  • Coconut sugar is also called coconut palm sugar. It’s a natural sugar made from coconut palm sap, which is the sugary circulating fluid of the coconut plant. It is often confused with palm sugar, which is similar but made from a different type of palm tree. Coconut sugar is the dehydrated sap of the coconut palm.
  • 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.
  • Coconut sugar contains small amounts of minerals, antioxidants and fiber. However, its high sugar content outweighs any potential benefits.
  • The glycemic index (GI) is a measure of how quickly foods raise blood sugar levels. Glucose is given a GI of 100. For comparison, foods with a GI of 50 raise blood sugar levels half as much as pure glucose. Table sugar has a GI of around 60, whereas coconut sugar has been measured with a GI of 54. However, it is important to note that GI can vary greatly between individuals and may also differ between batches of coconut sugar.
  • Coconut sugar is high in fructose. Evidence suggests that a high intake of fructose may promote metabolic syndrome in obese people.
