Dates

Dates are the go-to sweet binding choice for many raw desserts and energy bars. Their readily available source of carbohydrates - sugars - makes them a great choice for instant energy (ideal for athletes). Dates can not only sweeten your NutriBlast, but they also provide fiber and potassium, another important component for athletes which prevents muscle cramping. An interesting fact about this antioxidant-rich food is that it is only 30% moisture, making it the only naturally "dehydrated" fruit!

Selection Process

Dates are naturally wrinkled, but should be shiny, unbroken, and evenly colored.
