Contains folate, niacin, vitamin K, vitamin A, vitamin B6, iron, zinc, manganese, magnesium, sodium, potassium, phosphorous, calcium and copper. Good sweetener to use in smoothies instead of other sweeteners. Despite the high content of sugar, it apparently doesn’t feed pathogens because it contains nicotinic, which is necessary in controlling the growth of pathological organisms and increase the growth of friendly bacteria. Dates are very alkalizing and great for muscle building. To cancel out the sugar spike, try to always eat dates with cinnamon and some kind of green- like spinach, cilantro, parsley, etc.
