Date Paste

Date paste is one of the most popular ingredients to add natural sweetness to your products as well as the many additional health benefits.

Our dates have the stones removed and are minced into a paste ready for processing, removing the time and effort needed when using whole dates.

Global Foods stock two grades of date paste ensuring we have a paste that exactly meets your needs. Both grades are manufactured in a BRC A grade facility and use the latest technology to remove date pits and fragments, ensuring you have a virtually pit free paste. We also guarantee a minimum of 11 months shelf life on all stock we deliver.
