Dates, the fruits of the date palm tree, are a major staple food in arid areas of North Africa and the Middle East, and the date crop plays a central role in the economy and social life of these regions. Iran is one of the main producers of date fruit and it is possible to produce foods with high nutritional values from date to replace high-sugar content food. Date molasses is one of the products obtained from dates. It has the same properties as date. Date molasses prevents anemia in people and relieves rheumatic pains. It is rich in B vitamins, iron and folic acid. You can use date molasses as a natural sweetener in some foods and desserts.
Date molasses is a very good substrate substitute for molasses (Molasses is a viscous product resulting from refining sugarcane or sugar beets into sugar.) Date molasses is consisted of more sugars than molasses, approximately similar amounts of nitrogen, and almost half the amount of potassium which is all necessary and important for baker’s yeast production.

How to Produce
Date molasses is made by heating dates in water, blending the dates, pressing the mixture through a filter to strain out pits and insoluble parts of the date, and then evaporating the water that was put in, back out. What you are left with is the nectar, which contains vitamins and minerals from the date. In the soaking tanks, equipped with stirrer and outfeed screw, the dates are re-hydrated. Depending on the required capacity, the de-soaked dates are sent either to stoning machine Super Creamer or Jumbo Creamer, guaranteeing a clean separation of stones from pulp and molasses. Before the product is filtered, pasteurizing it in the plate heat exchanger Thermo Flash. The unit is manufactured in several sizes and can be mounted on skid. The date molasses is clarified by vacuum rotating filters with Kieselguhr pre-coat. As alternative to the vacuum filter ultrafiltration can be used.
