Zahidi dates are a rare semi-dry kind of date with a nutty caramel flavor. They have distinctively oval shape with a golden brown and often baggy exterior. They are considered to be a drier date. Compared to medjools they have a lower sugar content. Not as sweet as medjools but uniquely tasty.
Storage Refrigerate upon receiving to maintain optimal quality. Refrigerated, dates can last 1-2 months. Soft dates have a shelf life of one year (if not longer) if they are frozen. When you are ready to eat them, you can simply let them thaw out and you will find that they look and taste just as when you first received them. Enjoy!
Package Includes- x1 packed box of dates (4 or 10 lbs)
NOT PITTED (They contain the seed inside)
Dates Main Benefits:
1) Alternative to empty-calorie sweets. Dates can satisfy a person's sweet tooth while also providing essential nutrients, such as vitamin B-6 and iron.
2) High in fiber. Just ¼ of a cup of dates provides 12 percent of a person's daily fiber requirement. Fiber helps a person feel fuller for longer.
3) High in potassium. Dates are high in potassium, which is an electrolyte the body needs for good heart health. Potassium also helps to build muscle and proteins in the body.
4) Great for substitutions. People can replace the sugar, chocolate chips, or candies in baking recipes with dates to ensure they are eating natural sugars instead of refined sugars.
