Pitted Dates (400 grams)

360.00

A 1/4-cup serving of dried or fresh dates contains 3 grams of dietary fiber. This amount supplies 14 percent of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s recommended daily allowance of fiber for adult men and women following a 2,000-calorie diet. According to Dr. John Briffa, the bulk of a date’s fiber is the soluble fiber pectin. A high intake of foods rich in soluble fiber may help lessen your risk of diabetes and high blood cholesterol. A 2009 “Nutrition Reviews” study adds that a fiber-rich diet can also help prevent obesity, stroke, heart disease and hypertension.
