Date nectar is possible the newest trending grocery product for 2019. Why ? It is a vegan alternative to honey. Date syrups are 100% natural syrups entirely taken from whole dates. There is no refined sugar although that is not to be taken entirely as a positive. Most of the nutritional benefits are retained from the date save for the dietary fibre. It is a great source of phytosterols, polyphenols, various minerals and antioxidants.
The syrup is currently enticing a number of consumers on the west coast of the USA.
Try it like honey as a pouring syrup for pancakes, waffles, cereals, muesli and cereals. It is also a great alternative to sugar for baking, drizzling and cooking.
