Pitted dates are a powerhouse of potassium, the mineral that protects the heart by keeping sodium levels in check and preventing high blood pressure. A one cup serving of dates contains up to three times as much potassium as a one cup serving of bananas. They are also an excellent source of dietary fibre, which supports the digestive system and provides a sense of satiety and fullness. Organic pitted dates are also plentiful in B-complex vitamins, and minerals like magnesium and iron.
Organic dried pitted dates have had the stones removed and are therefore perfect for snacking. They hold their shape well and are a deliciously moist, flavoursome addition to baked products such as cakes, breads, muffins, pies and cookies. Regular pitted dates can sometimes be harder and sharper on the tongue though they are still good for making bliss balls if you soak them in hot water first to soften them up.
Organic farming uses no pesticides or artificial fertilisers and works with nature to build the fertility and health of our soil while caring for our environment. Organic farming has a low carbon footprint. Pure and simple, just the way nature intended.
Caution: Although every care has been taken to remove date stones, some may remain.
This product is naturally gluten, nut and soy free. Please bear in mind that we do 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 occasionally occur and any of our products may contain traces of these, unless we have specified the product is otherwise certified.
TWC source this product as Certified Organic (spec sheets available on request). We then pack it down in a yet-to-be-certified organic facility. This means it can't be sold as Certified Organic (just 'Organic'). We're in the process of gaining our very own organic certification and expect this will be complete by mid 2019. It's then that these very same high quality organic products will regain their 'certified' status on the TWC website. Some old labels may say Certified Organic on them. The product is no different whatsoever and the pack down area uses all organic cleaning agents. Clear as mud? ;)
