One of the world’s oldest trees, the fig tree can be traced back to the earliest historical documents and features prominently in the Bible. Figs are native to the Middle East and the Mediterranean and were held in such high regard by the Greeks that laws were once created to prevent their export. Naturally high in dietary fiber, figs can be a useful food to include in the diet for those watching their weight. High fiber foods provide feelings of fullness and can reduce hunger and cravings. Figs also contain prebiotics, which helps support the pre-existing good bacteria in the gut, improving digestive wellness. 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.
Certified organic dried figs. May contain traces of seeds and nuts.
