Coconut sugar

Coconut sugar is a relatively new sweetener to hit the market. It’s a natural sugar made from the sap of flower buds of the coconut. Also known as palm sugar, coconut sugar comes in crystal or granular form and is delicately sweet, sort of like brown sugar. Low on the glycemic index, it has high mineral content and is low in carbs and fructose. A sucrose-based sweetener, pure coconut sugar has ten calories in a teaspoon, almost identical to any other sugar.
