Palmyrah Sugar (Palm Sugar) can it be used by diabetics?

I am told by an Acupuncture Specialist who is treating my wife undergoing dialysis that we must be cautious against using Sugar Free sugar is bad for diabetics..We have been using this for years...But now he advises that we can use Palmyrah Sugar also known as Palm Sugar (derived from the fruit of palm tree) .I got this pack of Palm Sugar available from a store selling organic pulses and cereals...Can anybody enlighten me more on this subject?

  • Palm sugar, in fact ANY sugar is the very worst thing you can give to a diabetic.

    Sugar and refined carbohydrate is the prime reason you wife is diabetic! And what a acupuncturist is doing by advising this underlines the depth of ignorance plaguing the diabetic community.

  • Oh..Thank you Sir!

  • Dear friend, His advice is for your goodness. Don't take sugar or any sweeteners. It's not good for diabetic patients. Compared to these Palmyra sugar is far beyond better. It's contents are so far protein rich 55% & 45% sugar.So if you need for sweet this may be accepted.

  • But in any forms sweet is not good for diabetic patients. Any festival days for homely preparations to her you may take Palmyra sugar.This will be 4 or 5 days in a year.

  • Thank you bro!
