POP Nutrition: Medjool Dates – Nature’s Caramels

Since I just wrote a post and said that I absolutely missed out on the Medjool dates all this time, I am glad I am on the wagon and here are a few medjool date facts:

Fiber Rich!
Many studies show that diets low in fat and high in fiber-containing foods are associated with reduced risks of some types of cancer.

Potassium Punch!
Weight for weight, dates contain more potassium than bananas. Potassium is an essential mineral needed by your body to maintain muscle contractions, including the vital heart muscle. Dates also help make hemoglobin, the red and white blood cells.

Vitamins Galore!
Dates are loaded a variety of B-complex vitamins including thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, vitamin B-6, and pantothenic acid.

Fat/Sodium Free!
Dates are a tasty snack food that will not add any sodium to your diet. Medjool dates are also fat-free and cholesterol-free.
