All natural dried organic Iranian Figs are grown without pesticides or chemicals. Smaller than California figs and not as sweet as Turkish figs, these Iranian figs have a delicious flavor that is great for snacking, cooking, or baking. Dried organic Iranian figs are a healthy treat that is rich in dietary fiber, potassium, and other minerals.
Health Benefits of Organic Iranian Figs
Organic Iranian figs are rich in dietary fiber; in a single serving, they provide 20 percent of the daily recommended value for fiber. The great thing about these fruits is that they pack both soluble and insoluble fiber. Soluble fiber supports nutrient absorption, may reduce LDL “bad” cholesterol levels, and can help stabilize blood sugar levels. Insoluble fiber provides a feeling of fullness and keeps the digestive tract running smoothly.
In addition to dietary fiber, dried organic Iranian figs are also a good source of essential minerals. They are rich in potassium, the heart-healthy nutrient that reduces high blood pressure, helps the heart beat, and keeps sodium levels in check. Iranian figs also contain adequate levels of calcium, to support bone and teeth health. They also have iron, the mineral that ensures we stay energized by delivering oxygen-rich blood cells throughout our bodies.
