The Brix value of date syrup is 74° to 77°

The Brix value tells us how much dissolved sugars are in a liquid. The Brix value is stated in degrees Brix. One degree Brix means that 100 grams of liquid contains 1 gram of sugar.
So: the higher the Brix value, the sweeter the solution. The higher the Brix value, the sweeter and tastier the date syrup is. A higher Brix value generally indicates a better quality.

Thick date syrup contains a Brix value of no less than 74° to 77°. Honey has a Brix value of between 70° and 88°. The runnier or lighter the color of the date syrup, the lower the sweetness. Other syrups contain less and even significantly less sweet power.
