„The bread of the desert“! Dates are highly prized, since they are easily digested, and contain large amounts of vitamins and minerals, whilst their sugar content makes them a rapid supply of energy. Ideal for desert travellers, they are also beneficial to health-conscious Europeans. Dates have high levels of magnesium, B vitamins and fibre, all good for the intestines. In contrast, the glycaemic index is very low [1 to 2]. Dried dates have an antioxidant capacity of 3895 µmol TE (ORAC value = Oxygen Radical Absorption Capacity). Foods rich in antioxidants boost the body´s defence mechanisms, helping to balance excessive production of free radicals. The recommended daily ORAC requirement is between 5000 and 7000 .
Our organic dates are very large, very exclusive, soft and extra sweet. Their consistency is very soft. The date variety is the „Medjoul“. This high-quality date variety is also known as the King´s Date.
Origin and production:
We source our organic dates exclusively from Tunisia and Palestine. Both countries´ difficult economic and political situation highlights the importance of producing organic products. Tourism plays an important role in the countries, contributing towards extremely high water consumption. Small farming families are fighting for traditional forms of agriculture and maintaining a healthy co-existence with nature and people.
Dates are harvested high up in the trees, in a manner that seems daring from a European perspective. Cutting dates from the plant, sorting, pitting and individual packaging are carried out manually. The drying process is an age-old one, as in contrast to other dried fruits, the dates dry when they´re still on the trees.
The dates are immediately pressure disinfested at our premises in Austria, and undergo thorough controls. The combination of pressure and time ensure that the produce is absolutely free of pests. Our strict, regular controls ensure high levels of product safety and quality.
Dates are an ideal, very tasty vegan/vegetarian snack for in between meals. They are an important foodstuff in dry, hot Arab regions, where they are served together with tea or coffee as a symbol of hospitality or just to pause and enjoy life. Dates are a popular choice in a range of sweet Arab and Oriental dishes. We recommend them in combination with cream cheese, filled with marzipan and walnut kernels or other types of nut. Dates can of course be used in warm vegetarian or meat dishes, with fish or salads, on their own or slightly toasted.
