Date-derived industries: A review of common products, manufacturing methods, and leading countries
The date fruit, a nourishing food appreciated worldwide, plays an important role in producing countries’ economic and political aspects.
Date palms provide numerous products, including date syrup, alcohol, vinegar, date powder, and sugar. This review was undertaken
to summarize information about the common date-derived products, the manufacturing methods used, and the leading countries in
the date-derived industry. Additionally, the review highlights the future challenges in developing the date industry. The difficulties that
accompanied the preparation of this review included the scarcity of modern and reliable information, especially the statistics related to
date-derived products from leading countries involved in this industry. This may be due to the incompleteness of such information or the
lack of interest in publishing them in reliable scientific sources.
