5 Surprising Reasons You Should Be Using Date Sugar

Sugar increases weight gain. Sugar can kill you. Does any of this sound familiar?

When you consider that the average person consumes about 100 pounds of sugar every year you can begin to understand that there’s a problem here.  Think about it - that’s two pounds of sugar every week!

So what does someone who wants to live a more healthy life do? What can you do to keep the sweetness in your life while making sensible choices to increase your enjoyment of living?

Well, one way is to introduce LIVA raw organic date sugar to your everyday routine, and here’s why:


1. It contains only one ingredient

LIVA date sugar is nothing more and nothing less than ground dehydrated organic dates.


2 . It’s a source of vitamins and minerals

This one comes hot on the heels of that news and again, it’s both simple and super. All of the natural goodness, fibre and minerals that are contained in the whole dates are present in the sugar too. Here’s the health profile of 100 g of LIVA date sugar - high levels of selenium, copper, potassium, magnesium; moderate levels of manganese, iron, phosphorous, calcium.


3. It has a low glycemic index and load

OK, so that’s all looking pretty interesting so what else can we tell you?  Now, without getting too technical about the glycemic index and glycemic load. Sweet tip #3 is contained within these simple facts:

Glycemic measures: Index = 55*; Load** = 1.3; Level*** = Low

Calories in 1 teaspoon = 11

Available carbohydrates in 1 teaspoon = 2.5g


4. You can use it in anything

You can use LIVA date sugar pretty much just like you use your regular sweetener. It has a hint of a brown sugary, caramelly flavour but it’s not overwhelming. You’ll find that it works extremely well in your baked goods and in your beverages like morning smoothies. It’s not quite so shockingly sweet as refined sugar for example so rather than using 1 teaspoon you might want to try 1 1/2.  Experiment a little and to help you along we’ve shared some outstanding recipes here.


5. It’s safe for your health

LIVA date sugar is non-GMO, kosher, gluten-free and vegan.


No wonder we think LIVA makes life a little sweeter. What do you think?
