100% Organic, Gluten Free, Vegan Date sugar lends a gentle sweetness to baked goods and packs in a fiber and mineral power punch not found in most other sweeteners. Because it is made from whole crushed dates and does retain the fiber, it does not dissolve well in hot or cold liquids. We recommend using date sugar to replace the total amount of sugar called for in a recipe. However, since date sugar is made from the whole date and contains fiber, it has a tendency to absorb liquid, therefore we recommend you try decreasing the flour called for in your recipe by 25%. What are you going to do with your date sugar? Ditch the sugar in your cookies for it. Sprinkle on your oatmeal with toasted nuts and dried cranberries. Top off your morning toast with Date Sugar, butter or coconut oil and cinnamon! Enjoy the novelty of it. Dried dates, crushed for you. For raw food enthusiasts you can't get much better than date sugar. Unlike typical refined sugar from cane or beets, date sugar is finely chopped dry dates. There's no processing whatsoever, so you get an unrefined sweetener that's uniquely suited to certain culinary applications.
