Coconut Sugar is a great tasting cane sugar alternative produced from coconut palm blossoms. With a rich toffee-like flavour, it's certified organic, minimally processed and has not been filtered.
Compared to cane sugar, coconut trees produce 50-75% more sugar per acre but use less than one fifth of the soil nutrients and water, making Coconut Sugar an extremely sustainable product.
Coconut Sugar is naturally low on the Glycemic Index (GI), with a rating of 35. In comparison, most commercial Honeys are GI 55 and Cane Sugars are GI 68. Low GI ratings allow for a slow release of energy, efficiently fuelling your day-to-day activities and avoiding the “highs” and “lows” associated with most commercial sugars.
Many people with a sensitivity for Fructose have found Coconut Sugar to be beneficial since it is primarily Sucrose based (up to 89% depending on the crop). However, it is important to note that it isn't entirely Fructose free and can contain between 3 to 5%.
Another point to consider is that Sucrose itself is a disaccharide made up of a combination of Glucose and Fructose so the exact amount of Fructose may vary accordingly.
Due to its rich mineral profile, Coconut Sugar has numerous health benefits but like all concentrated foods, it should be enjoyed in moderation.
