ORGANIC DATES, Deglet, pitted
Botanical Name: Phoenix dactylifera
Ingredients: Organic whole, pitted Deglet dates
Origin: harvested in Algeria/Tunisia & processed in the USA
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.

Next time Majool
These are not very flavourful or soft. I will purchase the majool dates next time and hope they are more like the sweet dates I am used to.
Good dates, not too sweet
I am used to dates being very very sweet and found these to be less so. I personally like them to be quite sweet so I didn't enjoy these as much as I usually enjoy dates. Organic Matters is an amazing company though, and these are a great price. I'm going to try the medjool next to see how they differ
