6 Amazing Benefits of Switching to Coconut Sugar

By now, we all know how addicting sugar can be. That said, there are, in fact, healthier, more natural ways to sweeten your coffee without cutting out sugar. Yes, seriously.

Enter coconut sugar.

As it turns out, coconut sugar is not only an ultra nutritious alternative to table sugar, but also a more organic one. Read on how below.

  1. Electrolytes Galore

Coconut sugar is jam-packed with potassium, magnesium, and sodium— essential nutrients that work together to regulate your body’s water content, in addition to its heart, nerve, and muscle functions. In fact, in comparison to regular sugar, it has nearly 400 times more potassium, according to PETA. 

  1. Low-Glycemic Index (GI)

High glycemic index (GI) foods can cause your blood sugar to suddenly spike, making a negative impact on your insulin levels. Coconut sugar ranges relatively low in the GI count, ranking just 35 on the index as opposed to the regular table sugar which ranks between 60 to 65. To really put this into perspective: the GI of the sugar that’s naturally found in fruit is around 25.

  1. Not Messed With

Unlike the extensive refining process regular sugar has to undergo, coconut sugar is pure and straight out of nature. In other words, it’s not messed with— at all. Speaking of…

  1. Vegetarian- and Vegan-Friendly

Plant-based foodies, rejoice! Coconut sugar is 100% vegetarian- and vegan-friendly. Why, you say? Well, it all boils down to point #3: Turns out, normal sugar is refined by using bone char (yes, bone char is a thing) which is not the case with coconut sugar. The more you know, huh?

  1. Contains Less Calories

While five grams of regular sugar has around 40 calories, the same amount of coconut sugar has around 20 to 25 calories. You do the math

  1. Great for Your Gut

Perhaps the most surprising fact on this list: coconut sugar has probiotics. Yes, we’re talking about the same probiotics that are jam-packed in your favorite yogurt. “There is a fibre in coconut sugar called inulin which is a dietary fibre that is great for your gut,” Sushma, a dietician at Jindal Naturecure Institute, explained to wellness site, Health Shots. “It acts as a prebiotic and keeps gut-related issues at bay.”
