Coco Sugar is healthiest of all

coco-sugarSugar is one of the primary reasons why obesity and diabetes exist. But, this condiment definitely makes our taste buds, and life itself, sweeter.

The sweet granules are present in everything we eat – including fruits and vegetables. It gives that delicious flavor to drinks and desserts.

But did you know that among the many kinds of sugar there are, coco sugar is the best of all?

From boiled and dehydrated sap of coconut palm, we can extract these healthy granules.

Coco sugar has become popular in the market, especially among health-conscious consumers. It is considered one of the best natural sweeteners.

As wonder sugar, it has the same taste as brown sugar, but considered healthier.

Its natural taste comes from pure watery sap that leaks from cut flower buds of healthy, grown coconut.

The nutrient composition of this sweet tropical alternative granule is said to have more vitamins, minerals, and some phytonutrients like flavonoids and antioxidants. It is also rich with amino acids which are vital for good metabolism.

One of the best things about Coco Sugar is its very low glycemic index of 35 compared to 60 and 75 of other sweeteners. This wonder sugar is surely better for people who are suffering from diabetes, obesity and cardio-vascular problems.

For cooking purposes, it has a very low melt temperature and an extremely high burn temperature so it can be used on baked products in place of sugar.

While it is okay for people with diabetes to use coconut palm sugar as sweetener, they should not treat it any differently than regular sugar, however. Coco sugar provides just as many calories and carbohydrates as regular sugar: about 15 calories and 4 grams of carbohydrate per teaspoon.
