Is coconut sugar better for you than refined sugar?

It’s very similar to regular table sugar, although it’s not as processed and contains minor amounts of nutrients. If you’re going to use coconut sugar, use it sparingly. Coconut sugar belongs in the same boat as most sugar alternatives. It’s healthier than refined sugar but definitely worse than no sugar at all.

Why coconut sugar is better than refined sugar

  1. Electrolytes – Coconut sugar contains potassium, magnesium, and sodium, which are all essential for regulating your body’s water content.
  2. Low Glycemic index – Regular table sugar has a glycemic index (GI) of 65, while coconut sugar has a GI of 35.
  3. Minerals – Coconut sugar contains iron, zinc, and calcium.
  4. Nitrogen – Nitrogen helps support the cardiovascular system and helps keep your heart healthy.
  5. Vitamin C supports your immune system and helps prevent you from getting sick.
  6. Antioxidants fight off the oxidation of cells in the body, which helps combat aging.
  7. Coconut sugar contains healthy fats caled Short-chain fatty acids.
  8. While standard table sugar is pure sucrose, coconut sugar only contains about 75 percent sucrose. The other 25 percent is composed of nutrients, fiber, and other “good stuff.”
