What is the effect of using dates as sweeteners?
Although they contain a fair amount of potassium and a tiny amount of various other vitamins and minerals, once the water is evaporated, dates are almost pure sugar. This is why they are the only fruit that can be used as a sugar. In the body, they are basically sugar and therefore the enemy to health. I do not recommend using dates as sweetener.
