How many dates can you eat in a day and not become diabetic?

We recommend 100g or about 5 dates per day. Dates have a low glycemic index. This means they are unlikely to lead to diabetes even when eaten in high amounts. However, dates are an energy-dense food. Eating over the recommended amount could lead to unwanted health outcomes.
