USDA Organic LogoOrganic Coconut Sugar

Sourced from plantations in Southeast Asia, our Coconut Sugar is known for its creamy, caramel sweetness.

Coconut sugar is made from the nectar of the coconut tree (cocos nucifera). It is simply processed, yielding a clean, pure product. One of the best sugars you can use, coconut sugar has a low Glycemic Index (GI) of 35 compared to traditional sweeteners such as refined table sugar (GI 80), pasteurized honey (GI 75), raw sugar (GI 65), and evaporated cane juice (GI 55).

On his recent TV show, Dr. Mehmet Oz says that coconut sugar is the best sugar alternative.

Our sugar is high in nutrients such as Potassium, Magnesium, Zinc and Iron and is a source of Vitamins B1, B2, B3, and B6.

ONEearth’s Coconut Sugar is one of the best sugars you can use for all your sweetening needs. This type of sweetener produces “slow release energy”, the kind that sustains the human body through its daily activities.  Our sugars are the ideal choice for consumers who do not want the highs and lows associated with eating foods made with regular sugar or honey.  With a great taste and nutritional profile, it is perfect for use in:

a)Wide variety of bake goods
b)Asian food sauces (ie. Thai, Malaysian)
c)Variety of beverages (ie. coffees & teas)
d)Toppings for yogurts & cereals/granolas

This organic low glycemic sugar can be used in any application that calls for a great tasting sweetener.

Storage: Store in a cool dry place, away from humidity and heat.
Shelf Life: 2 years if stored in above conditions.

Glycemic Index and Glycemic Load Rating Chart

 

Organic Coconut Sugar Glycemic Index

The Glycemic Index (GI) is a scale that ranks food rich in carbohydrates by how they affect blood sugar levels in the body compared to glucose. The GI of glucose is 100. This numerical system measures how much of a rise (glycemic response) in circulating blood sugar a carbohydrate triggers – the higher the number, the greater the blood sugar response. A low GI food will cause a small rise, while a high GI food such as a boiled potato will trigger a dramatic spike. A GI of 70 or more is considered high, while a GI from 56 to 69 is medium, and a GI of 55 or less is rated as low. ONEEarth’s Coconut Sugar would be considered as a low GI food due to its having a GI of 35.

The Glycemic Load (GL) assesses the impact of carbohydrate consumption that takes the glycemic index into consideration.  The GI value tells us how fast a carbohydrate converts into sugar but it does not tell us how much of it is in a food.  The glycemic load, though, takes into consideration both the impact and the amount. Generally, foods that have a low GI usually have a low GL.

For coconut sugar, with its GI of 35, has a corresponding GL of 1.4.
