Coconut Palm Sugar is a natural sugar made from coconut palm sap, which is the sugary circulating fluid of the coconut palm plant (date palm tree). This is not be confused with Coconut sugar, which comes from the buds of coconut tree flowers. Both are interchangeable in use, taste less sugary than table sugar and have a caramel-like undertone. The color is similar to that of brown raw sugar, but the particle size is typically smaller or more variable. Use coconut sugar in moderation, just as you would use regular table sugar.
- Coconut sugar causes a slightly lower rise in blood sugar, in some individuals, than regular table sugar. This is because 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
- retains some nutrients and minerals like small amounts of iron, zinc, calcium and potassium, along with some short-chain fatty acids like polyphenols and antioxidants
Ingredients: 100% Coconut Palm Sugar (Variety – Cocos Nucifera)
