I am cleaning out my kitchen and ran across a container of date sugar.  Is it paleo or should I get rid of it?

Thanks!

It depends on your objective. Date sugar is just ground up dates, and I'd lump it in with honey as a natural sweetener. If you're following the Cordain Paleo Diet, ad libitum fruit eating is OK, though I'd take it easy on eating a lot of date sugar because of the high calorie density. However if you're doing one of the low carb variants of Paleo get rid of it.

I'd get rid of any processed sugar. Date sugar is essentlally the same as table sugar (derived from sugar cane) and will be harder for your body to handle. Stick to whole foods.
