Why dates as sweetening?
Dates are soo good and it gives the cake all the sweetness it needs, without adding any white sugar.
Dates regulate so that we have a healthy nervous system, thanks to its rich potassium content. Researchers believe that a higher intake of potassium (about 400 mg) can reduce the risk of stroke by 40%.
I will never forget when I lived in London and every week was my fresh fruit on the local market. One day I bought a large bag of dates, and the seller said: ”You will be able to perform tonight, if you know what I mean,” and he laughed. Perhaps he is right: Dates are packed with magnesium and antioxidants – which have positive effects on sex life and reproduction. :)
