Organic coconut palm sugar is a nutrient-rich, low-glycemic crystalline sweetener that looks, tastes, dissolves and melts almost exactly like sugar, but it's completely natural and unrefined. It's acquired from the flowers growing high on coconut trees, which are opened to collect their liquid flower nectar. This nectar is then air-dried to form a crystalline sugar that's naturally brown in color and naturally rich in a number of key vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients, including potassium, zinc, iron, and vitamins B1, B2, B3 and B6.

Possible health benefits...

  • Low GI
  • High nutrient and unrefined
  • 1 to 1 replacement for cane sugar
  • 6,000 Years of History
  • Dr Oz calls it the best cane sugar alternative!

Why you might want to add coconut sugar to your diet...

Organic coconut palm sugar is a sustainable, non-GMO, low-glycemic alternative to other common sweeteners. Used for thousands of years throughout South East Asia, coconut palm sweeteners are a traditional sweetener and ingredient in a variety of foods. With a moist, crumbly texture this sweetener has a unique, exceptional caramel flavor.

Organic coconut palm sugar is never refined or bleached like white sugar. So the nutrients it was made with are still there. That's rare for sweeteners, most of which are highly refined. Even stevia is highly refined in its white powder form (real stevia is a green herb).

Coconut palm sugar may help maintain proper levels of blood glucose, or sugar, while providing an abundance of nutrients and minerals to keep you healthy. High glucose levels have been associated with an increased risk of diabetes mellitus — and even cancer, according to the Linus Pauling Institute. Coconut palm sugar scores a mere 35 out of a possible score of 70 or more, on the glycemic index scale, which measures how fast a carbohydrate turns into a sugar, according to Glycemic Index.

This nutrient-filled sugar is thought to benefit your health in several ways. Since low-GI foods are slowly digested, they provide a gradual and sustained rise in blood sugar. This keeps you feeling full and satisfied and delays the return of hunger between meals. Conversely, high-GI carbohydrates provide short bursts of energy that satisfy you in the short term but soon leave you hungry. Many of the fat-free and low-fat foods that have become popular over the last decade-such as bagels, processed cereals, rice cakes, crackers, snack chips, and cookies-tend to rank high on the glycemic index and may actually contribute to a pattern of overeating in some people.
