Date Sugar and Paste
Date sugar is made from dehydrated dates that have been ground up. It’s similar in consistency to brown sugar and can be used in many of the same settings. If you’re using date sugar, you may need less of it than the usual amount of table sugar because it’s slightly sweeter. The sugar may also contain trace amounts of some minerals. Date paste is naturally high in fiber and has a caramel sweetness and is full of potassium, iron, and B vitamins.
