LIVA Date Sugar is a new, ethically-sourced sugar substitute made from 100% organic, dehydrated dates and designed to give you the "freedom to indulge sweetly." The company was founded by Lubaina Rakla who, while pregnant with her third child, was diagnosed with gestational diabetes and told to avoid sweets. Lubaina felt "depriving herself of sugar was... frustrating and challenging" and was inspired her to create this healthy alternative.
LIVA Date Sugar uses simple ingredients to create one of the healthiest sugar alternatives, a product recommended for those looking to reduce their sugar intake. Not only does LIVA Date Sugar contain no additives, but it's also lower in calories than many alternatives, with 15 calories and 3.6 grams of carbohydrates per 4-gram serving. In addition, each 5-gram serving of the date sugar boasts 1-gram of fiber and is infused with natural antioxidants that support a healthy system.
Consumers can purchase LIVA Date Sugar online and in select retailers and use the product for cooking, baking, or making beverages. The brand suggests a 1:1 LIVA/sugar substitution ratio.
