Organic coconut palm sugar is better for digestion and the gut than your normal, everyday sugar, and it holds trace amounts of vitamins and minerals. It is however, still sugar so whilst having a lower GI, it should still be treated as a 'better' sugar and not an alternative to sugar. It does contain Inulin which is believed to help slow glucose absorption. Diabetics should remain wary as Coconut Palm sugar contains the same amount of calories and carbs as table sugar, so should be treated in the same way.
So in summary it's a better alternative, just as honey is. However, one should not over indulge, having lots in drinks, cereals and desserts. Like most things, it is not a silver bullet and therefore is best when used sparingly.
