Coconut sugar is considered a healthy natural sugar. According to a study by the Philippine Food and Nutrition Research Institute, it has a low GI of 35. In comparison, cane sugar has a GI of 68.
Glycemic Index Classification By helping to maintain lower blood sugar and insulin levels, coconut sugar can be part of a low-GI diet which may help to prevent and treat a variety of health problems, including diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, hypoglycemia, and obesity. It is also rich in nutrients compared to cane sugars (see comparison chart below). So for those who need to watch their glucose intake or are looking for a healthier sweetener, coconut sugar is a great alternative.

I was immediately struck by the delicious yellow hue this Coconut Flour has. Whether it is purely just by chance that I found it has a much fuller color compared to this other brand or because it really contains more nutrients...I'm not sure, but if I could test and compare the nutrient profile as a skilled scientist, I would love to see if there is any difference.  For now I'll have to wait on that and just enjoy the loveliness of Coconut World's Coconut Flour.

"Coconut Flour is a nourishing alternative to wheat and other grain-based flours. Its unique properties include:
  • Gluten-free
  • High in dietary fiber
  • A good source of protein
  • Low in digestible carbohydrates
  • Unrefined and unbleached

Coconut flour has a light coconut flavor and a natural sweetness making it a delicious choice to use in a variety of baked goods. To substitute in a recipe using wheat flour, replace up to 25% with coconut flour as well as an equal amount of liquid."-coconutworld.com
Coconut Jam Product Image
"Coconut milk and coconut syrup combine to create this delicious and nourishing spread. Enjoy this exquisite treat on crackers with cheese. Spread on toast or a sandwich. Use it as a fruit dip. Natural oil separation may occur, just stir at room temperature. No refrigeration necessary."-coconutworld.com

The jam is such a great alternative to normal jam for those who are sensitive to fruits, processed sugar or nuts.  I love how they use simple, beneficial ingredients in this great jam.  Creamy, rich, and the perfect consistency for spreading, with a delicious coconutty taste.
