Healthy Sweetner for Diabetics: Coconut Nectar
Diabetics need to know that they do not have to avoid all sweetners…yes, white sugar and artificial sweetners are extremely unhealthy…but natural source sweeteners such as Coconut Nectar are not only wonderful tasting, but they provide a great deal of nutrition along with a very low average Glycemic Index (GI) of 35.
Coconut nectar ingredients include an abundant source of minerals, 17 amino acids, Vitamin C, B Vitamins, naturally contains a prebiotic and it has a nearly neutral pH. Raw coconut sap is grown without chemicals, pesticides or herbicides and the process does not require heating and extensive processing as do other syrups such as maple and agave. This product is a raw syrup that is enzymatically alive, gluten free, non-diary, vegan and GMO free.
Coconut nector is different from coconut water and milk. It is tapped from the tree blossoms themselves, thus it is environmentally safe and does not damage the tree in any way. The health benefits, especially to diabetics is amazing.
Coconut Nector typically contains as low as 0.5% glucose, 1.5% fructose, 16% sucrose and 82% inulin. It has a naturally mild, sweet flavor and because it is free of coconutty essence, it can be used in limitless ways…anywhere you would use other syrups (pancakes, toppings) or sugar (tea, coffee, beverage sweetner, baking etc).
This indeed is a blessing for those suffering diabetes and those who wish to avoid the disease in the first place, as it is supports health and makes it possible for everyone to have their sweet tooth satisfied without regret.
