapping, and this neera was absolutely divine.

The sugar made from this neera had rounded sweet caramel and butterscotch notes, without the bad metallic after taste usual brown sugar has.



Toddy tapping does not kill or harm the tree, rather a famished tree rejuvenates after a session of toddy tapping.

The cut is made was on the stem of a flowering bud which normally would bear a large bunch of coconuts.


Processed white sugar is 99.96% sucrose . White sugar robs the body of B vitamins, disrupts calcium metabolism and has a deleterious effect on the nervous system.


Processed white sugar by itself contains NIL nutrients, proteins, healthy fats, enzymes—nothing.

It gives empty and quickly digested calories that actually pull minerals from the body during digestion. It creates a hormone cascade when consumed that starts a positive feedback loop in the body to encourage more consumption.


White refined sugar-is not a food at all.  

It is a pure chemical extracted from sugar cane.  


Its true name is sucrose and its chemical formula is C12 H22 O11.  It has 12 carbon atoms, 22 hydrogen atoms and 11 oxygen atoms.


Calcium, sodium, potassium and magnesium are taken from various parts of the body to make use of white sugar.  Refined sugar is void of all nutrients, consequently it causes the body to deplete its own stores of various vitamins, minerals and enzymes.

If sugar consumption is continued, an over-acid condition results, and more minerals are needed from deep in the body to correct the imbalance.


India is on the road to type 2 diabetes and nobody is warning the Indian public.  They are busy discussing Sachin Tendulkar.

Coconut tree sap sugar has a high mineral content, being a rich source of potassium, magnesium, zinc, and iron.  In addition to this it contains Vitamin B1, B2, B3, and B6.  

When compared to brown sugar, coconut sugar has 36 times the iron, four times the magnesium, and over 10 times the amount of zinc. The coconut sap, from which coconut sugar is derived, contains 16 amino acids. 

 Diabetics must know that coconut tree sap sugar is their savior . Its must be used as a sugar substitute .

Aspartame they use in sugar free zero calorie artificial sugar is bad for heath . You find main stream media singings its praises.  Many diabetic people have died and nobody warns about it. 


Never mind what that Sugar Free artificial sweeteners say—these artificial sweeteners trick your body into gaining weight and storing flab, the exact opposite of what you expect !  

Aspartame is comprised of methanol, phenylalanine and aspartic acid.  When aspartame breaks down it produces DKP. As your stomach digests DKP, it produces a chemical that induces the growth of brain tumors.  




Emotional and mood disorders have been linked to aspartame.  Aspartame increases your hunger and  impedes your weight loss.  Phenylalanine and aspartic acid can cause spikes in insulin levels and force your body to remove the glucose from your blood stream and store it as fat.  

Aspartame inhibits the production of serotonin and prevents your brain from signalling to your body that you are full.  This leads to food cravings and make it more difficult for you to lose weight.

Fresh neera is a sweet, oyster white and translucent fluid and is as pure as mothers’ milk . As per Ayurveda it has many medicinal properties and a is refreshing health drink.   

Neera is  rich in vitamins like Potassium , Beta-Carotene, Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Phosphorous and Sodium and  contains anti-oxidants which make this natural food such a great part of your diet.

Extracting neera ( non-alcoholic coconut tree sap ) takes many months of practice. The tapper climbs at the top of the tree and select a half matured bud,  cut its top , shapes its ridge ,and places a mud pitcher so that the oozing liquid is collected in the pitcher without losing even a drop.  

The shoot of the palm is sliced near its tip and the cut end is covered with this mud pot. He mildly taps the selected bud from bottom to top so that the sap flows smooth to the pitcher.

His next visit is to collect the oozed sap in to a jar attached to the belt, descent and take the product to the toddy contractor-- two visits a day one early morning and the other in the evening.


That collected in the evening would be ready to use by the morning (as it becomes adequately fermented within that time).  It is the fermentation that adds ‘kick’ to the brew.

It is normally an evening business and by the next morning, the pot will be full of white frothy toddy.  When the palm has reached the normal bearing stage, every leaf axis produces a spadix or inflorescence.

The flow of juice increases gradually and the pot should be changed twice daily, at the same time shaving a thin slice from the end of the spathe, tapping slightly with the mallete and smearing on a mixture of bruised taali leaves for stimulating the flow of toddy from the spathe .


These taali leaf paste when applied on the cut portion, keeps bacterial infection away and makes the bud ooze sap,  at the same time  not allowing it to go dry and heal.

By the time collection of the sap is over, fermentation sets-in immediately and the sap is converted into fresh toddy or sweet toddy. This product is a milky white and effervescent.

Each new bud can be used until it ceases to provide sap. A good bud usually last for maximum 2 months.
The neera can be refrigerated to keep it fresh and non-alcoholic , or fermentation will set in . 

If you do NOT have a fridge ,you can add a piece of white pumpkin or little edible lime ( choona ) /Calcium hydroxide to stop fermentation of toddy, so you can keep it fresh for a long run.

Below:  Since the coconut tree has to be climbed so  often , the trunk becomes too smooth  and becomes slippery -- so they tie up husk like step ladders-- watch a tourist climbing up a tree to sip pancreas re-vitalising QUANTUM ACTION NEERA straight from the mud pot on top.


Because of the ban on toddy 85% of the existing tappers have joined the booming construction industry—and then there is NO looking back.  It is IMPOSSIBLE to replace a human beings for toddy tapping.

Fresh neera is very light in color and should flow like water.  Neera is rich in carbohydrates, mostly sucrose, and has a nearly neutral pH.


Fermented toddy will have dark shade of off-white color and will be slightly viscous.

The Kerala Govt has not realized that more people die of cholesterol and foreign alcohol  . Neera has NIL cholesterol.

Within two hours, fermentation yields an aromatic wine of up to 4% alcohol content, mildly intoxicating and sweet.  Kallu is usually drunk soon after fermentation by the end of day, as it becomes more sour and acidic day by day.  Spices are added in order to brew the drink and give it its distinct amazing taste. 


The toddy may be allowed to ferment longer, up to a day, to yield a stronger, more sour and acidic taste, which some people prefer .  This can be distilled to create a stronger drink called ARRACK OR CHARAYAM. 

The pH of the fresh toddy varies from 6.2 to 7.2, but the pH gradually drops to 4.3-4.0 9 ( acidic) by continued fermentation.   pH of neutral fresh water is 7.

To make Chakkara or coconut tree sap sugar, the sap is boiled in enormous vats over low heat, to evaporate the moisture content ( 80% ) of the neera sap.. .
   
As the water evaporates, it starts to transform into a thick syrup-like substance..  From this form, it is further reduced to crystal, block or soft paste form, or it remains in this form.

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 .  Remarkably, even though coconut tree neera  sugar cooks, dissolves and melts just like regular sugar, it has a far superior taste.

The recovery of coconut sugar/ jaggery from syrup is 15%.  It is superior to sugar cane jaggery.



Neera contains thiamine, riboflavin, nicotinic acid, ascorbic acid , manganese ,copper, calcium, iron, zinc, potassium, lithium etc

The neera sap is subjected to filtration,  centrifuging, processing and packaging.  The processed product has a limited shelf life.  If it is stores in plastic it must be kept in a cool place and NOT kept in the hot sunlight.  This liquid is a thirst quencher.


The neera sap is best drunk fresh as soon as it oozes out of the cut spadix  into the coconut  tree top pot, for its quantum effect.  This is truly a drink of the gods . This can regenerate and revitalize your pancreas, liver and kidney. It is a health drink for diabetics.

The “Indian made foreign liquor” pushed by the lobbied up Kerala Ministers are NOT good for human health. 


There are western tourists who come to Kerala just to have a good Ayurvedic massage (Shirodhara)  , drink fresh sweet neera with fried fresh water fish Karimeen , have ultra delicious VELLAPPAM doused in sweet coconut milk, and watch elephants in the temples ..

When ever  come back home on leave after a tenure on the ship, the next morning my wife will make vellappam for breakfast.  This dish requires yeast in the form of fermented coconut toddy.


Toddy is mixed with rice dough and left over night to aid in fermentation and expansion of the dough causing the dough to rise overnight, making the bread soft when prepared.

Vellappam is a  round white lacy pancake with a crisp boundary with an airy, soft on touch, fluffy center. It is doused in sweetened coconut milk , or eaten with Kerala potato stew which uses coconut milk and pepper..




Today cocktail tattiquete – nay- etiquette requires that you know what “Angostura bitters” is.

If you don’t know the snooty crowd will wrinkle their noses at you. This is almost like a Communist NOT knowing the word Bourgeouis.

Let me tell you what it is.

In Malayalam Ayurveda call it SINJONA found in great abundance in the Western ghats . The British transplanted it in Ceylon .

It is a herb to prevent gas and farting . It was usual to put some of this herb along with some other carminative herbs/ spices for that flavor and feel good affect.  

When you put Ayurvedic herb bitters it prevents fermentation of neera due to bacteria and inherent yeasts.  

Bitters are also  cleansing, detoxifying,  germicidal,  parasiticidal,  stimulating, and tonifying.

This was patented by a German and he declared that he got this brainwave at Angostura – some god forsaken place in Venezuela.

Today in classy bars you will find a small bottle of Angostura bitters ( with a ridiculously oversized label )



Fermentation causes friendly bacteria and yeasts to convert carbohydrates and sugar, into an alcohol or an acid.  

C6H12O6 (glucose) → 2 C2H5OH (ethanol) + 2 CO2 (carbon dioxide)

Louis Pasteur got his fermentation insights from 6000 year old Ayurveda.   Lord Krishna as a young boy was fond of fresh yoghurt.  In our 7000 year old scriptures we have stories of bad drunkard kings who ruled badly.


You see the white invader liked to steal , patent and destroy the original source.
