Unquestionably the king of dates! These mammoth-sized Medjools are soft, juicy and extremely flavourful. They are known to be of the finest variety of dates, not just for their great quality and taste, but also for the vast health benefits they provide us.
First and foremost, they’re easily digested, allowing your body to make full use of their goodness. This includes high amounts of dietary fibre, which is known to help move waste smoothly through your colon and helps prevent LDL (bad) cholesterol absorption by binding with substances containing chemicals. Naturally sweet, these beauties also have a good iron content, as well as potassium, B vitamins (niacin, riboflavin etc), vitamins A and K, copper, magnesium and manganese to name a few. A study has also shown that the protein in dates contains roughly 23 amino acids, some of which are not present in the most popular fruits, such as oranges, apples, and bananas. Amino acids play a key role in the transport and the storage of nutrients, and have an influence on the function of organs, glands, tendons and arteries. They are furthermore essential for healing wounds and repairing tissue, especially in the muscles, bones, skin and hair as well as for the removal of all kinds of waste deposits produced in connection with the metabolism.
Its fair to say that these wonders of the plant kingdom are truly special. Comes in a resealable foil-lined pouch for added freshness and easy storage, also making them great for sharing.
The natural sweetness of these dates coupled with its chewy texture mean they are often used in the production of healthier energy bars. No need for refined sugars and artificial gelling agents, which is definitely a win! Why not try pitting, slicing and adding to your favourite salad for some sweet flavour, or alternatively use as a sugar replacement when making those homemade cakes! You can always just eat them straight out of the pack if you prefer!
