Stating that dates with glucose syrup are generally very sticky, shiny and small, Uzm. Dr. Serhat Koran said, “Glucose syrup can raise blood sugar too much, it can disrupt cardiovascular health.
There are also studies showing that he did pancreatic cancer. If we have cancer in our body, it feeds cancer cells. In this sense, it is necessary to be very careful when buying dates, ”he said.
Expressing that dates regulate blood sugar and reduce the feeling of hunger, Koran said, “It also energizes our bodies. However, it also reduces the feeling of thirst. There is a high amount of potassium in the date.
Potassium is also very beneficial for both cardiovascular health and our blood pressure. It contains substances that we call selenium and beta glucan. These substances also have an anti-carcinogenic effect. Apart from that, it also contains high levels of fluorine. Fluorine is also very beneficial for tooth and bone health. There are also studies showing that it strengthens the antioxidant and immune system. In this sense, palm is a fruit that should not be missing from the table ”.
Exp. Dr. Koran said, “Excessive consumption can cause diarrhea and allergic reactions. Because of its high sugar content, it can raise blood sugar. In this sense, you can consume dates 3 times a day, 1 for iftar and 2 for sahur ”.
Reminding that dates are put on the market by dipping in glucose syrup, Koran said, “Dates made in Arab countries are bigger and sweeter. There are also dates grown in the African region. These are getting smaller and tasteless. To sweeten these dates and make them look brighter, they rub glucose syrup on them. As such, the date hurts instead of benefit. Glucose syrup can raise blood sugar too much and can disrupt cardiovascular health. There are also studies showing that he did pancreatic cancer. If we have cancer in our body, it feeds cancer cells. In this sense, it is necessary to be very careful when buying dates, ”he said.
Stating that the prices of dates with glucose syrup are also kept very cheap, Koran said, “It is also necessary to avoid buying very cheap dates. It is useful to check whether there is glucose syrup in the contents of the packed dates. Glucose syrup consumes more energy than necessary until our intestines digest.
Thus, the energy we get from dates is not beneficial. “The sugar in real dates stabilizes our blood sugar until iftar because it dissolves slowly in the body.”
