Product Description

Switching from regular sugar to coconut palm sugar could prevent the blood sugar crashes that make you hungry and then cause you to gain weight. See why coconut palm sugar could be the best sugar alternative.(1)

This sugar is derived from the coconut palm tree and is touted as being more nutritious and lower on the glycemic index than sugar. Coconut sugar is also called Coconut Palm Sugar.

It is a natural sugar made from sap, which is the sugary circulating fluid of the coconut plant. It is often confused with Palm Sugar, which is similar but made from a different type of palm tree.

Coconut sugar is made in a natural 2-step process. A cut is made on the flower of the coconut palm and the liquid sap is collected. The sap is placed under heat until most of the water has evaporated.

Regular table sugar and high fructose corn syrup don’t contain any vital nutrients and therefore supply “empty” calories.

However, coconut sugar does retain quite a bit of the nutrients found in the coconut palm. There isn’t a lot of data on this, but coconut sugar contains several nutrients:

The minerals Iron, Zinc, Calcium and Potassium, along with some short chain fatty acids, polyphenols and antioxidants that may also provide some health benefits.

Then it contains a fiber called Inulin, which may slow glucose absorption and explain why coconut sugar has a lower glycemic index than regular table sugar.(2)

At 35, Palm sugar is naturally low on the glycemic index. This makes it one of the best natural sweeteners for health reasons, and makes it a healthy cane sugar substitute, brown sugar substitute, or even a replacement for agave nectar. It won’t give one a sugar rush, making it great for kids and those sensitive to sugar. By comparison, the glycemic index of agave nectar averages at 42, honey at 55, and cane sugar at 68.

Palm sugar is low glycemic because of its rich mineral content. Compared to other sweeteners, its ratio of minerals to carbohydrates is above and beyond.

It's somewhat butterscotch in flavor. The flavor dramatically changes to something of a mild caramel. More sophisticated than brown sugar, and better dressed than refined whites. It is a wonderful alternative to sugar, because it is very versatile in the kitchen. It cooks well. Bake it, grill it, or mix it into coffee and teas. It dissolves well in warm water and is a great way to sweeten up sauces. Coconut Sugar can be used as an ingredient in desserts, drinks and in place of cane sugar. It's wonderful sprinkled over oatmeal and in smoothies.

Our coconut sugar is unbleached, unfiltered and free of preservatives.
