For natural and raw food enthusiasts you can't get much better than Date Sugar. Unlike typical refined sugar from cane or beets, Date Sugar is actually finely chopped dry dates.

NOW Real Food Date Sugar is 100% pure and is an excellent sprinkle for fresh fruits, yogurt, cereals and more. Many contemporary whole-grain and homemade bread recipes call for date sugar instead of brown sugar since it lends a unique flavor sweetness that pair well with whole grains.

Great for cooking and baking, desserts and puddings.

Posted by 5514081950035846903 on Jun 19, 2016

If you're trying to use it like sugar in you beverage then you won't like it. This specific sugar is made from dates and tastes like powdered dates but some sweetness, that coconut sugar has, however it is wonderful if you are using it for baking cookies, a tart or making a pudding. Far healthier than sugar it makes great candy bars or nut bars mixed with other ingredients like coconut and raisins. It is delicious in pie crusts, or baked apples. Nice as a topping over a dessert, tart, or pudding as well, I like it because it is alkaline and will not ferment in my body like sugar.

Nice substitute for sugar

Posted by 5179445409619604955 on May 13, 2016

I use it in cooking instead of sugar and it works well for me. This way I get the fibers and all the other good staff which comes from dates instead of empty calories from processed sugar.

Excellent substitute

Posted by Reviewer2471600 on Feb 18, 2016

This is an excellent substitute for other sweeteners when baking. I usually use honey, but date sugar is perfect when honey isn't an ideal substitute. I no longer buy most NOW foods products because of what I learned about QAI, the group that certifies their products as organic. Since no one says this date sugar is organic, I don't mind buying it from them.

Healthy but not really sugar

Posted by 4865991019844053040 on Nov 26, 2014

It is not really sweet enough to be used as a sweetener. I appreciate the fact that it's 100% dates and will use the package, however I probably will not reorder. I would use fresh dates instead.
