As you can probably tell, here at Crazy Jack we are big fans of organic dried fruit, especially dates! That is why we are shining a light on these delicious fruits and sharing our top 3 reasons why we love them.
1. They’re a good source of fibre. Dried dates are a good source of fibre containing 4g per 100g. Choosing foods with fibre makes us feel fuller, while a diet rich in fibre can help digestion and prevent constipation.
2. They’re nutritious. Dates have a good nutritional profile containing several vitamins and minerals including calcium, vitamin k and magnesium.
3. They count towards one of your five-a-day! We are recommended to eat at least five portions of a variety of fruit and vegetables a day to help lead a healthy balanced diet. The good news is that eating just 30g of dried dates counts as one portion of your five-a-day!
Our range includes soft dried dates in our Ready-to-Eat pouches, perfect for snacking, as well as Pitted Dried Dates, which are ideal for baking. Whether you reach for some soft dates for an afternoon snack or include our pitted dates in your best baking, then just make sure you go organic!
