With an increasing consciousness towards health, people are shifting towards healthier choices to make food taste better and sweeter. And one such delight has been ‘dates’, which has been one of the most popular alternatives to sweeteners and refined sugar, especially for people suffering from Diabetes.
From chocolates to sweets, anything with dates seems to be the safest option, but is it actually good for Diabetics? How many dates can a Diabetic eat daily?

Since ages, dates have been one of the most consumed foods, which are naturally sweet and are packed with the goodness of healthy carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals to name a few.
Around 100 grams of dates have about 314 calories, especially the flesh of dates are sweet and high in calories. Dates like Medjool can be about twice as large as other varieties, which makes keeping a track of the portion per serving even more important as compared to other varieties of dates. According to health experts, consuming 2-3 dates per serving can be safe for people with Diabetes, but it is advised to seek medical guidance before adding anything to the diet.

Consuming dates in moderation can help Diabetics in several ways because dates are rich in fibers, antioxidants and minerals like iron, magnesium and potassium. The low glycemic index of dates makes it a good source of nutrition.

The presence of fiber in dates helps in slow absorption of sugar into the bloodstream, which prevents spike in blood sugar levels. When coupled with nuts and other healthy foods, dates provide satiety and curbs odd hunger pangs. Apart from that, the presence of antioxidants in dates helps in reducing inflammation and reduces the risk of obesity.

Lastly, the phytoestrogens present in dates have similar effects on the body like estrogen hormones, which help in proper functioning of vital organs of the body. However, a lot of research is still needed to establish the benefits of phytoestrogens in the context of insulin resistance and Diabetes.
Dates are considered safe for consumption for people suffering from Diabetes and Pre-Diabetes. However, it is advised to take dates in moderation and stick to just 1-2 dates per serving depending on the health condition. However, it is a must to seek medical guidance as to many patients doctors advise against consuming dates.

Dates are low in GI, which does not spike blood sugar, when consumed in moderation. Apart from that, combining dates with healthy foods like nuts, oats, quinoa helps in making the binging or snacking even better and healthier.
