Coconut syrup is made by tapping the coconut tree to release the sap. The sap is then heated and water evaporates, leaving a concentrated syrup. Coconut syrup can then be used to make coconut sugar.
Coconut syrup, nectar and sugar are less refined and slightly more nutrient dense than table sugar. However they are still a sugar and should be consumed sparingly. Excessive added sugar intake is associated with adverse health conditions, including obesity, metabolic syndrome, and inflammatory diseases. Excessive sugar consumption may trigger neuroadaptations in the brain that decouple eating behavior from caloric needs and leads to compulsive overeating. The American Heart Association suggests an added-sugar limit of no more than 24 grams of sugar for most women and no more than 36 grams of sugar for most men each day.
