Dates (250g)

$7.50 ea



Dates are a good source of various vitamins and minerals, energy, sugar, and fibre. They also contain calcium, iron, phosphorus, potassium, magnesium and zinc. They are intensely sweet, so they contrast well with salty flavors, like cured meat, as well as tangy flavors like citrus, yogurt, mild goat cheese, and blue cheese. Try pairing them with warm flavours, like cinnamon, cardamom, and ginger, and other fruits, like pears, apples, and bananas.

Dates have been declared a superfood: the breakfast, lunch and coffee sweetener of champions. Touted by whole foods enthusiasts and Paleo eaters, this naturally dry fruit is a powerhouse of minerals, energy and fiber. Its paste makes a natural binder in baked treats; its syrup adds sweetness to beverages. Eaten plain or stuffed, it makes a nutritious snack.
