What is Coconut Sugar?
Unlike table sugar, coconut sugar is unrefined, maintaining all the nutritional elements that are frequently destroyed during industrial processing. Derived from the sap of the coconut palm tree, coconut sugar boasts many of the same health-promoting properties as other coconut products. This mineral-rich sweetener is the perfect way to satisfy your sweet tooth with no guilty consequence.
Organic Coconut Sugar: A Healthy Sugar Alternative
Coconut Sugar is a low-glycemic sweetener that has been shown to support healthy blood sugar balance. A study published by the Food and Nutrition Research Institute compared the glycemic indexes of both coconut sugar and table sugar on a scale of 100, indicating a value of 35 and 60, respectively. Viva Naturals Organic Coconut Sugar is a one-to-one ratio with table sugar, helping you to achieve the same sweetness without the corresponding sugar spike.
Because coconut sugar is unrefined, it maintains essential nutrients like calcium, potassium, iron and zinc. A study published by the Food and Nutrition Research Institute indicated that coconut sugar had roughly double of the amount of iron compared to ordinary table sugar in a 100g serving.
The Viva Labs Difference
To produce Viva Labs’ Organic Coconut Sugar, local farmers “tap” the unopened flowers of coconut palm trees, oozing with sweet coconut nectar. Prior to heating, the sap is poured through a strainer, ensuring all waste matter is removed. Viva Labs processes the sap immediately after collection, obtaining a better quality sugar and sweet flavor. The sap then undergoes a reduction process under heat, evaporating unwanted moisture, leaving you with pure, granulated organic coconut sugar.

I feel I need to apologize to the Viva Naturals people for the less than glowing review. I did not mean that I didn't like the product. I do like it and I still use it. I just meant that I found I cannot use it in everything I bake. The flavor compliments some things I bake. Sorry, Viva. Sorry also to their potential customers.
I was looking for a healthy option for cooking with sugar as I need to cut sugar out of my diet. While this is a quality product, I've since learned that coconut sugar is only slightly better than the regular stuff. As a diabetic, i'm disheartened but cannot fault the product. They really made no substantial claims beyond reference to the glycemic index which appears accurate. Like regular sugar, used in moderation it is a nice option that provides a unique taste. I'm sure there are chef's out there that can take advantage of that. Do your own research as getting the straight facts can be difficult these days.
Lower on the glycemic index than regular sugar
some extra nutrient value
rich maple like taste
1 to 1 sugar alternative
There are better "healty" options
Now that I have gotten into using this Coconut Sugar, my entire outlook on it has changed. I absolutely love it now. Mostly, I use it to make sweet tea. It is absolutely delicious. I mix it with regular sugar and the taste is phenomenal. I find myself craving tea more and more. I know that I should have given the product more of a chance prior to writing my first review. I do still believe it should be offered in a smaller bag as well as this 6 lb one as well. Perhaps the makers will consider this in the future. I will most definitely purchase this one again. I already have it in my wish list ready to order again right before my current bag is empty. I know there will be more foods that I try this in, given time. I did try it with oatmeal and it was really good. I hope, if you haven't tried it, you might give it a chance. If it came in a smaller bag, I'm sure more would order it. This huge bag is expensive and if you aren't sure if you will like it or not, more people will choose not to get it.
