Ingredients: Pure Organic Coconut Sugar
Regular table sugar and high fructose corn syrup don’t contain any vital nutrients and therefore supply “empty” calories.However, coconut sugar 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, polyphenols and antioxidants that may also provide some health benefits.
The glycemic index (GI) is a measure of how quickly foods raise blood sugar levels. Coconut Sugar is given a GI of 35, which puts it in the low range. This is much lower than table sugar, which is somewhere around 60.
