We maximised the benefits from Calamansi fruits by using dates as a sweetener replacer for white sugar. Dates contain high fibre which help to improve our digestion system.
Supplements of Sugar – using Dates as sweet replacer
Dates is a staple food of the Middle East and the Indus Valley for thousands of years. Dates provide a wide range of essential nutrients, and are very good source of dietary potassium. The sugar content of ripe dates is about 80%; the remainder consists of protein, fibre and trace elements including boron, cobalt, copper, fluorine, magnesium, manganese, selenium and zinc.
PALM Sugar is derived from the sap of Arenga pinnata
Palm sugar is derived from the sap of Arenga pinnata.
Arenga pinnata is widely grown in the highland area of tropical Asia, especially Southeast Asia.
It is a medium-sized palm, growing to an estimated height of 15-20 meters tall, with the trunk covered by the rough old leaf as its base.
It begins to flower after 10 – 12 years of cultivation, and will last throughout the year. The flower will grow from the highest point and successively to the lower part of the tree. After the last and lower part of the tree start to flower, it will start to die within 15 – 22 years.
