    i use to drink lion date syrup with milk daily before going to bed:coffee.It does'nt do any harm to me so far.But today i have seen in one thread that we should not take Date syrup with milk as Calcium in the milk will inhibit the iron (in dates) absorption by our body.Is it true?????
    If so i will stop having that combination.:bowdown
    But please suggest me in what way i can daily consume Lion date syrup.:crazy

    thanks in advance

    :cheers

    In the commercial itself they show mixing date syrup in milk! in that case, we need to check lot of such combinations in our daily diet. :) I eat 4 dates and two dried figs daily.

    Dates themselves contain calcium and it is ok to add it to milk. i have read long back the nomads, use to sustain for long by having dates with goat milk..

    hi Sandhya,
    I donno whether u got an answer for ur question. Let me share the fact i know.
    Its said that calcium and iron shouldnot be taken together as calcium will absorb the iron. But there are quite a few exceptions where u can take both together. One is dates syrup with milk and the other one is jaggery with milk. But for both the milk should not be hot.
    For better absorption of iron, take vitamin C either with it or take it in the morning after BF.

    Take care,
    Archana
