t’s good to eat dried dates. But raw dates or the little fresh yellow fruits have a host of health benefits too!
Dried dates are fairly common but have you ever eaten fresh dates? They have a different taste and have less calories than dried dates. Known as the boosters of fertility, immunity and sensitivity, these little fruits are worthy of their weight in gold,
Dates have a long shelf life, and many varieties, including the common deglet noor, are often sold dried and processed. The dried fruit is more than 50 percent sugar by weight and contains about 2 percent each of protein, fat, and mineral matter. Other types of dates, such as the medjool, are eaten as fresh produce and gradually shrink and wrinkle as they age.
Color and taste: half-ripe; soften, light brown
Content: some sucrose reverts to reducing sugar which increases prominence.
Soft date varieties can be very juicy in the Rutab stage, which is called “wet” in North America. Dates can be harvested like this, but are too delicate and need to be handled very carefully.
