Coconut sugar has a rich toffee-like flavour, is organic, minimally processed and unfiltered. It holds the reputation for being the most sustainable sweetener in the world. Usable as a 1:1 replacement for brown sugar in recipes, it's also suitable for baking and replacing traditional sweeteners in tea and coffee.
Coconut Sugar is low on the Glycemic Index (GI) with a rating of 35, which makes it beneficial for weight control and improving glucose levels in people with diabetes. Low GI foods allow for a slow release of energy, efficiently fuelling day-to-day activities without the highs and lows associated with most commercial sugars.
Due to its rich mineral profile, Coconut Sugar has numerous health benefits (but like all concentrated foods, should be enjoyed in moderation).
* People with an intolerance for Fructose have found Coconut Sugar beneficial since it is primarily Sucrose based (up to 89% depending on the crop). However, it's important to note it isn't entirely Fructose free and can contain between 3 to 5%. Also, sucrose itself is a disaccharide made up of a combination of Glucose and Fructose so the exact amount of Fructose may vary accordingly.
