Big Tree Farms coconut palm sugar is Nature's Perfect Sweetener. Unlike regular sugar, coconut palm sugar is low on the glycemic index, high in nutrients and has 16 vital amino acids. Just use it like you would normally use sugar, it is a perfect 1:1 ratio. Because it is low glycemic, you won't get the "sugar crash" other sweeteners give you. We add just a hint of stevia leaf to every batch we make so some extra sweetness is there for those that like that sweet satisfaction. It tastes great and your body will thank you.
