Ok, for the record I hardly ever use sweeteners. Except this morning I used maybe a half of a tablespoon of coconut nectar on my coconut flour pancakes. I only make these on weekends. I'm just curious if this is a good sweetener to use on those occasional times when I do need a sweetener, like for a pumpkin pie I'll make on Halloween. Or is this stuff going to kill me and make me gain over nine thousand pounds?
I think it's a good choice, as far as an added sweetener goes. It's low fructose, which is a big plus! (Not that I'm anti-fructose in the form of whole fruit, but for an added sweetener, I'd rather go lower on that.)
The major component of coconut sugar is sucrose (70-79%) followed by glucose and fructose (3-9%) each. http://www.realrawfood.com/coconut-nectar-and-sugar
Haven't tried it myself, though, along with most coconut stuff.
