POWER PACKED SUGAR SUBSTITUTE
As a low-glycemic carbohydrate, dates provide the sweetness your customers crave without added sugars. Because dates have dietary fiber, they help your customers feel full.
Date sugars create a sweetness that can easily replace table sugar. Date paste and date syrup make ideal replacements for refined sugar in various food formulations, such as soft drinks, energy bars, baked goods and confections. In fact, date products in foods like bread and yogurt improve the taste and texture.

HOW DATES GROW
Date palms take 7 to 10 years to produce viable yields for commercial harvest. Mature date palms can produce 150 to 300 pounds of dates each
season. Dates grow in strands. To get the best fruit, we thin out more than half of the young fruit from each strand so the remaining dates can grow
large. When these dates are nearly ripe, we cover the fruit bunches with bags to protect them from weather, birds and insects. When it’s time to
harvest the fruits, we untie the bags and collect the strands. Finally, the fruits are washed, separated and packaged or processed.
