Coconut Palm Sugar v. White Sugar

Coconut sugar or coconut palm sugar is a natural sugar derived from coconut palm sap, the sugary liquid of the coconut plant. This sugar is not to be confused with palm sugar, similar to coconut sugar but made from a different tree. Coconut sugar retains quite a bit of the coconut palm nutrients so it is not classified as “empty” calories like white sugar. Coconut sugar contains a fiber called inulin, which is rumored to slow glucose absorption. This explains why coconut sugar has a lower glycemic index than white sugar. The most significant nutrients in coconut sugar are iron, zinc, calcium and potassium, as well as, some fatty acids. All added sugars should be used in moderation but coconut sugar has a slightly better nutritional profile.
