Sugar is no joke when it comes to your health, how your body feels, and your mood throughout the day. We have got you covered with quick and easy visuals to show how you can make the best sweet snacking choices for your body and mind.
Know the Difference
Natural vs Processed Sugar
Natural: Medjool dates are a fresh, whole fruit harvested from date palms. Just like apples, their sugar and sweetness is all-natural.
Processed: The majority of processed foods have added sugars. These sugars include brown rice syrup, corn syrup, or cane syrup. No matter the type, they don’t add nutritional value to food.
When choosing foods that contain any type of sugar, the most important question to ask is: does this have the nutrients my body needs?
While Medjool dates are high in natural sugars, they are low on the glycemic index thanks to a balanced amount of soluble fiber.
Spikes & Crashes
When you consume foods high in added or processed sugars, a slow glucose release does not occur. Processed sugars are immediately absorbed into your bloodstream—causing unpleasant sugar spikes and energy crashes.
Energy that Lasts
Complex carbohydrates are a source of dietary fiber. Complex carbs found in Medjool dates are digested at a slower rate. This releases energy to the body over a longer period of time, sustaining energy levels.
