COCONUT SUGAR

 

Coconut sugar is derived from the fruit of the coconut tree. Though it should still be consumed in moderation, it is a less refined sweetener than many others with a comparatively low GI (Glycaemic Index) rating of 35. By means of comparison, frequently used cane sugar has a GI of 68 and honey a GI of 50.

Thanks to its relatively simple collection and production, coconut sugar retains a considerable quantity of the nutrients found in the coconut sap.

 

These nutrients include:

Potassium

Calcium

Magnesium
