Date syrup naturally fights pathogenic bacterial infections
Hajer Taleb, a PhD student from the Cardiff Metropolitan University in the UK, researched the antibacterial effects of date syrup. She found that date syrup had a powerful antioxidant and antibacterial effect. When date syrup was mixed with a wide range of bacterial cultures such as the illness-causing Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli, Enterococcus spp. and Pseudomonas aeruginosa, it inhibited their growth in about six hours.
