Dried figs

Dried figs


Native to Asia Minor, figs were one of the first fruits cultivated and enjoyed as a staple food in the Mediterranean basin. The Greeks claimed that their goddess Demeter first introduced the fig to humanity, while the Romans believed that it was their god Bacchus who blessed mortals with this edible fruit. Although the Romans are credited with bringing the fig to England, the trees were not officially cultivated until the early 16th century. In India, the white fig is considered highly nutritious. While figs are not available year-round, dried or dehydrated ones (popularly known as anjeer in India) are. Not only is dried fig tasty to eat, but it also offers numerous health benefits.

properties: Fruit rich in soluble fibre, which contributes to the health of the digestive system, relieves constipation and promotes heart health.

Dried figs contain nearly 7-10 grams less sugar than fresh figs, making them a great choice for those monitoring their sugar intake.

Additionally, figs are an important source of minerals, including iron, magnesium and calcium, which are essential for bone and nervous system health. The zinc in figs contributes to a healthy immune system and can help keep skin clear by fighting inflammation.
