Nutritional Benefits – DRIED FIGS
Today, more and more people are growing conscious about their health. However, just hitting the gym isn’t enough; you need to intake proper nutrients as well. You must be aware of the age-old proverb – Health is wealth. However, in most cases, it’s easier said than done. It calls for a lot of planning to eat right and live healthy. While a lot of people turn to health supplements and medications, they often ignore the benefits of dry figs. Loaded with nutrients, figs are purple, copper or yellow-green in color. Highly nutritious and tasty, dry figs can be used in jams, ice-creams and baked items. Although figs are generally seasonal fruits, you get them right through the year in dried form. The fruit is absolutely delicious and contain nutrients like calcium, iron, phosphorous, manganese and vitamins.
Regulated blood pressure:
Dried figs are loaded with potassium, a nutrient that helps in controlling high blood pressure. Considering the present lifestyle and excessive consumption of processed food, your body may run short of potassium. This, in turn, may result in hypertension. Since dry figs are full of potassium, it’ll help you in maintaining a regulated blood pressure level.
Effective weight loss:
Dry figs are a high source of nutritional fiber. If you are fat and considering losing some weight, fiber-rich foods are a good thing to opt for. Since figs are high in natural fiber, it’ll prove beneficial for your weight management program. It’ll help you in lowering your energy intake, while keeping you full right through the day.
Safe against breast cancer:
For women, menopause and breast cancer are two major things to deal with. Besides the psychological effects, there are countless health hazards as well. Researchers have shown that women who consume fruit fiber are at low risks of having breast cancer, in comparison to those who don’t. Dry fig is probably the best fruit in terms of natural fiber; the others being prunes, dates, apples and pears.
Long and luscious hair:
Considering the present lifestyle and eating habits, hair problems are pretty common these days. The main reason behind this is the deficiency of vital minerals and nutrients. Luscious hair and glowing skin are precious assets that define our persona as well as style quotient.
When it comes to hair problems like itchy scalp, dandruff and hair loss, nobody can negate the need of a proper diet. Since dry figs are loaded with minerals and nutrients, they help boost your hair’s health in a dramatic way.
Health Benefits of Dried Figs
A fig is a soft fruit with a thin skin that can be either green or purple. Figs have been popular around the world for centuries. They are both tasty and nutritious. In fact, recent studies have shown that they may be helpful in treating a range of medical concerns, from diabetes to eczema.
Here are some of the super benefits of adding figs to your daily diet.
- May Improve Bone Health
Dried figs are a good fruit source of calcium, a mineral that is involved in bone density. Their high potassium content may counteract the urinary excretion of calcium caused by high salt diets. This in turn helps to keep calcium in bones and lessens the risk of osteoporosis.
- Good for Weight Loss
Dried figs are naturally high in dietary fibre, figs can be a useful food to include in the diet for those watching their weight. High fibre foods provide feelings of fullness and can reduce hunger and cravings.
- High in Antioxidants
Figs, especially dried ones, are rich in antioxidants thanks to their high polyphenol content. Research shows figs’ polyphenol content is higher than both red wine and green tea. Remember, antioxidants are beneficial to your health because they mop up harmful free radicals.
- Digestive Health
Due to the fruit’s laxative properties, people commonly use fig syrup to help treat constipation. However, only a few studies have ever provided evidence of figs helping with constipation.

STORAGE OF GERBS
We strongly recommend storing in an airtight container in a cool, dark environment like a pantry or kitchen cabinet, away from direct exposure to sunlight or excessive heat like an oven. The amount of times you open the container and let in the harmful effects of oxygen will only increase the likelihood of rancidity; thus we encourage you to not empty more than 1 pound of product at a time. Gerbs can be frozen too, but we do not recommend it, because the cell structures will change as the product thaws out!

Better than I epected It is kind of like a fig newton without the cookie.... I know that sounds goofy. They are fresh, not too sweet. They look different than I thought figs looked like- grey not black. Very tasty. Very grateful to have found a place to get dried fruit without added sugar.

addictive!!! This is the second time I've ordered the turkish figs. Both times the shipment has been quick (3 days) and they've been fresh, soft, extremely sweet and addictive. Very hard to stay out of them, they're soooo good. Zip lock bags help in snacking, keeping them fresh. Best part, I'm sensitive to a lot of chemicals/additives and I can enjoy these without triggering a reaction. . .
