The fig has held symbolic and spiritual significance spanning civilizations ancient and modern. Now as before, the fig offers a perfect nutritional storm; a combination of fiber, minerals, and nutrients that are unequaled in nature. The dense, sweet flesh, coupled with their unique crunchy seed, goes well in baked goods, with meat, poultry, fish, vegetables and alongside other fruits.
Figs are a part of almost any special diet, whether low in fat, low in sodium, high fiber, weight loss, or diabetic. Fat-free, sodium-free and, like other plant foods, cholesterol-free, they satisfy a sweet tooth without adding any fat. Their unique satiny texture and seeds provide a satisfying mouth feel and crunch.
