  • I got angry becauce everyone say that prophet muhamad love to eat dates but he loves eating meat too ����so it isn’t a big deal with dates

  • In islam we were taught this 1400 years ago by our prophet, science abit late but well done science ❤
    He also said “leave it overnight with milk if you wanna gain weight, but with water it does the opposite” he also said “It will boost your energy after eating 1 after finishing your fast during ramadan”

  • You are guaranteed to find certain set of people to make everything religious, even a simple video about benefits of date invokes religious passions from certain people. Weird. Really weird.

  • I make tea dates with cinnamon and ginger. Taste wonderful, I get mines at BJ’S. I’ve salads’ dates before, but not medjool dates salads is delicious

  • wow,thank you they taste realy good,,,i will be eating them more.i like them,,very tasty,,and i enjoyed your video along with the instructions youve given..��

  • Dried dates are not a healthy food. The ripe dates on the palm fronds are great. Some imbeciles infuse poison into dates by soaking them in sugar syrup.

  • I left refined sugars food & beverages and eat dates with cheese when i’m craving for sweets. I eat 30 dates/day. I feel my memory sharper and yes my vision is improved during the night.

  • I used to eat dates as a child; my mother was always making “date squares” for parties or holidays. I will buy some on my next marketing date and soak as you’ve shown. I think I can afford to have 3 dates per day… I ‘d much rather have a few dates than a banana! Thank you!

  • But our beloved prophet Muhammad told us to eat dates for odd number namely 1,35,7 etc
    However you choose 2 dates.
    Thank you so much for sharing this amazing tips about health.

  • Fresh dates are absolute fire. You can find them at select Asian and Indian marts. Think of the sweetness of a date in the texture of an apple!

  • Wat you r sharing had bn told our Prophet 1400 yrs ago. They lived mostly on dates. We r told to break our fasting with the dates to give us the boost.
    Thank you.

  • They taste so good. Natures caramel. Get them more in the uk now. They used to be hard too find. Usually only around Ramadan I’m guessing because the Muslim people break the fast with them.

  • I have been eating for past few weeks…not 2 but like 10-15 per day lol…who has the restraint to limit to 2?! It is a great snack in between meals ��

  • Hi!
    Could you please advise how many dates I can eat per day as I cut them and add the peanut butter in them and after I melt 85% cocoa chocolate and I put them in the chocolate. 1h in the fridge and voila! Lovely healthy dessert!
    But the question is are they make us get fat if we eat 4-7 a day?


  • I think the info are mistaken because there are about 60g of carbs in 100g of dates! There is no way one date contains that much sugar; I even suspect that one date weighs 60g.

  • I just had two dates. I was feeling tired after work. Now I feel rejuvenated! Dates are incredible. My energy seems to be back again.

  • Had a good chuckle on your T cubed ( Tortional-Tension-Testis) discussion, and the benefits of eating dates. Put a big grin on my face on a Friday morning. Thank-you….

  • Thank you so much for this important information. I’m training to lose weight and love the idea that I can eat dats. G-D bless you.

  • Just found these yesterday and loved them. There are more on the vine that are not ready than are ready. How long do we wait for them to ripen? I’m ready to eat them but they do leave that dry feeling on my teeth and are bit bitter.

  • Hi, Is it going to be good for skin problem? someone recommend me to eat this for skin problem but I have no idea how to eat this..
    so It’s ok to eat just like that?

  • Eating them on an empty stomach is the best. First thing in the morning will suffice or after fasting. Like them get into your belly first thing. 4 to 7 dates and a cup of joe will get you kick started.

  • The messenger Mohammad Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon him told us that this is the best of food. Dates are very rich of healthy sugars, vitamines, energy,… they cure a lot of diseases. One date called the Ajwa date grows only in Saudi Arabia and especially Mecca from where I know and it protects you against every disease you can imagine if you eat 7 of them at the beginning of the day. Compared with the holy zamzam water (water from the zamzam source in Mecca) gives you a healthy and protected body. Zamzam is the blessed water that contains very good minerals and it’s miraculous.

  • Not good idea to present dates as poop. Or not so great looking ways to eat it like with lettuce or cucumber. When something is good to health the job of communicators is to present them properly. Hope my humble opinions helps you. Congratulations for your work and good luck

  • Recently i have gotten into eating Medjool dates as a pre work out snack because they give me a ton of clean energy. I cannot imagine topping them with peanut butter though, it seems like it defeats the purpose and benefits of the legendary date.

  • Nice video. I love dates so much. In our backyard we have a tree or whatever it’s called and we get fresh dates on summer. Love the summer for dates not for the sun ☀️ n Saudi Arabia lol

  • Hey everyone! I just wanted to correct myself!
    In the video I said dates have more protein per calorie than many other fruits, but what I meant to say was PER GRAM!
    Sorry for the confusion!

  • 45 years old and from Denmark. I had never tasted a date before watching several of your videos. Bought a box today and just had 4 of them. Yum yum:) They really are candy.

  • We usually have dates with Arabic coffee in Saudi Arabia, and you can also add Tahini or fresh cream, it balances the sweetness of dates very well.

  • Yes two dates per day will be awesome. But not the one that decrease cholesterol, but the one that increase dopamine and oxytocin.

  • Thanks for another great video catching up on the amazing food series while in lockdown (we’re in the UK). Do you know anything about date syrup? Was looking for date sugar just to give it a go and found date syrup instead. Maybe I could use it as a maple syrup substitute…

  • Mmmm omg thank you for this awesome video. I just bought some medjool dates and when you combined the date with the peanut butter i instantly tried it and oomg it was sooo good!! Thank u

  • Great video on dates, but you don’t have to peel them. Just rinse with hot water. The skin has a lot nutritional value and should be consumed.

  • I ate my first dates while watching this video. And I tried the peanut butter way and the cashew nut way. And oh yea! I’m a new fan!! Thanks for the video.

  • Would it be safe and healthy to eat a handful a day to gain weight, I’m very slim with fast metabolism, and really want to gain weight healthily?

  • Thanks for a great video. I love dates and eat them every day. I like to blend them up in my oat milk and use them for a sweetener in my porridge (oatmeal). Keep up your great work.

  • I make a date syrup just blended dates and spring water I’ve replaced all other sweeteners. Easily switch I don’t miss sugar at all.

  • Blend dates, buckwheat flour/oat flour, nut butter, cocoa powder and chocolate protein powder and voilà, you’ve got yourself some delicious and nutritious brownie bites.

  • In Saudi Arabia dates are one of the cheapest fruit with different kinds and ages and with incredible quality and great taste. They just grow around the streets! Amazing

  • My candida is almost gone, finally, and I eat dates and figs! I prefer dates though, they are soooo delicious! I eat them in the evening while drinking ginger honey tea, yum. I’m not afraid of natural sugars, and my body is healing!

  • They are delicious! For a person who has a sweet tooth, they are the (best) healthiest choice. They are very expensive in my country, if you can find them ��… I NEED DAAAAAAAAAAAAAATES!!!!

  • It doesn’t make sense, diabetes are caused by fructose and dates are fructose rich food.
    The study shows only the GI on diabetics people but only glucose rises blood sugar, the fructose goes directly to the liver so the blood sugar is not affected. But when your liver has plenty of sugar in it, it stores all the excess of sugar into fat, which leads to fat liver disease then insulin resistance then type 2 diabetes.
    So, are dates healthy? Absolutely!
    Are dates good for diabetics? Hell No!

  • China Ranch is about 60 minutes outside Las Vegas over the California line. They grow organic and we go every year for our dates. I can get you some and send to you if you like. We generally go in Nov/December!

  • Dates with peanuts butter wow sugar over sugar, unless peanuts butter without sugar, I am from middle east and we have a quite good info about dates…daily not more than 2 or 3 if more… then have it with black tea!!

  • Thanks for all your great videos Derrick, you have encouraged me to stay the course seeing I’m new to this vegan stuff. (following my big sister) Thanks for all you’re information and fun facts, I’ve learned so much and I love the humor in your videos.������

  • Hello, my son just bought some yellow grapes today plus custard apple yummy,plus others!! I tryed the yellow dates, yes dry but seems to have a lovely nutty flavour, I think I could get used to eating them,,thankyou for the video, now I know that they can be eaten this way,, as some fruits are toxic if not ripe, thankyou again������������������������

  • I’m in Palm springs and only been to the date farm once!!!! I totally gotta go back soon. I had a horrible diet 5 years ago so I’m pretty sure my new experience will be positive. I always get deglet noor from my market

  • Question! When Dates start to crystallize are they still fine to eat/use? I have dates but tend to use them very slowly and they almost always get covered in sugar crystals before they are used up

  • I enjoy your videos so much!! When i found medjool dates at Costco i bought them right away. They are sooooooooo delicious and soft!! Now i am rewatching this video for more of your fun facts and information!!! More videos like this pleeeeeease!!

  • You guys are realising the benefits of dates now. Muslims new about this for 1400 years ago until now. In the Prophet Muhammed PBUH time people use to live off dates through out the day.
    Muslims who are diabetic eat them and also to open our fast with.
    I normally have 3 before I go to the gym.

  • I love dates! Could eat them all day long lol. Unfortunately I live in Ireland and we don’t have the climate to grow them here and what is available in stores is very limited.

  • Thank you for indicating that the dates should be placed in hot water for 5 minutes, so that the skins are removed. I have only begun including two per day, a few days ago, and another YouTube video sang the benefits of this fruit, neglecting to say how concerns should address the skins, due to handling. This is, of course, different from the North American habit of simply washing off apples, for example, and eating them. Great video. Many, many thanks and best wishes! Cheers!:)

  • Thank you this was wonderful I bought a box of dates the smaller ones I’m not sure if the name of them. The people are from iraq that sell them in their small store with lamb Etc. He told me also that he drinks his tea and has a few dates in the morning and I’ve noticed it’s really helped me a lot my energy and I feel so much better. Thank you again absolutely love this video and you are so pretty!

  • in Palm Springs CA area they make banana date shakes with milk and/or vanilla ice cream with a sprinkle of nutmeg.

    such a delicious combination of flavors.

  • I think peeling dates is overkill. Lots of nutrients are lost if you remove the skin. If you are concerned with the skin being contaminated you should wash the dates.

  • You Can Never Learn To Much When It Comes To Organic Super Foods That Are Good For The Body So Think Outside The Box On Super Foods. Food For Your Thoughts

  • Thank you for this video, it was very useful for me. I eat dates everyday, They are very caloric that is why I consume them only in the morning. The dates have also unseen benefits on the body, like boosting the level of happiness (and evil eye protection (religious statements)).

  • I rinsed them in the boiling hot water but it was hard to peel, only some of the peel came off, I wonder if there are nutrients and fiber in the peel? I appreciate her knowledge glad I rinsed them!

  • I come from an Italian family and when I was a child my Aunt Lucy would make us a special treat of pitted dates stuffed with peanut butter then rolled in sugar. She would arrange them in a round tin and they looked so elegant!! I eat a couple of plain dates nearly every day!!

  • Wow! I’m so glad I watched this presentation. I didn’t know about peeling thedates. The explanation makes every bit of sense to me. CMJ

  • Thank you so much for the info, They are my favorite also. Like some one mentioned here as, Re rinsing after peeling is what i was thinking too! Thank you both.

  • I mix dates and prunes and put in my blend tec and chop them up and then i put in boiling water til it get the consistency of jam….

  • I never knew about these till watching ur video yesterday. I went and bought some today and made Ur Granola recipe. Thanks! I love them

  • I wash dry fruits in cup where I put them in hot water with baking soda, shake. Leave for 5 min. And I don’t peel dates. I think there skin is healthy. I am only curious, why dry fruits contain so much carbohydrates?! Thank you.

  • I’ve always thought that the skins on most fruits, ok not all, hold most of the gudstuff, I have three dates every day with my breakfast I rinse them under the tap with cold water take the pips out and put them in my nutribullet with the rest of my goodies I’ve been doing this for the last three years never had any problems,
    Also I think you should have mentioned the ones that you should not eat the jet black ones that have gone bad

  • Dear Maam, My friend grows these Barhi dates near Hyderabad, India. It grows well but since it is a new crop the locals are not buying much and there is a bit of marketing problem here for these kharak stage dates. He also says that they get spoilt within 3-4 days of harvesting them. He doesn’t know how to process them further. Can you tell how to do value-addition or process them further. Is it possible to process these kharak dates into the ripe dates which have a shelf life of 6 months to a year. Can you provide me any web-resources on this value-addition. Are you from Gujarat? Namaskar & Good wishes to you.

  • enjoyed watching, I appreciate the information on removing the skins, as I was not aware best to do so. Love dates, but not always looking for when shopping, so the information on the nutritional benefits is also appreciative. thank you

  • Oh my lord I been eating them w skin and not washed,am new at this did not no. I love them. 1 think I did not understand r there fattening? Plus I have high blood pressure over 15 yrs,and 4 yes now ostioporosi in spine and hips ������ neglected from Dr���������������������� my hair is gon very very thin it show the scalp I suffer from anxiety bad and bad temper. I suffer in silence because Dr all want do give u antidepressant. Sad.

  • Tatyana. Very good information. I have never thought to peel them.I can see why now thanks to your video. Good video.Once again.Thank you. Greetings to you. Like 283.

  • I don’t understand why you would talk about the impurities of the water but then dip them in the same water after you have removed skin??

  • Wow being eating them all my life, 70 years old and still running and working out 6 days a week, amazing information to share with my love ones,��������

  • Surely the skin is insoluble fibre and thus good for roughage. Are dates sticky when picked. I thought they would be picked when ripe then dried in the sun when they become wrinkled. Thus not much handling. Maybe a rinse in hot water to removed dust and maybe pesticides. I’ve found a shop that sells the really big and juicy ones and l have about two each day. A much healthier snack than say health bars.

  • I like datez��
    I can’t eat juss two.. ����
    I can eat a kilo of it…
    I waz eating wid milk last year during Ramdan… I wanna gain weight… Foo sure I’m gonna take it again in ma diet… ����

  • you need to remove the skin IF the dates are old and have been stored for n many years. That is when it looses its bond with the fruit. otherwise, most dates have skin that is strongly adhered to the fruit n does not peel. It then becomes very easy to wash them as you consume them.

  • thanks for the beneficial info on dates but when you said that their skin could be contaminated by bacterias or viruses, I believe washing them would clean them, plus the way you are cleaning them would not be the proper way because you touch the skin and then the peeled dates and then the dirty water that you used to clean them in.

  • Hello Beautiful Lady xx
    Thankyou for your reccomenations and information on Dates.
    I am going to eat them every day now in the hope that I might get to be as Beautiful as you are one
    day..lol I know I have high hopes there lol…
    To all the people whining put a sock in your big mouths and be greatful that this Lady wants to help us all by sharing her videos…Hugs Beautiful Lady and thankyou from us all xxx

  • I have never had Dates before. Are they sweet like prunes because they look almost like them? Also, do they have pits to spit out or can you just eat the whole thing? After you use the boiling water to peel, do you have to eat them hot or can you put them in the refrigerator and eat cold? And last, are these a year round fruit or seasonal?

  • Dates are always in my monthly budget i eat 3 dates in a day and sometimes a make date juice mixed with milk,banana and honey try it and you’ll see the impact am 33 but i look like am 20

  • Thank you and many blessings to you for great information, first time eating raw dates and they are crunchy and delicious. I think the puckering feeling in the mouth and teeth is alum, also found in unripe persimmons. The dates remind me of a honey crisp apple.

  • If you have a Sweet Tooth eat 2 Dates. They do the trick. They are better for your health than any candy, ice cream or donuts. ������

  • Awesome content, Looking forward to seeing more videos! Have you ever checked smzeus[.]com?? It’s the best way to grow your channel!!

  • Nice video! Now I want some dates, I’ve never had them either…
    You should watch Pamela Pace’s video ” why you shouldn’t start a date palm from seed”…I guess you have a good chance of your seeds being male and then you’ll have pretty date palms, but they won’t produce any dates. She talked about some other good stuff also. ♥️
