These Organic Raw Red Dates are sometimes called 'jujubes' or 'jujuba.' They're used extensively throughout Asia as a sweet snack, for brewing tea, or even adding to soups. Biting into a Red Date is similar to eating a miniature dried apple. It has a chewy interior with a flavor reminiscent of apples and cherries.
Raw Hunza Fruits and Nuts are grown 6,000 to 9,000 feet above sea level using ancient organic farming methods. Mountain side terraced orchards are irrigated with mineral-rich glacial melt waters from the highest elevations. Over the millennium of time this natural process has produced two-foot thick topsoil, saturated with life giving nutrients containing calcium, copper, gold and iron. Unsulphured, no preservatives and no chemical fertilizers are ever used. Hunza Fruits and Nuts are allowed to attain full ripeness and bold flavor 'naturally' before being hand picked and dried under the sun and crisp, clean mountainous air.
Nutritionists have long touted the health benefits of raw foods. The 'Raw' logo indicates that the food was not heated above 118 F, which is the temperature at which many beneficial enzymes are believed to be destroyed. Raw foods contain more usable nutrients than their 'cooked' counterparts, along with being easily absorbed by the body.
