Date Sugar Date sugar is made from dehydrated, ground dates, so it retains the nutritional benefits of dates, and is not as processed as say, agave nectar or maple syrup. It looks and tastes like brown sugar, but slightly sweeter. The glycemic index on date sugar is in the moderate range, but since it isn't a refined or processed like sugar, most people consider it a healthier option. Also, be careful what recipes you use date sugar in -- it does not dissolve.
Form: Rough granules Uses: Sweeten smoothies and hearty baked goods (breads, muffins, and brownies, not lighter cake). Sprinkle on top of oatmeal or cinnamon toast. The recommended substitution is 2/3 cup of date sugar to 1 cup white sugar. Glycemic Index: 68
