Middle Easterners have long consumed date syrup for its curative properties. New evidence shows that date syrup indeed has an antibacterial effect. Researchers at Cardiff Metropolitan University in Wales presented data in 2015 that showed traditionally prepared date syrup inhibited the growth of several bacteria – including Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli, Enterococcus spp and Pseudomonas aeruginosa. In side-by-side comparisons, date syrup worked even more effectively than Manuka honey, which is currently used in wound dressings.
