Coconut sugar is also called coconut palm sugar.  It’s a natural sugar made from coconut palm sap, which is the sugary circulating fluid of the coconut plant. It is often confused with palm sugar, which is similar but made from a different type of palm tree.

Regular table sugar and high fructose corn syrup don’t contain any vital nutrients and therefore supply “empty” calories.  Coconut sugar does retain quite a bit of the nutrients found in the coconut palm.

Most notable; iron, zinc, calcium and potassium, along with some short-chain fatty acids like polyphenols and antioxidants.  And it contains a fibre called inulin, which may slow glucose absorption and explain why coconut sugar has a lower glycemic index than regular table sugar.

Even though coconut sugar contains some nutrients, it is very high in calories (same as regular sugar) and you’d have to eat a ridiculous amount of it to satisfy your need for the above nutrients.
