  • Coconut palm sugar is a sugar alternative from Southeast Asia made from the flowering buds of a coconut tree. It has minimal processing in it’s production.
  • It is not highly nutritious in vitamins and minerals, but rather it is just sucrose and does not have a low glycemic index. It does not help in weight control or prevent cancer.
  • It’s use is mainly just for it’s taste, which is a more caramel flavor, and is useful in cooking and baking. Consider coconut palm sugar to be empty calories otherwise. There is no proof of health benefits to using it.
