Dates are an excellent source of natural energy. Natural sugars in dates offer the instant absorption of glucose and the long-lasting absorption of fructose, while fiber and complex carbs slow the burning of energy.
Carrying 50% more potassium by weight than bananas, dates are a great heart-healthy recovery food. They're rich in nutrients, including vitamins K, B, B-6, and folate and minerals such as calcium, potassium, phosphorus, manganese, magnesium, iron, and thiamin.
We proudly source our Deglet Noor dates from Jewel Date Farm in Thermal, California. Jewel resides in the heart of the Coachella Valley — arguably the best date-growing region in all of North America.
Valued for their sweetness, we use Aseel dates from the Indus River region. Food production in the ancient Indus River Valley goes back over 4,000 years due to its rich, fertile soil. Less fibrous and easier to pit than most California varietals, Aseel dates provide the smooth consistency we value in our organic energy bars.
Often referred to as ‘the queen of dates’, Tunisian Deglet Noors are the sole date product in our organic gels. Commonly grown in Mediterranean areas, Deglet Noors hold the highest market value in Tunisia and across international markets.
