Coconut sugar comes from the sap of the coconut palm's flower bud stem and has a flavor and color that varies depending on the species used to create it and when it was collected, but its taste is comparable to brown sugar with undertones of caramel.
Coconut sugar is abundant in good fats, which are proven to help lower cholesterol and prevent heart disease. Inulin is a form of dietary fiber that aids with gut health, colon cancer prevention, and blood sugar regulation. Coconut sugar contains only around 75% sucrose, compared to 100% sucrose in table sugar.
Can be used in cakes, cookies, granola, parfaits, sauces, and any other recipe that calls for conventional sugar. Simply use a one-to-one ratio of coconut sugar to white or brown sugar when making a recipe.
◉ Should be stored in airtight glass containers -in a cool, dark, and dry area- to preserve its flavor.
