ORGANIC DATES, Deglet, pitted
Botanical Name: Phoenix dactylifera
Ingredients: Organic whole, pitted Deglet dates
Qualities: One of the most popular and versatile dried fruits, dates are an endless source of nutrients and an excellent sugar alternative. Chewy and sweet, they are packed with fiber (a ½ cup of dates is approximately 22% of daily fiber intake) and potassium, magnesium, and manganese. Traditionally, dates were used to break fasts as they have high carbohydrate and sugar contents, immediately raising blood sugars and providing instantaneous energy.
Common Use: Dates are excellent in both sweet and savory dishes. Try making your own energy balls, or a salad with walnuts, Gorgonzola, and date pieces.
Storage: Store in a cool, dry, dark place in a well sealed container.
