Coconut Sugar

Coconut sugar is produced from the sap of the flower bud stem of the coconut palm, and is not a direct derivative of coconut.

Coconut sugar has caught the attention of the health conscious, due to its low fructose content and low glycemic index. It is not refined or chemically altered and contains no artificial ingredients or synthetic substances. It looks and tastes similar to brown sugar with a slight hint of caramel – delicious! Coconut sugar is used widely as a natural sweetener in baking and in cooking, and can substitute any other sugars.

Benefits

The glycemic index (GI) is a measurement evaluating carbohydrate-containing foods and their impact on our blood sugar and glucose levels. Coconut sugar ranks just 35 on the index as opposed to regular table sugar which ranks between 60 to 65.

Regular white sugar does not contain any nutrients, whereas coconut sugar is high in antioxidants, iron, calcium and potassium. In fact, it has about 400 times more potassium than white sugar has.

Coconut sugar is pure and straight from nature, and completely avoids the extensive refining process which regular sugar undergoes.

Fructose is a variant of sugar which is quickly converted into fats by our body. Fructose is not easily broken down and only the liver is capable of breaking it down. This complex breakdown leads to the formation of triglycerides, a form of fat). Coconut sugar contains 20-30% fructose whereas cane sugar contains 50% fructose.

Consumption of coconut sugar is believed to promote the growth of intestinal bifidobacteria. Bifidobacteria are known to help restore good bacteria in the gut and boost your immunity. Bifidobacteria are known to produce thiamine, riboflavin, vitamin B6, and vitamin K.
