Organic Coconut Sugar

Coconut sugar is also called Coconut Palm Sugar. As the harmful effects of sugar and high fructose corn syrup become increasingly more evident, people are turning to natural alternatives. This sugar is derived from the coconut palm tree and is touted as being more nutritious and lower on the glycemic index than sugar. A sweetener that has become very popular in the past few years is coconut 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 into containers.

  • The sap is placed under heat until most of the water has evaporated.

It Is Good To Our Health

Organic and healthier than table sugar, it is cooked from the sap of the flower buds of the coconut palm tree. It has a brown tint similar to demerara (brown sugar), and is richer in minerals like zinc, potassium and magnesium than other sweeteners like maple syrup and honey. While the table sugar you usually consume is made up of 100% sucrose, coconut sugar is onlyabout 75% sucrose. Researchers found that coconut sugar has a low glycaemic index of 35 and hence, reacts slower than regular white sugar.
