Why Dates Are So Much Better Than Sugar

Say No To Sugar

Want to be healthier, lose weight, or fight cravings? Start by cutting sugar out of your diet, and replace it with a much more nutritious alternative: dates.

What Are Dates?

Dates are the fruit of the date palm tree. They're naturally sweet, deliciously chewy, and taste a bit like caramel. And, unlike sugar, they're actually good for you.

Why Are Dates So Healthy?

Refined white sugar is just empty calories with no nutritional value. Dates are a wholesome food instead. They have vitamins and minerals, fibres and antioxidants.

Do Dates Have Sugar?

Dates do contain fructose, aka fruit sugar. But they have a low glycemic index. Why? Because they come with tons of fibres.
