More about Meridian Date Syrup

A richly flavoured concentrate of pure Date Syrup contains no additives or preservatives and is an excellent natural sweetener. Date syrup is popular in the East where the abundance of dates makes date syrup an obvious sweetener of choice. It is very versatile and can be used wherever molasses, treacle, syrup or sugar are traditionally used.

Serving Suggestion

Use to make flapjacks and cakes or to flavour ice cream, yoghurt or muesli. Mix in equal proportions with Meridian Tahini to make a delicious spread.

- Fri 31st Mar 2017

Nice - strong date flavour as expected

Yummy - Wed 8th Mar 2017

Normally make my own but thought I would give this a go. Certainly not disappointed

- Mon 15th Feb 2016

Heaven on top of yoghurt on top of muesli or porridge!

Superb! - Mon 5th Oct 2015

Love this as a replacement for summer. I make sugar free flapjacks with it and it's so tasty. I have also used it for sweet and sour sauce which is so tasty. So if you are trying to cut down on refined sugar in your baking, this will do the job nicely

Great - Tue 11th Aug 2015

Great natural sweetener with a lovely flavour

meridian date syrup - Fri 15th May 2015

Thick and delicious. Never had it before but great on pancakes. Just love it mixed with light Meridian Tahiti on toast.

- Tue 7th Apr 2015

Tasty! Not too sweet and has a lovely consistency!

- Tue 3rd Jun 2014

This is a really nice alternative to syrup or sugar, I used it in a fruit cake, it gave a wonderful flavour, without being overly sweet - lovely.

baking - Mon 9th Sep 2013

Nice rich tasting syrup that makes good alternative to using sugar in baking healthy bars like date and oat slices or in gingerbread

super - Sat 7th Sep 2013

This is divine, I can't get enough of it! I use this in my ginger cake recipe instead of black treacle along with light agave nectar instead of golden syrup and was blown away! I can recommend having this with swedish glace vanilla ice cream :)

- Sat 20th Oct 2012

Very reasonably priced, versatile ingredient, full of iron and minerals. But be warned- only a little is needed of this sweet syrup.

My favourite sweetener-hands down! - Tue 9th Oct 2012

My son has a food sensitivity to the beet sugar commonly added to foods. It's been an inspiration to eat healthier for our whole family, so we wanted to find a sweetener that was all natural and tasted GOOD! This was it! Meridian's Date Syrup tastes like it could be sugary pancake syrup. It is rich and mapley, with just a hint of date in its flavour. It is absolutely wonderful in baking or just to drizzle atop fruit, though I do wish it had an easier pour lid so that it wasn't so messy! Lovely product!

- Tue 25th Sep 2012

Really delicious. I use it as a sweetener as I avoid sugar, but it is VERY sweet.

- Mon 7th May 2012

Not as good as it used to be since it's now rather liquidy and diluted, good taste nonetheless, nice mixed with tahini as a spread.

Sweet but unusual - Wed 15th Feb 2012

A slightly acquired taste, but I love it on porridge and pancakes. Always good to have a sugar to alternative, although it is very sweet.

- Tue 29th Nov 2011

This is a really great and affordable syrup, great alternative to maple syrup on pancakes!

Great for chocolate cake! - Sun 2nd Oct 2011

I absolutely love using date syrup in cake making, I switched a while ago to a cheaper alternative and have only just realised why my baking doesn't taste the same! It has a rich,deep flavour that I love (not as caramel-y as dates as I remember)
Dates are apparently rich in vitamin A, iron and potassium, minerals and other goodies, although I don't know if the processing involved in turning them into syrup would reduce the levels (presumably they don't need to be heated much before pureeing as they're so soft)
Dates' sugars are fructose and dextrose (agave is also mainly fructose, I don't know enough about the different sugars and their GI to comment, if anyone else knows more feel free to add!)
I was really interested to hear about the sweetness and use in recipes from Mrs K Rumary, I shall have to get some in again and experiment! Will write again if I do, particularly if the formulation has changed, hope it's as good as I remember.
Definitely worth giving a go to add richness and depth to recipes (hmm.. wondering how it would be in chocolate mousse...)

- Wed 11th May 2011

Great for mixing with Tahini to eat with toast, or even using in cakes or as a topping. Unfortunately lately these are a bit too watery in consistency, much like Meridian's fruit spreads.

- Sun 22nd Aug 2010

I wasn't too keen on this.


Not suitable for diabetics - Wed 23rd Apr 2008

This product is marked as "sugar free" but as it is pure date syrup it will contain a high level of sugar from the fruit.
