So are you wondering what all the hype’s about? Coconut Palm Sugar is a nutrient rich, low glycemic index sweetener with a delicious maple-y flavor. If you’re not a fan of coconut, it doesn’t taste like coconut at all! In fact, its a great 1:1 replacement in any recipe calling for white sugar. Its unrefined and full of nutrients. The best part? It doesn’t make your blood sugar crash like regular sugar. Now that’s sweet! Give it a try. You can find it at most natural food stores and some grocery stores.
