Coconut sugar is being touted as a healthier alternative to refined white sugar. Why? Because it has a comparatively low-GI, fewer carbohydrates, more minerals, and a taste that has made fans of many foodies.

What is coconut sugar?

Coconut sugar is the crystallised nectar of the coconut palm tree blossom, made by boiling the flower’s sap until it thickens and solidifies. It is mainly composed of sucrose (around 70%) followed by glucose and fructose. It has been used as a natural sweetener in South-East Asia for centuries, particularly in the Philippines and Indonesia, and is also known as coco sugar, coconut palm sugar or coco sap sugar.

The flavour and colour of coconut sugar can vary depending on the species used to make it and when it was harvested, but generally speaking it has a taste similar to brown sugar with hints of caramel.
