"DRIED FIGS ARE HIGH IN POTASSIUM"
Dried figs are high in potassium which may contribute to normal muscle function (1,2,3). Not only that, dried figs are high in fiber and a source of vitamin K, calcium, magnesium, copper and manganese (1,2). They’re also remarkable for their phenolic content, a type of antioxidant.
Figs have numerous edible seeds inside the fruit that are generally hollow, unless pollinated. Pollinated seeds are the ones that give the dried figs their characteristic nutty taste (4).
