Dates are known as the „bread of the desert“. They are highly prized, since they are easily digested, and contain large amounts of vitamins and minerals, whilst their sugar content makes them a rapid supply of energy. Ideal for desert travellers, they are also beneficial to health-conscious Europeans. Dates have high levels of magnesium, B vitamins and fibre, all good for the intestines. In contrast, the glycaemic index is very low [1 to 2]. Dried dates have an antioxidant capacity of 3895 µmol TE (ORAC value = Oxygen Radical Absorption Capacity). Foods rich in antioxidants boost the body´s defence mechanisms, helping to balance excessive production of free radicals. The recommended daily ORAC requirement is between 5000 and 7000 .
Our organic Fairtrade date sugar is similar to sugar and a good sugar substitute. Use our date sugar in all recipes where you currently use raw sugar. Its pleasantly sweet taste makes sweet dishes really special.
Origin and production:
We source our organic Fairtrade date sugar exclusively from Tunisia. Tunisia´s difficult economic and political situation highlights the importance of producing Fairtrade products. Tourism plays an important role in the country, contributing towards extremely high water consumption. Small farming families are fighting for traditional forms of agriculture and maintaining a healthy co-existence with nature and people. Collaboration with FAIRTRADE guarantees that farmers and their families have a secure income and provides their children with future prospects.
Dates are harvested high up in the date trees, in a manner that seems daring from a European perspective. The dates dry naturally when still on the trees.
Cutting dates from the plant, sorting and pitting are all carried out manually. A pourable powder is then made out of the whole dates.
The date sugar is pressure disinfested in Austria. The combination of pressure and time ensure that the produce is absolutely free of pests.
Our organic Fairtrade date sugar is ideal for all sweet dishes, such as desserts, yoghurt and muesli mixes, and as a sugar substitute in all kinds of cakes, pastries and biscuits. It is a very exclsuive ingredient in the production of nut, fruit and power bars, in baking mixes and energy balls. Date sugar is especially popular in Oriental and Ayurvedic cuisine.
