Coconut sugar is quickly replacing agave nectar as the natural sweetener of choice. Many are finding this to be that healthy alternative they’ve been long searching for.
Over the last two years, we’ve witnessed a mass exodus away from agave nectar and a search for more natural sweeteners that are both low on the glycemic index and high in nutrient density. Several candidates have emerged, but my all-out favorite has become coconut sugar, which is really more like a coconut caramel sap.
What is Coconut Sugar?
This sweetener is fast becoming extremely popular among raw foodies, vegans and vegetarians. Many have switched from agave nectar to coconut sugar for all the reasons we’re covering here.
Not all coconut sugar is the same.
Good coconut sugar (sap) should be 100% pure organic crystallized coconut sap. It’s harvested from the sap of unopened coconut blossoms, then boiled under controlled heat to drive off the water and condense the liquid to a dark brown sap. There should be no additives used, no bleaching, and absolutely no stripping of minerals or other nutrients. It’s not a raw food, however. Cooking the sap is a necessary part of concentrating it, just like with maple syrup, which is really a concentration of the watery maple sap.
The result is a thick, liquid “caramel” sap that’s brown in color and extremely sweet.
It tastes almost like fudge, and some people even eat it like fudge. Cool intense yummy sweetness! Use it in smoothies, and it offers the most full-spectrum sweetness taste from any natural sweetener ever.
Agave nectar was great, but coconut sugar is so much better — it actually reminds you of the richness of raw cane sugar juice.
Works in Smoothies & Hot Beverages
This caramelized coconut sugar is also very handy in its sap format: It melts easily in hot beverages, it mixes easily in recipes, and it blends easily in smoothies. Amazingly, it’s only 12% sugar, and it’s high in potassium, magnesium, zinc and iron. It’s also high in several key B vitamins, so eating it is not just delicious; it’s also healthy! The theory is that the presence of certain trace minerals enhances the sweetness and richness of the flavor without needing high sugar content like you’ll find in refined sugar.

The claimed glycemic index (GI) of this food is 35 — which is extraordinarily low for a sweetener. Over the years, however, there’s been a fair amount of skepticism about the GI numbers that sweetener companies claim.
However, many customers have been using this regularly and have had no blood sugar issues at all – even those who used to be hypoglycemic and borderline diabetic, who are extremely sensitive to blood sugar fluctuations.
Try it yourself and you’ll be surprised at the minimal impact this has on blood sugar (which is probably due in part to the high trace mineral content it contains).
