We would like to make special mention to our energy dense friends, dates, and why we use dates to sweeten our products instead of processed sugar.

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.  

Dates serve as an all natural, healthier sugar substitute, especially for diabetics. As the low glycaemic index natural to dates don't cause a large blood sugar spike unlike white sugar.

Dates are packed with so many nutritional benefits! They 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.

Both organic and conventional usually have a similar taste, but when choosing the Organic variety you are sure to have a product that goes through a strict quality process and follows organic farming rules. This includes the use of only natural fertilizers, clean water, no pesticides, no herbicides and regular lab tests. 

We use only organic date paste which is 100% GMO and additive free, and delicious used many ways.
