WorldWide Botanicals Date Sugar
About Date Sugar:
100% pure, pitted deglet noor dates are solar dried at a low temperature and ground to a sugar consistency to product the concentrated sweet, caramel flavor that makes dates beloved the world over. Delicious when added to baked goods, date sugar can replace some or all of cane sugar or any other sweetener called for in a recipe. Don''t expect it to dissolve in liquid though; it isn''t soluble like sugar. Instead it contains fiber, which is highly beneficial for your digestion and elimination.
Date sugar has a lower glycemic index than cane sugar due to fiber slowing down the absorption of the complex carbohydrates when moving through the intestines. If you''re motivated to cut down on sugar, dates are the perfect way to wean your taste buds off of excessive sweetness. With high potassium and calcium content along with trace minerals, vitamins and free radical-fighting polyphenols, dates are a nutrient-dense food that provides you with more than just sweet pleasure!
