About Our Bulk Turkish Figs
Fig trees were one of the first to be cultivated by man. So, fossils of figs have been found to be dated to between 9400 and 9200 BCE. These findings predate the domestication of early sources of nutrition such as barley, wheat, and legumes. This also indicates the cultivation of figs to be quite possibly one of the first instances of agriculture. One can grow fig trees nearly in all of world’s temperatures, therefore, they spread quickly through many different cultures.
The sweet flavor of Turkish Figs can be described as a mix of apples and pears. Dried figs have a chewy texture wholly independent from other types of fruit. Our bulk Turkish Figs are favored all over the world as not only a healthy, but a delicious light snack. These figs do well jams and baked confections.
The nutritional benefits of Turkish Figs are vast. Their low levels of fat, sodium, and processed sugar give them the space for high amounts of fiber and nutrients. Turkish Figs can fit into many restrictive dietary meal plans. They provide both soluble and insoluble fiber, which is essential for digestion. Turkish Figs are also cholesterol-free and fat-free. They also have the largest mineral count of any common fruit, packing large amounts of calcium, iron, and potassium.
