  1. Is palm sugar the same as coconut palm sugar? I have looked everywhere for palm sugar, but can only find coconut palm sugar. Thanks!

    1. Hi Dawn, great question! Palm sugar is also referred to as date palm sugar, and is derived from the sap of a date palm tree. Coconut sugar, or coconut palm sugar, is made from the sap of the coconut tree. Both are considered natural sweeteners, and can be used interchangeably. Both natural sweeteners have a lower glycemic load than refined, processed sweeteners. I hope this helps! Have a great week!
