Dates have the innate caramel-like flavor and sweetness. Could this syrup replicate the same flavor? If yes, how well? For baking purposes, everyday use, is the flavor of this syrup such that it would pair well across items?

2. Consistency

How was the consistency of this date syrup? Can this be directly mixed into a warm beverage or must the syrup be heated before use?

3. Other Parameters

The ingredients, macronutrients, price, packaging, and shelf life were recorded. 

Urban Platter Arabian Date Syrup  – Detailed Review

Price + Packaging

The date syrup is offered in a premium-looking squeezy PET bottle. It has a black lid and mentions ‘Arabian Date Syrup’ in an Egyptian-style font. This holds 500 grams of product and is priced at Rs 300/- with a shelf life of 18 months. 

Main Ingredients

This is made using just one ingredient- dates. 

It also states that this may contain wheat, soya, and nuts. 

We’d appreciate if the brand mentioned the type or quality of dates they use. 

With a 10-gram serving size, one bottle holds 50 servings. One serving offers 40 Kcal with 10 grams of carbohydrates, almost no protein, no fat, or sodium. This contains no added sugars. 

On the other hand, 10 grams of table sugar offers the same amount of calories WITHOUT any of the micronutrients. 

Date syrup has over two times the potassium, calcium, and magnesium content as compared to sugar, maple syrup, or honey. It has a praiseworthy micronutrient profile, with the same amount of calories. 

How is date syrup made?

Unlike refined sugar, date syrup is not at all processed. It is made by deseeding dates, soaking them in warm water, blending with some water, straining, and voila!

How did we test this?

We poured some in our coffee and over a stack of pancakes. This helped us gauged the consistency and versatility of flavor.

Aroma + Appearance

This had an extremely fresh, boldly sweet and caramely aroma. It was a dense, thick liquid with an espresso-like brown hue. There were no particles seen, it was smooth. 

Taste + Consistency

This date syrup had a thick but flowy consistency and mixed pretty seamlessly in our beverage. As for the stack of pancakes, it was easy to pour. Owing to the natural texture of dates, this syrup was sticky too. 

The taste and potency were remarkable. It was fresh and did not have any odd flavors. The sweetness was balanced too, not overwhelming or overpowering. We liked the caramely sweetness it lends, like you would expect from fresh dates. 

As for potency, just ½ a tablespoon is ideal for one cup of coffee.
