Coconut palm nectar is the sap from the coconut tree (similar to maple syrup). It has many health benefits since it is raw and pure. Other sweeteners have been heated and overly processed, losing most of their nutritional value.
Coconut nectar contains 17 amino acids, as well as many minerals and vitamins. It has a low glycemic index and is a safe alternative for diabetics. It is also low in fructose and is a perfect heart healthy sweetener that can reduce cholesterol.
Coconut nectar can replace sugar or other sweeteners 1:1. It has neutral flavor so it will not affect the flavor of the food it is added to, only its sweetness.
