General information

The date palm, has a straight, rough trunk and can reach 20 metres high. It produces dark-coloured cylindrical fruits that grow in thick bunches weighing up to 15 kg. Each tree produces up to 270 kg of dates per year. Most of the dates are dried in the sun to increase the concentration of sugars. This makes the dates sweeter, and enables them to be preserved longer so they can be available all year round.

Health Benefits

Dates contain magnesium and potassium which have calming properties and are therefore recommended in the case of nervous tension. Dates are included in all high carbohydrate diets because of their energy boosting properties. They are useful in cases of mental fatigue and physical weakness; suitable for teenagers, for pregnant and breast feeding women, and for the non-diabetic elderly to help prevent osteoporosis. They provide very little protein so are well suited in low protein diets.
