Coconut Sugar VS Arrenga Palm Sugar
Basically coconut sugar and palm sugar have almost the same shape and taste. There is only a slight difference in the raw material of this product. Coconut sugar is made from the sap of the coconut tree which is cooked, while palm sugar comes from the sap of the palm tree which is cooked. The unique fact is, coconut trees and palm trees are still 1 family (palm tree).
But despite the many similarities between these 2 products, palm sugar has a slightly different color and taste. Palm sugar has a darker color than coconut sugar.
