100% pure organic coconut syrup is another liquid natural food sweetener that can be used in paleo recipes as an alternative to raw honey or 100% maple syrup. Coconut syrup is extracted from the sap of the coconut blossom. It has a sweet caramel or toffee flavour and blends well into homemade chocolate and delicious on pancakes. It has two reasons it stands out, its low glycemic index (low GI 35 compared to sugar at 68) and the nutrient content (vitamin B complex, vitamin C, amino acids and other important minerals). Use as a treat just like other natural food sweeteners and don't over indulge.
