ORGANIC DATES, Medjool, whole, large
Botanical Name: Phoenix dactylifera
Production: Dates are, by general consensus, the world’s oldest known fruit. They have been grown throughout the Middle East and North Africa for over 6,000 years, a dietary staple and incorporated into almost every meal or eaten alone. Ancient cultures referred to date palms as “the tree of life”. Traditionally, dates were used to break fasts as they have high carbohydrate and sugar contents, immediately raising blood sugars and providing instantaneous energy. Medjool dates are one of the largest dates and considered far superior to any other type of date in terms of flavor and texture.
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.
Common Use: Dates are excellent in both sweet and savory dishes. Try making your own energy balls, or in a salad with walnuts, Gorgonzola, and date pieces.
Storage: Store in a cool, dry, dark place in a well sealed container.

Hit the mark
These would be perfect if they were pitted. The kids love them and the flavour is fantastic!
These are moist, chewy, and so nutritious. As well, they work great in a number of recipes including one for bars. So glad to be able to acquire these for such a reasonable price. Thanks, OM foods
