People 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!
