Just over 3.5% of the earth's farmland is covered by fruiting date palms which produce way over 4 million tonnes of fruit a year.
Medjool dates are actually a FRESH FRUIT. People think that dates are dried as they have wrinkly skin or they think of the ones that go in the STP.
Medjool dates are fully ripened fruit and actually hand-harvested from the date palm at height, cleaned, sorted and packaged into the box in the treetops. There’s no processing, and they’re never physically or chemically dried.
Medjool dates are an excellent source of fibre while containing no added sugar. They also hold extremely low glycemic for sustained energy.
Dates also host a variety of beneficial vitamins and minerals, most notably Potassium, Copper, Magnesium, Vitamin B6, Niacin, Calcium, Iron and Vitamin K - In fact, Medjool dates contain more potassium by weight than bananas. (Wowza)
