In today’s world, the conscience for high-quality and healthy food is more than ever relevant. There are also several different opinions how humans should eat in order to live healthy lives. At the same time, more and more people attach great importance to the environment and other factors and include them in their nutrition related considerations. Thus, vegetarian and vegan diet enjoy for example lasting popularity worldwide. But what’s so unique about dates in this context?
Dates are part of the human nutrition for several thousand years, considered as fruits very rich in nutrients and are therefore nowadays designated as superfood. Why so? Dates are rich in energy, fructose and potassium and contain fibre and copper. Potassium contributes to the normal functioning of the nervous system, to normal muscle function and to the maintenance of normal blood pressure. Copper contributes to the normal energy-yielding metabolism, to the normal function of the immune system and to the protection of cells from oxidative stress.
Dates are very popular with vegans since their high levels of energy, fructose and potassium optimally suit a vegetarian and especially vegan diet. They offer many essential nutrients that are needed by the human body for a good functioning and grow in harmony with humans and nature.
