You cannot think of tropical without thinking of the swaying coconut trees. Not only are they a sight to behold, but the coconut palm tree (of which there are 19 varieties in Sri Lanka) is super useful. Every single part of it is used to make food, beverages, utensils, household items and even rafters.
Coconut sugar is known to score around 35 on the Glycemic Index when compared to refined regular sugars that score in the range of 60 – 70. High GI foods can cause your blood sugar to spike suddenly and this affects your insulin levels. Thus it is safe to say that coconut sugar is a healthier alternative if blood sugar levels are of concern to you.
Coconut Sugar with its hint of caramel is very similar to brown sugar in taste, colour and consistency. You can therefore replace your regular unhealthy and refined sugars with coconut sugar with no major difference to taste and sweetness. When cooking with coconut sugar, the end result may be darker than when using white sugar.
