About This Brand

Since 1968, NOW Foods has prided itself on being a leading producer of natural products, paving the way for the healthy foods and natural supplements in the mainstream market. Approximately half a century ago, entrepreneur Elwood Richard started a small chain of health food stores, known as Health House, in the Chicagoland area. With his scientific background evoking his passion for health foods and nutritional supplements, it laid the early foundation for his company. When the high cost of his stores’ health food products deterred business, he started his own natural products manufacturing company to supply his stores, which afforded him complete control over product cost and quality. From this moment NOW Foods was born. Today NOW is still owned by the Richard family and has grown to become one of the most identifiable brands, delivering a widespread line of wholesome and natural products. NOW has always remained true to Elwood’s original vision—to meet consumer need for...

Reviews For Date Sugar

Based on 10 Reviews

was thrilled to find this

Yes, it's pricey, but I'm thrilled to have date "sugar" available as it is not a refined sugar, but simply a whole food, whole dates that have been dried and then pulverized into a powdery "sugar." I'm avoiding refined sugars all together right now and I've made at least two different sweet treats using this and look forward to inventing more!

Alternatives to Regular Cane Sugar

One the Best Natural Replacements to Refined Cane Sugar is Date Sugar made with dried dates. Very Natural and made with real dates. Less sugar content as Cane Sugar. One of the best ways to go. Also, try date paste for spreads and etc.

- Grace

Very tasty

This is a healthful substitute for brown sugar and is a lower carb and tasty sweetener for cereal and works fine for baking. However, it does not dissolve, so don't bother trying it in drinks.

Date Sugar uses

Although this is a great substitute for sugar, it is not meant to be used in drinks as it does not desolve. Use in your cereals, baking etc... excellent fiber and nutrient values... don't think of this as "SUGAR" it is a whole food.

Date Sugar

i LOVE THIS STUFF!! I was amazed when I read it was made from very finely chopped dates! COOL! I use it in my coffee, I used it in a banana bread that I made with the non gluten pancake mix, (I LOVED THAT BREAD) I love the taste of it and even more that you can taste around it , Love the texture, and love the golden brown color. I am IN LOVE. I never want to eat white sugar (or brown sugar) again!!!!!

Not for hot beverages

This sugar doesn't dissolve in hot beverages. It may be great for baking but not for coffee or tea!

- Pam

Great sugar replacement

It's dusty because it's real ground dates, so I seem to create a small cloud anytime I measure out a portion to use, but that's the only drawback. It's perfect for baked goods. I've used it in breads, cookies, fruit crisps, and cakes with wonderful results.

- Rebecca

How Do I use it?

I like this when baking-it adds a unique flavor. I'm still a little confused how to use it otherwise since it's not a dissolvable sugar. Made some really good zucchini bread though!

Muffin Heaven

This sweetener is unique in the way that it's actually chopped up dates. It is fantastic in muffins. I really like this sweetener in my pancakes too since it's natural and offers the right amount of sweet.

Dropping a teaspoon or two of raw sugar into a morning cup of coffee is a healthier move than taking a spoonful of white sugar, right? Well, not exactly. Okay, coconut sugar then. Try again.
