Coco Natura Coco Sugar and Coco Jam: Nature's Finest Sweetener, a Healthy Alternative to Sugar

Sunday, August 03, 2014
Do you have a sweet tooth? I do. And honestly, while consuming sugary treats can induce guilt that is not easy do deal with, sugar is something I cannot completely eliminate in my diet. Sure I have tried artificial sweeteners and other sugar substitutes widely available in the market. Yet, the problem with these things is that I never liked the taste. For some reason, it always left an after-taste in my mouth that made me feel like I ate chemicals/synthetic. It’s always been a dilemma. So when I was asked to sample Coco Natura’s Coco Sugar, I agreed in the hope that I might finally find a healthy alternative to sugar which taste I would like.

Coco Natura’s Coco Sugar, is a healthy alternative to refined sugar and artificial sweeteners which is made from 100% organic coconut sap. It is said to be produced with minimal processing to assure that majority of the vitamins, minerals, and amino acid in the coconut sap will remain intact, making it way healthier to consume than the usual sugar and other sweeteners. It is also said that Coco Natura’s Coco Sugar, is free from additives, artificial flavorings, and anti-fermenting agents.  This can be the best bet for people who has diabetes or those who want to eliminate the harmful effects of sugar in their bodies.

Now, there are other coconut sugars available in the market, but not all brands are the same. Coco Natura boasts of the fact that they do not blend their coconut sugar with additives or flavorings.  They stand by the fact that theirs are made from freshly harvested and organically grown coconut sap which hails from the Southern part of the Philippines.  The quality of their product gained them various certifications, proof that they are doing a great job in producing nature’s finest sweetener.

Coco Natura also ensures that their Coco Sugar has a low Glycemic Index (IG) of 35 only, hence does not have a bad effect on body's blood sugar making it safe to consume even by diabetic patients. Note that low IG-diet is associated with decreased risk of type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, stroke, metabolic problems, and other risky health threats.

With some research and consultations to some of my friends in the medical field, I figured that coconut sugar is indeed a healthy alternative to sugar made out of sugar cane. The fact that Coco Natura made sure that their product is processed in such a way that the health benefits are not reduced into tiny proportion is comforting. I also love the fact that by supporting this product, I am also supporting local farmers here in the country.

Now, as for the taste, Coco Natura's Coco Sugar is way way better than the artificial sweeteners I have tried before. It does not have the chemical-taste which I hated so much in my sugar. The coconut taste is still there when you take it as it is. When used in coffee or tea, which I did, the coconut taste was gone and it left only a sweet taste I expected. It is said that this coconut sugar can also be used in baking and cooking food, that, I will still yet to try.

Aside from Coco Sugar, Coco Natura also boasts of their Coco Jam made from 100% natural ingredients. I tried this jam just once and I am happy with its thick consistency and impressive flavor that didn't gave me severe fear of health risk. I must say that this Coco Natura Coco Jam deserve a separate blog post of its own because it's really good.
