Product Details

While coconut sugar has been touted as being a health food, one might argue that coconut sugar is the same as regular table sugar, but the truth is it is not; coconut sugar can be considered superior to table sugar because of 3 main factors: Because coconut sugar comes directly from dehydrating coconut sap, it is pure and unrefined Albeit in small amounts, coconut sugar contains more nutrients, healthy fats and fiber than table sugar; and Coconut sugar is made up of only 75% sucrose compared to 100% found in table sugar Coconut sugar, also known as coconut palm sugar, contains more trace nutrients than regular table sugar. Most notable are the content of zinc, iron, potassium and calcium along with the polyphenols, antioxidants and short-chain fatty acids from the coconut plant. One of the best kept secrets about coconut sugar is that it contains the prebiotic fiber called inulin; this helps to reduce the blood sugar spiking effect of the sugar, lowering its glycaemic index when compared to table sugar. Coconut sugar may have a GI as low as 35, while table sugar has a GI of upwards of 65. When compared to the GI of the sugar found in most fruits, which is 25, coconut sugar is far more blood sugar friendly than table sugar.
