Coconut sugar (also known as coco sugar, coconut palm sugar, coco sap sugar or coconut blossom sugar) is a palm sugar produced from the sap of the flower bud stem of the coconut palm.
Coconut sugar is a natural sugar derived from the unopened flower bud of the coconut tree. It is not highly processed with no additives, bleaching agents, or any chemicals needed to make it. In fact, the only processing that takes place is heating the coconut sap to evaporate its water content. It is considered healthier and more nutritious than other natural and artificial sugar substitutes due to its low Glycaemic Index (GI), vitamins, minerals and amino acids.
