BUTUAN CITY, Philippines – A development group in Mindanao has recommended to farmers, especially sugar planters, to take advantage of the nipa tree to boost their sugar production, which is also expected to propel the growing economy in the Caraga Region.
Based on a study, the group said nipa trees belong to the same family as that of the coconut tree, but the sugar produced from it has low glycemic index, and according to international standards, if the glycemic index is within 50 or below 50, the product is good for the body.

but what you can do for your country."
