About Coconut Sugar Organic

Despite its name, coconut sugar doesn’t actually come from coconuts. Instead, is made from the nectar produced by coconut blossoms, which is then boiled and ground to create a granular substance with a texture similar to brown sugar. It is primarily produced in Southeast Asia.

It is widely touted as being more nutritious and lower on the glycemic index than sugar (regular table sugar has a glycemic index-GI of 65, while coconut sugar has a GI of 35. This is much closer to the GI of the sugar that’s naturally found in fruits, which is around 25) and therefore a healthy sugar alternative. It does retain quite a bit of the nutrients found in the coconut palm. Most notable of these are the minerals iron, zinc, calcium and potassium, along with some short-chain fatty acids like polyphenols and antioxidants.

Another factor that gives coconut sugar an edge over the other sweeteners is that it is not refined or chemically altered and contains no artificial ingredients or synthetic substances.

Coconut sugar, when properly stored, will remain safe to consume indefinitely.

How to use

Using coconut sugar is quite similar to cooking and baking with brown sugar. It has a light but distinctive flavor, close to brown sugar or molasses. Coconut sugar has a darker almost earthy flavor, it’s wonderful in baking recipes using chocolate or warm spices. It’s also brilliant stirred into coffee or tea, sprinkled on top of pancakes or waffles, or used to brighten up savory recipes like curries, chicken or fish.

To replace white sugar with coconut sugar in your recipe, the ratio is usually 1:1.
