A 250g serving of Coconut Connection Organic Coconut Sugar
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.
16 out of 18 people would recommend this product20/10/2017, By RUTHSprinkled on peeled apple slices, in my raw oats for breakfast, delicious in home-made custard - mmmm06/10/2017, By SandraNo sweetener like it, tastes a bit like caramel, with all the goodness of coconut!03/10/2017, By NewgirlharperIt is just okay. Very expensive to include in the family food budget. Oh well back to the much cheaper brown sugar that normally takes up the shelf space in the pantry cupboard.
03/10/2017, By Preshathe best sugar. use it in absolutely everything. delicious caramel tones to it and is much more affordable than agave which i used to previously use11/09/2017, By TaschIt's the only sugar I use03/09/2017, By Ru-RooFirst time trying this. Impressed with the quality for thprice.02/09/2017, By AbigailThis is one of the more similar refined sugar substitutes and works simlarly/ tastes sugary but it is still sugar, so not that healthy, margibally better than the GM processed stuff...08/08/2017, By NadiaDecided to give this a try. It has an interesting taste that takes some getting used to. Doubt I will replace brown sugar in recipes with this, but it does have a nice caramel aftertaste.25/07/2017, By AmandaNot sure it is that healthy, but definitely better than normal sugar. Also very expensive.20/07/2017, By JadeVery nice and tastey. Received it as a sample and had to buy more. Just a bit pricey for a small jar.19/07/2017, By ElijahReceived samples to try. Its not bad, but I wasn't wowed enough to rush out and buy more. Plus, I'm still not convinced on health benefits.19/07/2017, By JackieI like the taste but am disturbed to think it's not as healthy as it's made out to be.05/07/2017, By NiciHere is one of many articles on Coconut sugar and a quote from the article. It saddens me to think people are paying so much money for something that is not necessarily healthier. Just food for thought:
"At the end of the day, coconut sugar is no miracle food.
It is very similar to regular table sugar, although the manufacturing process is more natural and it also contains some minor amounts of nutrients to go with it.
If you’re going to use coconut sugar, then use it sparingly. It is slightly “less bad” than regular sugar, but definitely not something you should eat every day"14/06/2017, By yolandeThis is such a nice alternative to normal sugar... it gives a sweetness with a slight coconut flavour..which u cant really explain..just wanting more of it!!09/06/2017, By EstrellitaI am diabetic and use artificial sweeteners, but really hate the after-taste. The coconut sugar has no after-taste and is especially good over Cornflakes!24/05/2017, By SanCoconut sugar tastes nice, and comes without the harmful effects of regular refined sugar. It is however NOT high in any minerals, and that is a misleading claim that should be corrected for sake of truth.28/05/2016, By BiancaI didn know what to expect when I first bought this product. It has helped me greatly in terms of cutting out refined sugar! I can now enjoy my morning coffee without having a sugar crash 30min later. Would definitely recommend coconut sugar to anyone that struggles with sugar problems.17/02/2016, By HelenLike all coconut sugar, the caramel-y taste is lovely and goes well with tea and coffee.
