ORGANIC DATE SUGAR, dried, ground
Botanical Name: Phoenix dactylifera

Dates are, by general consensus, the world’s oldest known fruit. They have been grown throughout the Middle East and North Africa for over 6,000 years, a dietary staple and incorporated into almost every meal or eaten alone. Ancient cultures referred to date palms as “the tree of life”. Traditionally, dates were used to break fasts as they have high carbohydrate and sugar contents, immediately raising blood sugars and providing instantaneous energy.
Qualities: Date sugar is a whole food sugar that contains all the health benefits of dates, including the fiber, and minerals such as potassium, magnesium, and manganese.
Common Use: Makes for a great whole food sweetener and sugar substitute
Storage: This is an unrefined product and may contains clumps or be prone to clumping. It is important to store in a cool, dry, dark place in a well sealed container.

The healthiest sweetener!
Research indicates that date sugar is by far the healthiest sweetener on the planet. It is also the only "whole food" sweetener meaning it is also the only unprocessed sweetener on the market - nothing bad added and nothing good taken away. It is full of fibre and antioxidants. Make date sugar your choice for sweetening baked goods, sauces and other items. https://nutritionfacts.org/video/the-healthiest-sweetener/
Great natural sweetener
I love using this to bake with. You just have to adjust your recipes slightly since it is not soluble, it acts more like a flour/fiber.
