Glycemic Index (GI) and Coconut Sugar
Coconut sugar has a significantly lower Glycemic Index (GI) than cane sugar. The glycemic index measures how fast a food is likely to raise your blood sugar. Coconut sugar, compared to cane sugar has slow and steady release of sugar into the bloodstream so that there are no rapid highs, lows or blood glucose spikes.
Coconut sugar has been clinically tested with a low GI Index rating of only 35 from a scale of 100 by the Philippine Food and Nutrition Research Institute (FNRI) of the Department of Science and Technology (DOST).

Who can benefit from eating coconut sugar and low GI foods?
Diabetics - The lower the GI, the slower the rise in blood glucose levels when the food is consumed. The effect may differ from person to person. Eating low glycemic foods is most helpful when used along with another eating plan for diabetes, such as carbohydrate counting to control blood sugar.
Cancer patients - According to new research by the Dana Farber Cancer Institute in Boston. Published in November 2012 in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute, found that of 1,011 patients with advanced colon cancer, those who had the highest “glycemic load” and carbohydrate intake were nearly twice as likely to see their cancer return. The study is among the first to look at the role of foods high on the glycemic index (GI) in cancer recurrence and bolsters a growing body of evidence suggesting diet can play an important role in surviving cancer.
Hyperactive kids and ADD-ADHD Using low glycemic coconut sugar instead of cane sugar can help because:
- It helps control blood sugar levels.
- Reduces sudden increase and decrease in blood sugar.
- It prevents a rapid rise in blood glucose, which causes a temporary surge of energy and hyperactivity.
