Medjool dates are the sought-after variety of dates because they are juicier, sweeter, and more tender than other varieties. The fresh fruit is harvested after ripening and drying on the palm tree. They have a caramel-like flavor and can be used in many different types of recipes.
Dates stand out for their nutritional components, including fiber, B vitamins, and minerals such as potassium, magnesium, and phosphorus. In addition, due to their caloric content, they are an excellent source of energy and a suitable alternative to refined sugars. They assist in the digestive process and are an excellent source of antioxidants, such as carotenoids, flavonoids, and phenolic compounds.
Enjoy them before or after training or as a quick and healthy snack during sporting activities.
