Great surprise! This stuff tastes EXACTLY like delicious brown sugar. No funky aftertaste or oddness. Just awesome yum. Due to a chronic illness, I had to go sugar free and grain free. So birch xylitol, sweetleaf stevia, monk fruit sweetener, became my BEST FRIENDS. I was fearful coconut sugar would be sugar and cause problems. But it is safe for me! Love this stuff!
I enjoy this as an alternative to white refined sugar in my coffee mostly. It does have a different taste but it is similar to that of a flavored coffee or creamer. I also used it to make a sweet potato casserole for Christmas dinner and it was like the "secret ingredient," everyone commented on how delicious they were. You cold use it in any desert recipe, I have sprinkled it on no sugar added vanilla ice cream also.My main reason for trying this product is that I am a type II diabetic and I had read that coconut sugar does not raise your insulin level like refined white sugar does, for me this is true. I am thrilled that I can have delicious coffee sweetened with a natural product and my insulin level does not soar. Also, from what I have read about them it is much safer to use than sugar substitutes.
I've completely abandoned refined white sugar except for a teaspoon or two per week.That's generally topping off my 32 oz. iced coffee that I always have in my hand, because I didn't put enoughof the C sugar in there. This stuff will not melt into your cold beverages, keep taht in mind.I've bought a lot of this in the last year, Madhava and other brands as well.SOLELY for the glycemic index reduction, this is worth using instead of the fructoses, cane sugars, etc.The flavor is unique, but excellent. It does NOT taste like coconut. There's a gentle earthiness anda touch of a type of smoky bit to it. It's all very subtle.
This was a surprise - I was expecting some coconut-y tasting sugar and it actually tasted like a really light brown sugar only better. Since I'd never had it before, I was leary of getting 6 bags but the price was good and it's supposed to tbe the healthiest sugar alternative so I jumped in for the order and I'm glad I did. I've yet to use it in baking as I just got it but it tastes good just by itself and doesn't have the strange aftertaste you get from tasting just plain brown sugar or white sugar for that matter. This is now my go-to sugar fo anything and everything.
I have been looking for alternatives to sugar for ages and have tried it all. I refuse to ingest artificial sweeteners and even Stevia products aren't that appealing. For quite some time I've just stuck with honey, maple syrup or white sugar. I'd rather keep it real and have less than go fake. But I recently discovered coconut palm sugar and am so excited! It reminds me of the time I found granulated honey. It's a *real*, natural product. It's still sugar, but at least you get added nutrients. There are claims regarding the glycemic index of this product. I cannot speak to it, but I will say that the wonders of coconut seem to never cease (I am a huge fan of coconut oil) so I wouldn't be surprised. I still treat it like I'm consuming regular sugar and keep the amount moderate. It's granulation is similar to white sugar and it acts and melts/blends as white sugar does. If you are using it in a recipe with light ingredients, the color will be affected akin to if you used brown sugar. If I had to describe it, I'd say it was like a cross between white and brown sugar with a lighter taste. Perhaps even better would be to say it has a bit of that "sugar in the raw" quality, only a much finer granule. I use this in my coffee every morning and it's especially lovely in recipes like french toast. I haven't tried it in baking yet, so I don't know how it creams with butter, but I have to imagine it'd work just great. I'm delighted to have it even just for my coffee!
Good stuff. It tastes great, works pretty well in most recipes (those which require a non-grainy texture may require dissolving it into a syrup first), and its glycemic impact is relatively unnoticeable. This sugar is all I use in everything, now.Generally speaking, coconut sugar is always described as a 1:1 replacement for refined sugar. I don't find coconut sugar as sweet as white sugar--which is a good thing. However, if you do like things that sweet, it may not be a 1:1 replacement for you. This would impact measurements for some recipes. Also, if you intend to bake with this sugar, it won't cream butter the way that refined sugar does. Small details in the chemistry that render a tasty treat, but do affect how you are used to managing the process. Likewise, when I'm baking very lightly flavored items, like vanilla cake or lemon cookies, the caramel notes of the sugar overshadow other delicate flavors. Just something to be aware of, as well as it turns out a browner product.In all, though, this sugar is all-win, and the price for the amount is very good.
