What is Coconut Sugar?
Coconut Sugar by FoodSeries is a foodstuff, based on sugar from the plant Cocos nucifera.
Coconut sugar is extracted from the sap, which is the fluid that circulates inside the flowers of the coconut tree. A more natural version, with no refining process, maintaining all its natural flavour and properties.
In addition to its organoleptic characteristics (texture, flavour and density), it differs from other food products due to all its nutritional characteristics, which have led to a large number of consumers preferring to buy this product over other formats.

A raw version
Coconut sugar is obtained through a process of filtering, heating, cooling and drying, which means that you are dealing with a product that is much less treated and processed than table sugar.
Our product has not undergone a refining process, so it is a more nutritious version.
Rich in micronutrients
Coconut sugar is a richer source of nutrients than other classic sweeteners.
Its iron and zinc content is significantly higher than that of table sugar, and even higher than that of brown sugar, which is characterised by lower nutrient content due to refining (Food and Nutrition Research Institute, n.d.).
Coconut sugar is also high in fibre.
Glycaemic index of 35
Coconut sugar has been studied as an alternative food sweetener as its fibre content and all its properties have been discovered.
Coconut sugar has been categorised by the FNRI as a 'low glycaemic index' carbohydrate-rich food.
Coconut sugar has a glycaemic index of 35 while table sugar has a glycaemic index of 60.
How to take coconut sugar?
You can consume as much as you like, until you reach the desired taste of the product you are sweetening. Or until your nutritional needs are met.
The sweetening power of coconut sugar is almost identical to that of table sugar, so a serving of 7.5g is a standard recommendation for sweetening a drink of approximately 250ml.
