If heat treatment is applied, will the beneficial nutrients in its content not be damaged?

Look up HPP -High-Pressure Processing - no heat required

Are there any you recommend, specifically an agent thay doesnt have scent or flavor?

Does date syrup not already go through a thermal process when it is made?

@dilaragm,
if you are implying traditional methods of preparing date syrup using gravity or pressure to obtain syrup,from the fruit then it has high microbial count mostly osmotolerant microbes that can promote fermentation.
Pasteurization won’t inactivate its nutrients and it will remain nutritious to consumers…
