A great healthy snack, dried figs are low in fat and cholesterol and high in dietary fibre and minerals. They are great for eating when you crave something sweet and even better when used in your favourite recipes. Figs can be part of almost any special diet, be it low fat, low sodium, high fibre, weight loss, diabetic or even the Mediterranean diet. They satisfy a sweet tooth without adding any fat. The unique satiny texture and seeds provide a satisfying mouth feel and crunch. Figs are a rich source of minerals such as potassium, which can help to control blood pressure, and calcium, which helps to build and strengthen bones.
