This sweet solid is, in both cases, sucrose. Table sugar is 99.9% sucrose. Coconut sugar is about 70-80% sucrose–but that doesn’t make it any healthier. The remaining 20-30% of coconut sugar is largely free glucose or fructose–the same two sugars that sucrose is converted into (during digestion) when you eat sucrose. Gram for gram, table sugar and coconut sugar contain nearly identical.
A sweetener that has become very popular in the past few years is coconut sugar. This sugar is derived from the coconut palm tree and touted as. Instead, a lower glycemic index coupled with slightly lower amounts of fructose makes coconut sugar, like honey, a slightly better alternative to table sugar and an acceptable occasional “proceed with caution” sweetener. Nutrients aside, it’s still mostly sugar and can create similar problems with your liver and blood sugar.
One of the big selling points – and health claims – for coconut sugar is that it is low on the glycemic index, which ranks carbohydrate foods on the basis of how they affect blood sugar (glucose). Sweeteners derived from cane sugar can overly stress the pancreas as the glycemic index of these sweeteners is high compared with coconut sugar. Even maple syrup has a rather high glycemic index in comparison. The glycemic index (GI) is the rate of how fast blood sugar levels rise after eating a particular type of food. What makes coconut palm sugar healthier than refined cane sugar besides its supposed low glycemic index is the fact that it is higher in minerals than refined cane sugar and also contains some inulin, a starchy prebiotic fiber.
Overall, coconut sugar is still considered a better choice if you’re looking for an alternative sweetener or granulated sugar substitute, since it does contain some trace elements. These include some iron, zinc, calcium, potassium, some short-chain fatty acids, polyphenols and other antioxidants, and a fiber known as inulin. Honey 1 cup = 960 cal.
