Low glycemic index
The glycemic index (GI) is a measurement evaluating carbohydrate-containing foods and their impact on our blood sugar and glucose levels. Coconut sugar ranks just 35 on the index as opposed to the regular table sugar which ranks between 60 to 65.
Relatively high on nutrients
Your regular white sugar does not contain any nutrients. Coconut sugar, on the other hand, is high on antioxidants, iron, calcium and potassium. Infact, it has about 400 times more potassium than white sugar.
Away from the extensive refining process, which regular sugar has to undergo, coconut sugar is pure and straight out of nature.
Fructose is a variant of sugar which is quickly converted into fats by our body.
Coconut sugar contains 70 to 75 percent of sucrose and about 20 to 30 percent of fructose as opposed to white sugar which is high in both fructose and glucose.
Good for the gut
The star fibre of coconut sugar – insulin has the ability to promote the growth of intestinal bifidobacteria. Bifidobacteria are known to produce thiamine, riboflavin, vitamin B6, and vitamin K.
