Why aren't dates the only ingredient?
Trust us, we tried really hard to formulate Wanna Date? using only dates and spices. Turns out that, as with most fresh fruit butters & spreads, you have to lower the pH of the product using an ingredient like lemon juice or citric acid. This prevents harmful bacteria from growing (getting salmonella wouldn't be fun) and helps to make the product shelf-stable.
When we added that tiny bit of citric acid, the taste of our dates were altered. Luckily, because dates are naturally sweet, we only needed to include 2 grams of organic cane sugar in each serving to get that mind-blowing taste back. Hooray!
Note that nowadays we see so many companies just pouring sugar into their products. Some companies try to hide it with misleading labels and packaging. When it comes to Wanna Date? we believe that knowledge is power & everyone should know exactly what they are putting into their body. We're proud of the fact that we only have 2 grams of organic cane sugar in each serving! That's A-OK in our book. You can enjoy Wanna Date? and still be your healthy, amazing, super-attractive self.
Is all of that fruit sugar okay to eat?
Yes Yes Yes! Naturally occurring fruit sugar, which you’ll consume while eating dates, is not the same as refined sugar. You should limit your consumption of refined sugars; too much refined sugar (AKA eating a gallon of ice cream) can negatively impact your health. Fruits, on the other hand, contain natural sugars and you shouldn’t eat less fruit because of that. If anything, you’ll reap AMAZING health benefits by incorporating more fruit into your diet. Especially dates - they're full of beneficial vitamins, minerals, fiber, and so much more.
