Aunt Patty’s® Date Sugar is a tasty way to sweeten your food naturally. It’s made entirely from certified organic dates that have been dehydrated and finely ground. There’s nothing else in it but pure dried fruit –no artificial colors, flavors, additives, or preservatives.
Dates are high in fiber (both soluble and insoluble) and antioxidants, and are an excellent source of potassium. But don’t expect to get a significant dose of these nutrients in a one-teaspoon serving or by dusting it lightly over your food.
The 11-oz. shaker bottle makes the date sugar much easier to sprinkle on an individual bowl of oatmeal or yogurt. But to sweeten your baked goodies, you can buy it by the pound. Be sure to refrigerate after opening.
Date sugar has a texture similar to brown sugar and has a rich, caramel-like flavor. You can use it in:
- Nonfat plain yogurt
- Crumb toppings
- Recipes that call for brown sugar (substitute cup for cup)
- Hot cereal
- Muffins and cookies
NOTE: Date sugar doesn’t dissolve well in coffee.
