Thnot is the Cambodian word for Borassus Flabellifer, also known as Toddy Palm.
Thnot sugar is made from the nectar of Thnot flowers. It has a delicate aroma and distinctive sweet flavor with caramel undertones. Thnot grows wild in Cambodia, dotting rice fields and towering proudly next to Angkor Wat, the world-renowned Khmer ancient temple.
More than just sugar, Thnot is a symbol of perseverance and pride in Cambodian culture. The saying goes, តក់តក់ពេញបំពង់ Learn to be patient; drops of Thnot nectar will fill your bamboo canteen.
What you will taste in Thnot sugar is pure Thnot nectar, that has been carefully collected in bamboo canteens, and patiently churned over low heat for the high-quality end product that Cambodians crave and take great pride in.
