Information about some of the nutritional and medicinal benefits of dates...
In the field of nutrition, concepts are often sold in black and white terms, such as: “Sugar is bad for you” and “Vegetables are good for you”. On the face of it, this may seem reasonable enough. But, upon closer inspection it becomes evident that most foods are much more complex than that. For instance, let’s consider date fruits. They’re obviously very sweet and high in naturally occurring sugar. And yet, they possess some medicinal properties that defy expectations.
K2C, I am weird, but I love hitting ethnic grocery stores. Sometimes the middle east grocery places have fresh dates. they are actually wonderful and not that sweet. It is when they are dried the sugar concentrates. You should really try some.
