Date fruit or “dates” come from the date palm tree (Phoenix dactylifera), one of the oldest cultivated food crops. Although there are hundreds of different cultivars, the two most popular in non-date producing countries are medjool dates and deglet noor varieties.
In this video we’ll discuss more about dates and why they can be a better natural sugar option, eaten as whole fruits or used in the form of date sugar, another increasingly popular substitute for other types of sweeteners.
