Coconut sugar is a natural sugar derived from the flower stem of the coconut tree (cocos nucifera). It is not highly processed as no additives, bleaching agents, or any chemicals are needed to make it. In fact, the only processing that takes place is heating the coconut sap to evaporate its water content. It is considered to be healthier compared to other natural and artificial sugar substitutes. It has a low Glycemic Index and is more nutritious than typical granulated sugar - it even contains 1.3% protein. Although new to the western world, it has been used as a traditional sweetener for generations, particularly in South East Asian countries where the coconut tree grows in abundance.
It is not palm sugar. Some palm sugars are derived from Palmyra as well as other varieties of palm family. Coconut sugar specifically comes from the coconut tree (cocos nucifera). To put it another way, Coconut sugar is a palm sugar but NOT all palm sugars are Coconut sugar. This is a very important distinction as other palm sugars do not have the same health benefits or low Glycemic Index as Coconut sugar.
Note: It is culturally acceptable in South East Asia for some manufacturers to mix Coconut sugar with regular cane sugar and malt, and market it as "palm sugar"or "coconut palm sugar". If you would like to take advantage of Coconut sugar's health benefits, read the label and make sure that it is made from 100% pure coconut palm/coconut flower sap.
Coconut sugar's taste is reminiscent of brown sugar but with a slight hint of caramel. It can be used as a 1:1 sugar substitute. You can use it for your coffee, tea, baking and cooking! Coconut sugar is quickly gaining popularity as a viable sugar substitute with people who want to watch their calorie and sugar intake. Coconut sugar's low Glycemic Index provides you with long sustained energy, won't spike your blood sugar like regular sugar and keeps you feeling full for longer.
