Coconut Sugar has a high mineral content. It is a rich source of potassium, magnesium, zinc and iron. In addition to this it contains Vitamin B1, B2, B3 and B6. When compared to brown sugar, Coconut Sugar has twice the iron, four times the magnesium and over 10 times the amount of zinc!
Coconut blossom sugar has calories like any carbohydrate, but due to its relatively low glycemic index (reportedly around 35), it is absorbed into the bloodstream at a much slower rate than refined sugar.
How is Coconut Sugar produced?
Farmers climb the coconut palms and collect the sugar blossom nectar by gently slicing the flower. Once harvested the nectar is transferred into kettles and boiled. The kettle-boiling process lowers the moisture content of the nectar, which enables solidification. Once cooled, the crystallized brick is then granulated.
Once you’ve tasted it, all other sweeteners seem, well, bitter.

Love it - a positive addition to my diet

I love the smell and taste of this sugar. It smells and tastes kind of like caramel to me.
I cannot have sugar for health reasons (it makes my eczema flare up horribly), but this sugar, and raw honey, seem to be just fine with my body :-) I use it mostly in baking with almond flour etc, but also use it in my coffee substitutes and occasionally in tea. I find it very sweet, but maybe that is becuase I cannot have, and have not had, normal sugar for a long time.
Waste of money

I read the reviews and all the reviews loved this sugar so I thought I would give it a try. Dont know if there is something wrong with the sugar that I got as it smells like burnt cookies and is not sweet at all, I only use one fourth of a teaspoon brown sugar and with this I have to use two teaspoons to get equal sweetness and then it has a horrible taste!

Perfect with Coffee

Honestly expected it to be sweeter, but it works well as gram for gram replacement to regular sugar. Gives a mature, smooth taste to coffee that is very enjoyable.

I love my new sugar!!! Just wish you could get it in 2.5kg bags to last longer. Thanks to all the other reviews on this product otherwise I mightve bought something not bad to replace white sugar.
Yummy caramel taste!

This sugar tastes delicious. I have used it in baking and it gives the baked goods and added dimension a yummy caramel flavour. When my kids saw me using it they were skeptical, as in large quantities it does change the colour of the batter/dough/milk. However they absolutely loved the pudding I made using this.

I love the taste of this sugar, its sweet without the guilt. Lovely added to coffee and tea, delicious in baking and sprinkled over cooked oats.

Tastes great, and you can feel the energy boost almost instantly with no crash on the other end. My blood sugar is always stable when I use this. I really love the slightly caramel taste as well.

Forget the sugar!

This product is amazing. It is one of the best alternatives to sugar products out in the market. Works well in tea and even better in coffee. It has a rich dark toasted sugar taste. It is just amazing!!

Gives tea and coffee such a lovely flavor. When I have ordinary sugar, I can taste the difference. Im spoiled with this one now.
Its good . . . .

I love the variety of different natural sweeteners around these days... with coconut sugar being a firm favourite. Delicious on oats and great for a fancier cup of tea.

I really like adding a teaspoon of this to my rooibos tea, it gives it such a nice flavour. I wouldn use this as a sugar substitute though, because I don find it very sweet at all.

I use this coconut sugar when I want a little sweetness in my tea or coffee. It has a mild caramel flavour and is excellent for baking too.
Really Yummy! Love it to bits and healthier than regular cane sugar.

Really Yummy! Love it to bits and healthier than regular cane sugar. My coffee is much more tasty with this :)
Am very impressed.
Am very impressed. Will stick to coconut sugar in the future. My toddler also loves it - I sprinkle it on his oats in the morning. Goodbye sugar! Yay!
This is gorgeous.
This is gorgeous. I rarely use sugar, so this feels so healthy when I do feel like sweetness!!
