Recently a reader emailed me to ask if I had heard of coconut sap. “Coconut sap” is a brilliant name for what I’ve been calling “Coconut Sugar.” Why? Because the term, “sugar”, is associated with white refined sugar, which is very bad for you. White refined sugar leads to heart disease, and hypoglycemia, and causes obesity, and diabetes (just to name a few). White refined sugar also feeds the growth of cancer cells as well as yeast or candida.
There are several coconut sugar brands, but the typical grocery store probably won’t carry them. Most health food stores will keep it shelved, but I buy mine from iHerb (and you’ll save $5 with your first order using code ROZ388).
