WHY WE SWEETEN DIGESTIVE SUPPORT PROTEIN WITH COCONUT SUGAR
So, you may be asking, "why did you include coconut sugar in Digestive Support Protein by Nuzest?"
Working in collaboration with Bethany of @lilsipper, we chose coconut sugar because the protein needed just a bit of sweetness to neutralize the pea protein taste, without using fake sugar or sugar alcohols. Coconut sugar is also low glycemic and keeps the protein paleo friendly.
HOW IS COCONUT SUGAR MADE?
Coconut sugar is made from the sap of the coconut tree (not from coconuts as many think). The sap is boiled over moderate heat to evaporate most of its water content. The final product is coconut sugar.
HOW IS NATURAL CANE SUGAR MADE?
Natural cane sugar is made from sugarcane, a tropical plant. The plant is flattened under large rollers, which squeezes out all of the natural cane sugar juice used to form the sugar. This juice must then be filtered through evaporation in order to be purified. By evaporating the juice, the syrup becomes clear of dirt, soil, and other impurities. The syrup is then boiled to form sugar crystals. The sugar crystals harden and form into large mountains. These sugar crystals are then stored and refined as needed before being shipped to their final destinations.
There are only 3 grams of sugar in 2 scoops of Digestive Support Protein, and it's still safe to consume if you are battling candida, as long as you are watching everything else you are consuming.
