Medjool dates are great for eating on their own, cooking and blending for desserts. They are also highly nutritious with innumerable health benefits.

Dates are beneficial for both adults and children, especially during a time of recovery from illness and injury. They are brimming with much needed minerals and energy to help you stay healthy. As your body absorbs the high nutrient value of dates, they pacify feelings of hunger, maintain good eye sight, regulate the digestive process and are a great food to eat when breaking your fast as the nutritional value eases the stomach lining readying it for more foods to be eaten.

Medjool dates are very popular as a snack on their own, stuffed with cheese or used in muesli mixes and baking. They are delicious in cakes, biscuits, puddings and a variety of savoury dishes or curries. Blend for a delightful caramel. Don't forget to remove the pits!
Storage: Organic medjool dates are a preservative-free, raw product, high in sugar and moisture. In winter sometimes the dates can start to crystallise and may have a white sugary appearance—but they are fine to eat! In summer, higher temperatures can cause the moisture and the sugar in the fruit to react (starting the fermentation process). So overall to get the best from your dates, we highly recommend refrigeration throughout the year.
We pack a wide range of natural food products on shared equipment including nuts, seeds, grains and cereals. This includes sesame, peanuts, soy and gluten. While we do our best to avoid any kind of cross contamination, this can sometimes occur and therefore any of our products may contain traces of nuts and gluten.
