I noticed that many primal recipes contain dates, often in high proportion. I looked them up in nutritiondata.com, however, and they seem to offer very little benefit. They are very high carb, high sugar (about 50/50 fructose:glucose, just like table sugar), low fiber, high glycemic, devoid of fat and protein, and low in vitamins and minerals. Yet they seem to be an integral part of soooo many PB recipes. Am I missing something here?? Why are they so popular among PB eaters? They seem like a half step away from sugar, with very little benefit!
