With a mild, sweet "date" flavor and light amber color, our Non-GMO project verified date paste is used in place of other sweeteners in a variety of different recipes including baked goods and beverages.
Date paste is produced from Deglet Noor Dates that are ground and then extruded through a fine plate to make them into a medium textured paste. Dates are known to have a lower glycemic index than other types of sweeteners such as cane sugar. Dates are also very nutritious and offer a good source of dietary potassium. The sugar content of dates is approximately 80%; the remainder consists of protein, fiber, and trace elements including boron, cobalt, copper, fluorine, magnesium, selenium, and zinc.
