FAQs about fresh dates
Fresh dates have a significant amount of sugar. However, they also carry plenty of nutrition. Are dates healthier than a salad of roughly the same caloric value? No. But if you're looking for a sweet treat that's not made with processed, unhealthy ingredients, you can hardly do better than a small bowl of delicious sweet dates. Dates have a low glycemic index, which means that they don't cause great fluctuations in blood sugar levels.

Dates have excellent staying power, allowing you to enjoy them fresh for months. To maintain flavor, it's suggested that you keep fresh dates at room temperature, where they can last up to three months. However, the more dried out your dates are, the longer they will last. If you want to keep your dates around for longer than that, you can put them in the refrigerator for up to a year.
If you notice your dates have a white film, don't worry. You can put the dates in the sun for a while or microwave them in a plastic bag with a few drops of water for 30 seconds. Throw dates out if they start to smell strange, have any mold, or begin to grow darker in color.
