Are there types of dates that are suitable for diabetics?
A large number of people, especially during the blessed month of Ramadan, seek to obtain suitable dates for diabetics after rumours of the existence of some types with a low level of sugar. However, the Food and Drug Authority denied the validity of this information.
It emphasized that there are no suitable dates for diabetics or evidence that proves that talk, explaining that all dates contain high levels of sugar, each depending on their variety and stages of maturity.
The authorities also recommended that diabetics should not eat large amounts of dates and must consult specialists in order to determine the proper daily consumption.
