Organic Dried Jujube, also known as red dates, are popular throughout many parts of Asia. While they have an appearance similar to small dates they are not in the date family. Though their taste is not unlike dates, they are not as sweet and have apple or pear notes. These dried fruits are used as snacks, served with nuts, in cakes and desserts, cooked in rice, to make jellies and jams, steeped in teas which in turn can be used to make rice.
Jujubes are known to contain many nutrients including niacin, riboflavin, thiamine vitamin C and two forms of vitamin A. Jujubes contain the minerals calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, potassium, sodium and zinc. Jujubes contain an impressive array of phenols and nine bioflavonoids, which support vascular function and cellular health. Jujubes contain 18 amino acids. Jujubes have been used in traditional medical systems for thousands of years.
They have been used as or in remedies for sore throats, digestive aids, relief from gastrointestinal pain, liver and spleen support, detoxification and many other uses. Studies suggest jujubes may have many additional health benefits.
