Size:4 Pound (Pack of 2) Tresomega Nutrition 100% organic Certified organic coconut sugar is made from organic coconuts and is an excellent alternative to traditional cane sugar and artificial sweeteners. It is made by boiling and dehydrating the sap of the coconut palm. Coconut sugar can be used in any recipe as traditional sugar would normally be used, and is a 1 to 1 replacement for us in cereals, baking, beverages and more. It has no chemical ingredients. Another important quality of Tresomega Nutrition organic coconut sugar is low in glycemic index, which measures the effects of carbohydrates on one's blood sugar. While traditional white cane sugar scores between 60 to 75 on the glycemic index. Organic coconut sugar is an excellent substitute, measuring at 35. Additionally, Tresomega Nutrition organic coconut sugar contains vitamins and minerals and because it is unrefined, the product retains all of its naturally-occurring nutrients. Coconut sugar doesn't strain one's blood sugar level in the same way that traditional white sugar does, so the body is ultimately under less stress as it does not need to work as hard to regulate itself. Coconut sugar also provides small amounts of phytonutrients, such as polyphenols, flavonoids and anthocyanin, as well as the B vitamin inositol, often used as a mood booster. Fructose is a variety of sugar that the human body converts quickly to triglyceride, a type of fat-specifically, in the liver. While agave nectar is 90% fructose and high-fructose corn syrup is 55% fructose, by comparison, Tresomega Nutrition organic coconut sugar has only 45% fructose, making it a healthier option than other similar sweeteners. In 2014, the United Nations' Food and Agriculture Organization selected coconut sugar to be the most sustainable sweetener in the world, due to the diminished amounts of water and fuel it requires to grow the crop-so it's god for the environment, too!
