Palm sugar – also known as coconut sugar, coconut palm sugar, coconut sap and coconut crystals – is a low glycemic sweetener made from the evaporated sap of the coconut flower.
And while palm sugar tastes a lot like brown sugar, it produces a much smaller effect on your blood sugar and insulin levels. In fact, sugar scores a 60-65 on the glycemic index, but palm sugar comes in at a low glycemic 35!
In recent clinical studies, coconut sugar was found to help maintain blood sugar levels. Take a look at the comparison chart below of glucose and palm sugar on blood sugar levels:
But the benefits of palm sugar don’t end there. It’s also denser in minerals – including potassium and magnesium – than table sugar.
It’s important to note that palm sugar is not a sugar free sweetener. It does, in fact, contain “sugars. That’s why we use it in combination with erythritol or stevia at Wellness Bakeries. By adding just a little palm sugar, you can achieve a wonderful brown sugar or caramel flavor to your gluten free desserts.
