HOW TO USE DATE CARAMEL

Date caramel is an essential part of a sugar-free diet. Dates are powerful healthy sweeteners and this easy caramel can be added to anything for extra sweetness.

HEALTH BENEFITS OF DATES:

Date caramel is made with Medjool dates, also known as the diamond of dates. They are easily digested and an excellent source of fibre. Dates are also rich in B vitamins, copper, potassium, manganese, magnesium, iron, phosphorus, zinc, and selenium. Although fairly high in glucose or fructose, dates contain a special kind of soluble fibre called beta-D-glucan which helps control blood sugar. In addition, they are high in antioxidant and anti-cancer compounds.
