Sri Lanka’s multifarious coconut palm tree brings yet another healthy delight in the form of Goodfolks organic coconut sugar. Made from the dehydrated sap of coconut syrup, this product tastes and feels a lot like brown sugar with a touch of caramel and is wonderful as a natural sweetener or to be used in baking, cuisine or to drizzle on top of desserts.
Coconut sugar also has a low calorie content when compared with cane sugars and passes through the body instead of getting stored.
Sri Lanka has a variety (19 different types) of coconut palm trees, although you may not be able to point out any unique differences with a casual glance. The coconut tree is pretty much used in its entirety and the sheer number of products made from coconut palm trees is mind boggling. And it is a highly sustainable plantation crop.
Coconut sugar is known to score around 35 on the Glycemic Index when compared to refined regular sugars that score in the range of 60 - 70. High GI foods can cause your blood sugar to spike suddenly and this affects your insulin levels. Thus it is safe to say that coconut sugar is a healthier alternative if blood sugar levels are of concern to you.
