  • Coconut Secret Raw Coconut Crystals

    Has anyone used Coconut Secret Raw Coconut Crystals?
    It's a sugar repalcement.

    Coconut Crystals

    Is it primal?
    Can it be used on the Leptin reset?

    It's sugar. If sugar is allowed during LR, there's you answer.
    Keep in mind there are 16 tablespoons in a cup, and 1T serving of the crystals is 7g carb. LR wants you to keep your carbs below 50g. IMO, crystals are a no-go.

      Yeah, I thought it was too good to be true!
      I can use a tbs., though, with cacao, coconut butter, and shredded coconut to make 'candy'.

        why not just use stevia? 0 carb.

          Because Stevia doesn't always taste good with all things :P And, it doesn't give the same texture, either. Personally, I like variety

            I agree. I think stevia has an aftertaste.

              Put me in with the Stevia Is Icky group. I keep trying it, thinking that it should be better. It isn't. :-(

                1T = 7g carb that's pretty low. How much would you need to achieve the desired level of sweetness?

                  I put 3 tbs. in my recipe that yielded 8 candy patties. That's about 2.62 carbs from the coconut sugar per bar.

                    I use coconut secret crystals but understand they are not a free pass for sweet foods, but they are probably the best option after stevia, and I don't particularly like the taste of stevia.

                    A little coconut sugar in coffee probably won't hurt, and can help with the taste a lot.

                      I was on splenda for years prior to going Primal. Stevia had 0 aftertaste compared to splenda, which is why I like it so much better. Maybe y'all just aren't adapted?

                        That's pretty good.
