Why Coconut Sugar instead of Cane Sugar?


You may be asking, why make a Paleo powdered sugar instead of just using a pre-packaged organic powdered sugar made from cane sugar? For 3 simple reasons:


1. It's unrefined: that means it is a whole food based sweetener just like maple syrup and honey.


2. It has a lower glycemic index: this is important in supporting stable and consistent blood glucose levels, which is essential in overall health and wellness.


3. It is nutrient dense: since coconut sugar is unrefined, it contains small amounts of trace minerals such as potassium, iron, calcium, and zinc.
