Date syrup

Date syrup is one of the oldest sweeteners in the world. It goes as far back as Ancient Mesopotamia, where manuscripts mention the common use of this sweetener.

This thick, dark syrup has a complex flavor and natural sweetness that’s less sugary than honey, agave nectar, or maple syrup. The molasses-like taste of date syrup does more than sweeten baked goods and sauces. It enhances them. It’s a thick, ruby red syrup with a concentrated fruity taste as it is made exclusively of dates and water

100g of date syrup contains 848mg of potassium. Dates contain several vitamins and minerals, including magnesium, potassium, zinc, calcium, and iron – as well as Vitamin C, B6, and A. One of the benefits of date syrup is its natural iron, which can help restore and increase red blood cells.

It also contains fiber that assists in regulating blood sugars better than other types of sweeteners. Date syrup registers low on the glycemic index (GI) scale (only 47, compared to refined sugar which comes in at 70), making date syrup a good option for people with diabetes. Date syrup also has antioxidants and antibacterial properties.

Antioxidant in date syrup is great for protecting cells against harmful free radicals linked to several chronic inflammation-related diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, and cancer.
