When you shop for sugars and seasonings, do you consider the health benefits of products? If your answer is no, well, it’s about time that you do.
Sugar is one of the most widely-consumed processed foods in the world today. Most people use sugar to sweeten their daily cup of coffee, but consuming too much can have detrimental side effects that include diabetes, liver disease, heart problems and more. But that doesn’t mean that you have to give up sugar completely – just give up the unhealthy varieties of processed white sugar.
Switch to coconut sugar instead! These are the benefits of coconut sugar:
Good for diabetics: Coconut sugar contains inulin, a type of fiber that slows down glucose absorption, making it a healthy alternative for diabetics. Inulin helps keep glucose levels in check while maintaining healthy antioxidant levels and reducing markers of oxidative stress.
Rich in vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients: Coconut sugar is rich in good-for-you vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients. In fact, coconut sugar contains two times more iron and zinc than regular granulated sugar. Coconut sugar also contains flavonoids, polyphenols, and anthocyanidins that reduce blood sugar, cholesterol, and inflammation.
Good for your gut: The inulin content of coconut sugar helps encourage the growth of healthy bacteria in the stomach, which are usually found in probiotics. These healthy bacteria improves the immune system, especially if you are taking medications such as antibiotics.
