Medjool dates are deep amber-brown and have a slightly crinkly skin that shimmers from natural sugar crystals. Bite into one, and your
teeth sink into satisfyingly sticky flesh that tastes of rich caramel, hints of wild honey and a touch of cinnamon. Melt-in-your-mouth Medjools are so luscious they taste as if they have been warmed in an oven. Well, Medjool dates do not disappoint. Packed full of vitamins, minerals and fiber, the health benefits are remarkable.
These edible sweet fruits of the date palm tree make great natural sweeteners and sugar substitutes, but they’re not just delicious. They’ve also been proven to decrease cholesterol and boost bone health — and these are just a couple of the many reasons to add dried or fresh Medjool dates to your diet.
