Coconut Palm Sugar comes from the sap of a coconut tree, and it tastes a lot like brown sugar. It is regarded as a good choice for diabetics because it has a lower glycemic index (GI) when compared to sugar alternatives. The GI measures how a food raises your blood sugar when compared to a typical glucose food such as white bread. Although it is okay for people with blood sugar issues to use Coconut Palm Sugar, it should be treated the same as typical sugar since it provides the same number of carbohydrates and calories. Per teaspoon, it has 4 grams of carbs and 15 calories. Another important consideration is that food manufacturers will often combine Coconut Palm Sugar with detrimental ingredients such as cane sugar which can be very harmful to your body.
