Doctor Mehmet Oz says switching from regular sugar to coconut palm sugar could prevent the blood sugar crashes that make you hungry and then cause you to gain weight.
Doctor Oz explained that when you eat sugar for breakfast, you get a spike in energy and then a dip until lunch. You eat sugar for lunch, the same thing happens until dinner. This spike and dip goes on all day. Coconut palm sugar's key is its low glycemic index ranking of only 35. Your body metabolizes coconut palm sugar at a much more steady rate, thereby avoiding the sugar highs and lows.
Coconut palm sugar has a light, caramel flavor that works as a great substitute for white sugar. Plus, it substitutes equally for sugar, so if your recipe calls for 1/2 cup of white sugar, then you'd use 1/2 cup coconut palm sugar.
See why coconut palm sugar could be the best sugar alternative.
