Date Lady™ Organic Date Syrup is now available in Whole Foods markets in the Northern California and Pacific Northwest regions through Renaissance Specialty Foods of South San Francisco and Crown Pacific Fine Foods of Kent, Wash., respectively.
Date Lady Date Syrup as well as the newly introduced Caramel Sauce are USDA Organic and kosher certified, and are naturally sweetened by the dates themselves, said Colleen Sundlie, company founder. With more potassium per ounce than bananas, date syrup is increasingly finding favor with U.S. consumers as a whole food and an alternative sweetener both on the table as a condiment as well as for cooking and baking, Sundlie said. It also has become more sought after as an ingredient by manufacturers interested in finding substitutes for sweeteners that consumers are tending to avoid, she added.
Date Lady Date Syrup contains only 100 percent organic dates, and Date Lady Caramel Sauce contains only three ingredients with no added sweeteners. The sweetness comes from the dates themselves, Sundlie said. The Date Syrup and Caramel Sauce are packaged in 12-ounce jars with suggested retail prices of $7.99 and $8.99 respectively. Whole organic dates are available in a resealable 8-ounce pouch with a suggested retail price of $6.99.
