Coconut Sugar from: £5.00
Coconut sugar is made from the sugar blossoms of fresh coconuts found in the tropics. It is harvested by slicing the bud of the coconut tree flower to release the sap or coconut nectar. This nectar is then boiled into a thick caramel and dried into crystals. Nothing is removed during this process. Coconut sugar is similar in texture and taste to brown sugar but far outweighs the latter's nutritional profile.
Coconut sugar's glycaemic index is approximately 35, which is considered very low. Low glycaemic index foods can help balance and control health conditions such as diabetes, high cholesterol and obesity. Eating low glycaemic may also protect your body against cardiovascular disease and hypoglycaemia (a condition that causes the body to overproduce insulin and take too much sugar away, leaving sufferers feeling weak, tired, irritable and always hungry).
Coconut sugar contains the minerals calcium, magnesium, potassium, zinc, iron, copper, manganese, phosphorus and boron. Minerals are necessary for many body functions, such as muscle and bone growth, cell production, mental development, the immune system and enzyme regulation.
Coconut sugar contains 16 out of the 20 amino acids and is especially high in glutamic acid, which makes glutamine and is very important for metabolic function, as well as threonine, aspartic acid and serine.
