Date sugar is a brown, coarse sweet powder made from dried, ground dates.
The main element in it is sucrose. Fresh dates are 55% sucrose; this percentage increases as the dates are dried and the moisture leaves them.
Some manufacturers may add extract of barley malt syrup.
For date sugar made from palm tree sap, see Jaggery.
Date Sugar does not dissolve in liquid, so don’t use in tea, coffee, beverages, etc — anywhere you would want your sweetener to dissolve.
