What is Coconut Sugar?
The Coconut Sugar by HSNfoods is an alternative to traditional sugar that is obtained from cane or beetroot.
Coconut sugar comes from the sap, which is the fluid that runs inside the coconut tree flowers. Above all, it is a more natural and unrefined version that still preserves all its natural flavor and properties.
Why take coconut sugar?
Coconut sugar is less treated than other sugars extracted from more conventional sources. Do you want to know more about the properties from this product? Do not miss anything!

A raw version
The coconut sugar is obtained through a filtration, heat, cold and dry process that results in a much less treated and processed product than tabletop sugar.
Our product has not been refined, which is why it preserves more phytonutrients, resulting in a more nutritious version.
Rich in micronutrients
Coconut sugar has much more nutrients in its composition than other products thank to the less aggressive processing.
Its iron and zinc content is significantly higher than tabletop sugar, even brown sugar. These are products that have less nutrients because they have been refined (Food and Nutrition Research Institute, s.f.).
Low glycemic index
Coconut sugar has been studied as an alternative to sweeten foods after discovering its fiber content and all its properties.
The speed of this process is known as glycemic index, therefore, a product with a high glycemic index will trigger a 'glucose peak' in the blood.
Coconut sugar has been defined by the FNRI as a food rich in low glycemic index carbohydrates according to the standards established by the FAO and WHO in 1997.
In fact, coconut sugar has a low glycemic index (35) while tabletop sugar has a medium glycemic index (60). Therefore, it is the best choice for those who want to control their blood glucose concentrations.
