Date Sugar
Also gaining popularity in the sweetener lineup is date sugar. Date sugar isn't an extract. It's simply dried dates ground into a fine powder, so it has the nutrients of whole dates, including potassium, calcium, and antioxidants.5 The amount of fiber in a teaspoon of date sugar, however, is negligible.25 In a 2009 study of 12 different sweeteners, date sugar had the highest antioxidant content, 500 to 600 times more than table sugar.26 The main drawback to this sweetener is that it doesn't melt, so its uses are somewhat limited.26 Replacing brown sugar in recipes, such as banana bread and bar cookies,5 or sprinkling some on yogurt or fruit are suggested uses for this very sweet product.
