Date bars are typically made with a high proportion of dates, which are a rich source of natural sugars and carbohydrates that can cause a rapid increase in blood glucose levels when consumed in large amounts. But fret not; here are some tips to help you optimise your date bars for sustained energy.

Optimising your date bars for sustained energy
• You may pair your date bars with mixed nuts like almonds or walnuts, nut butter like peanut or almond or mixed seeds to balance carbohydrates with healthy fats and proteins.
• You may avoid consuming date bars immediately after meals. Instead, have them as a snack between meals.
• You may consider controlling your portion size and aim to have a single portion in one meal.

Dates are rich in carbohydrates, fibre and essential nutrients that quickly boost energy. However, consuming them in large quantities can cause a sudden spike in glucose levels. It can result in feelings of lethargy and fatigue, which is counterproductive for those with fitness goals. Consuming dates in moderation as part of a balanced diet may benefit blood sugar control.
