We would like to make special mention to our energy dense friends, dates, and why we only use fresh dates in our treats.
Did you know fresh dates contain half the amount of calories and carbohydrates that dried dates do.
More importantly they are packed with many nutritional benefits!
Dates are a fantastic source of soluble and insoluble fibre and are rich in antioxidants. Trace elements including magnesium, calcium, potassium, phosphorus, iron, selenium, vitamin C & B6 are also bioavailable.
The advantage of using dates as a natural sweetener is that they contain high amounts of naturally occurring basic sugars. These sugars are easily processed by the body and used as an energy source.
