Coconut Sugar as an Alternative to Sugar

813People with diabetes or people who want better control of their blood sugar levels should consider coconut sugar. Made from the sap of the coconut palm, coconut sugar has a low glycemic index. In addition to preventing blood sugar spikes, coconut sugar is also a great source of potassium.*

While it may have the same caloric content, coconut sugar offers a lower glycemic index than regular sugar; try swapping it out the next time you bake. And don’t worry if you do not enjoy the flavor of coconut, coconut sugar actually tastes a lot more like brown sugar. Yum!
