Our date paste is made from the Phoenix Dactylifera variety of dates and has a deliciously sweet, caramel flavour. Dates are low in fat, high in fibre and a good source of minerals like magnesium, iron and calcium. Our date paste is 100% dates with no added sweeteners, sugars or any other added nasties. Dates are said to cause less significant glucose spikes in the blood when compared to cane sugar. As always, we advise our customers to do their own research into the health benefits of our products.
Our date paste makes baking or bar making so much simpler – there’s no need to remove the pit, get out the blender or soak dates in water – simply add the paste to recipes!
**Please note the product’s packaging may vary from what is pictured above. Please also note a very small amount of pit may be present in the paste. **
