Coconut sugar is still sugar, but we'll come back to that. The first issue is that we have a choice to make.
Coconut sugar, also called coconut palm sugar, is made by cutting the coconut flower and draining the sap. This of course kills the flower that otherwise would have been a coconut. So there is your choice. Producing more coconut sugar means less availability and higher prices on coconut oil, milk, flakes and flour. Is it worth it?
