Date Sugar

Date sugar, not to be mistaken for date palm sugar, is a natural sugar made from hundreds of dehydrated dates that are ground down to create a sugar-like texture that is full of all the nutrients and goodness found in dates. With it’s natural sweet flavour that resembles caramel or butterscotch, it can appear like brown sugar but is far less grainy and healthier too. Dates have become increasingly popular in recent years in particularly amongst vegans and rightly so. Dates have so many nutritional benefits and makes a delicious sugar replacement in luxurious home baking.

Why choose date sugar?

Date sugar is high in fibre (just like a whole, pitted date) and makes a great substitute for other sugars in baking. Switching to date sugar during baking can be a healthier alternative when compared to other sugars such as granulated or brown sugar. Many well-known snack brands have made the switch to date sugar, which has naturally boosted the nutritional content within the products which is fantastic news for the health conscious who avoid consuming products with added sugar. When using date sugar it can be used as a one-for-one replacement n recipes.

How do I use date sugar?

Date sugar can be used not only in baking but can also be used at mealtimes to add a caramel flavour to sauces and is great rubbed into meats before cooking. If sweet and savoury isn’t to your taste, simply sprinkle on top of your warming bowl of morning porridge for a sweet, nutritious bowl of goodness at the most important meal of the day.
