No other dried fruit fulfils the desire for sweetness such as a handful of dried figs. They are known to be one of the first cultivated fruits. Throughout thousands of years the people from West Asia and the Mediterranean have been enjoying their rich aroma and positive effects on the health. They knew the fig as a “fruit of the gods”. More than 60% from the water content of the fig is lost during the drying process. This makes the dried figs a much more concentrated source of calories, nutrients and fibres than the fresh figs. Most of the calories come from basic, quickly digested sugars. Their quantity should not worry you, however, because these sugars are consumed together with all of the fibres in the fruit, which slower the process of sugar releasing in the blood. The soluble fibres help for faster satiety and maintain the healthy levels of sugar and cholesterol in the blood, while the insoluble fibres improve and regulate the digestion. The figs are among the richest sources of mineral compounds. They contain manganese, magnesium, potassium, calcium, vitamin A, vitamin B and vitamin K, and all of them are in optimal quantities for the human needs. The large amount of potassium maintains the balance of fluids and electrolytes in the body – a property of great importance for the normal functioning of the nerves and the heart, whereas the calcium is necessary for strong and healthy bones and tendons. The dried figs are a rich source of the essential fatty acids Omega 3 and Omega 6. It is proven that they lower the levels of LDL, i.e. the “bad” cholesterol and decrease the risk of coronary heart disease. The figs are also rich in antioxidants, especially polyphenols and flavonoids, which protect the cells from damaging, caused by the free radicals.
And, as a bonus to all these healthy properties, the dried figs are so delicious that you would like to eat more and more from them. As a replacement of a snack or dessert they are just incomparable. Cut into small pieces, they are the perfect addition to almost each pastry – scones, biscuits and cakes. They are wonderful to be added to your oatmeal, granola, yoghurt and curd or sprinkled over an ice cream. Order now from VM Organic and enjoy the sweetness of these delicious dried fruit.
