NUSWEET Coconut sugar does not taste like coconut, because it is not derived from the coconut, but from the sap of coconut flower. The colour ranges from beige to light brown and is of a powdery consistency. Its sweetening power is comparable to that of retail sugar. The sweetness is accompanied by aromas reminiscent of caramel.
For home cooking, NUSWEET is a healthy alternative to the usual white sugar. It can be used for drinks, cooking, baking and sweetening in the same proportion like white sugar. From muesli, chocolate mousse to grandma's favourite Sunday cake; all well-known recipes succeed as usual. This is an advantage of coconut sugar that other alternative sweeteners do not offer.
The consumption of NUSWEET coconut sugar provides valuable health aspects. NUSWEET is vegan by nature. The whole process of production is also free from products of animal origin. NUSWEET contains no gluten. The lower glycemic index of NUSWEET is an interesting benefit not only for diabetics. The glycemic index measures the effect of starchy food on the blood sugar level by means of a scale. The higher the specified index value, the higher the blood sugar level, and the more insulin the pancreas must produce. NUSWEET coconut sugar has a lower impact on blood sugar than many other sugar types.
Other benefits are provided by NUSWEET coconut sugar from its valuable ingredients. Since it is not refined, all plant substances are preserved. Consequently, it is a genuine organic wholefood product among the sweeteners. NUSWEET coconut sugar contains almost all the vitamin B complex and essential minerals such as magnesium, calcium and iron.
NUSWEET coconut sugar is a organically produced, valuable food, which boasts health as well as sustainable benefits. The Food and Agriculture Organisation of WHO (Food & Agriculture Org.) considers coconut sugar as the most sustainable sweetener in the world.
