Although dates are quite sweet, they do not raise blood sugar levels. It’s the fiber again that deserves the credit. Fiber slows down digestion and balances out the speed at which the sugar in dates reaches your bloodstream. You will not have a spike and fall when you enjoy dates, but a source of sustained energy.
That’s why, despite their sweet taste, dates are considered a low-glycemic index food, which means they have a low level on the test that measures how fast blood sugar rises after eating specific foods.
