- Often referred to as 'the Queen of all dates', our raw pitted deglet noor dates from Ceres Organics have a delectable soft caramel flavour. Known as deglet noor (dates of light) because of their translucence, they are firm textured with a medium sweetness and a balanced sugar level.
Our dates are sourced from the best organic farms in Tunisia and grown under optimum conditions. Carefully hand selected at the peak of ripeness then hand pitted, this ensures that they are of the highest quality. Full of dietary fibre and with no preservatives or added sulphites, these little treats make for the perfect snack.
Available in 250g packs, 5kg bulk (diced) and 9kg bulk for the avid bakers amongst.
- These chewy gems form the basis of many of our raw desserts, providing delicious natural caramel-tasting sweetness.
You can also eat them straight from the pack as a snack. Or our favourite - split in half, fill with nut butter, sprinkle with desiccated coconut and put in the freezer for a delicious chewy treat!

- "My favourite date for using in the bases of all my raw cheesecakes, tarts, desserts and many bars and snack balls. It has a modest sweetness and mild caramel flavour, and works as a great binder as well. They're also a really affordable option as compared to medjool dates , which I save for the feature part of dishes!"
