Jumbo Medjool Dates
Jumbo Medjool Dates are one of our crown jewels at Nuts.com. Plump, moist, and luscious, medjool dates are simply divine. An extremely meaty date with a tiny pit. We also carry pitted dates.
1. Low in Fat, Rich in Vitamins
California dates are loaded with the energy you need every day to win a marathon or get you through a tough day. With only 24 calories per date (248 per 100 gram serving), dates are high in dietary fiber, carbohydrates, and contain more potassium than bananas! Yet they are virtually fat, cholesterol and sodium free!
2. Meet Your Daily Fruit Requirement
A handful of dates will help you meet the 5-A-Day goal. Five to six delicious California dates or a cup of chopped dates equals one serving. Great tasting, power-packed California dates are part of the USDA Pyramid's food group. Eating California dates can help you achieve the recommended goal for fruit servings each day.
3. High in Both Soluble and Insoluble Fiber
The American Cancer Society recommends that you consume 20-35 grams of dietary fiber a day. Dietary fiber comes in two forms - soluble and insoluble. Each serves a valuable function. Insoluble fiber increased the rate at which food moves through the digestive system. Soluble fiber may help control diabetes by decreasing elevated blood glucose levels. Soluble fiber also had been found to help lower serum cholesterol levels, particularly undesirable low density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol.
California dates are a good source of dietary fiber. A serving of power-packed California dates, just 5 to 6 six dates, can provide 3 grams of dietary fiber. That's 14 percent of your recommended daily value.
4. Natural Energy Booster
A serving of power-packed California dates contains 31 grams of carbohydrates, making them a powerhouse of energy. Carbohydrates include 3 grams of dietary fiber and 29 grams of naturally occurring sugars such as fructose, glucose and sucrose to provide quick energy and are readily used by the body. California dates are a perfect energy boosting snack.
5. Regulate Blood Pressure
Ounce per ounce, pound for pound, California dates are one of the best natural sources of potassium. Potassium is an essential mineral your body needs to maintain muscle contractions including the vital heart muscle. Potassium is needed to maintain a healthy nervous system and to balance the body's metabolism.
Since potassium is not stored in the body, and much is lost in perspiration, it must be continually replenished. As you consume potassium you excrete sodium, helping to keep blood pressure down. As people age, their kidneys become less efficient at eliminating sodium. About a 400 mg increase in potassium intake has been associated with a 40% reduction in the risk of stroke. This roughly amounts to one additional serving daily of California dates.
6. Contain 3X As Much Potassium As Bananas
Eating California dates and drinking water is an ideal, natural way to replenish the potassium. A serving of California dates contain 240 milligrams of potassium or 7% of the recommended daily value. Bite for bite, they have three times the amount of potassium as bananas!
7. Excellent Source of B-Vitamins
California dates contain a variety of B-complex vitamins - thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, vitamin B-6 and pantothenic acid. These vitamins have a variety of functions that help maintain a healthy body- to metabolize carbohydrates and maintain blood glucose levels, fatty acids for energy, and they help make hemoglobin, the red and white blood cells.
8. Rich in Magnesium and Iron
Magnesium is essential for healthy bone development and for energy metabolism. One serving of California dates provides 4% of the suggested daily intake of magnesium. Iron is essential to red blood cell production. Red blood cells carry all the nutrients to cells throughout the body. One serving of California dates contains nearly a third of the Recommended Dietary Allowance for iron.

“You guys are certainly "nuttier" than I am. Yes, that is so! The messages written all over the carton confirm that. When UPS delivered my order today, the driver said. "I think it is something to eat". I said, "it's my 5 lbs. of dates. I can't wait." I quickly opened your very descriptive box, and consumed 5 very delicious, plump, moist dates.

“These are the best dates I ever tasted!”
Kristy October 29, 2012
“I got the sample pack and couldn't have been happier. No extra sugar, soft and smushy and just the right amount of sweet after munching on sunflower seeds for a while. Next am getting the lb bag. ”
Larry, Ohio October 29, 2012
“These nuts are all they're cracked up to be! I know, sounds stupid, doesn't it? But I'm really impressed. Both the pecans and the dates were huge, biggest I have ever seen, fresh and flavorful. Thank you so much! And thanks for the sample of figs, too. ”
B. Lorraine Wallace October 24, 2012
“We received our order 2 days earlier than expected. The Medjool dates are incredible! Tender, creamy, HUGE and very fresh! We consume dates for health reasons and have tried several brands, but these are by far the best. No sugaring, mold, or older ones at all!
The apricots are great, too! We will be buying all our dates from Nuts.com from now on! Thanks so much!
Linda, Glasgow, KY October 24, 2012
“Medjool dates of any size are hard to find where we reside. Nuts.com's jumbos are the largest, freshest dates we have ever tasted. Truly incomparable and beyond jumbo in size. Purchasing direct from the grower was an affordable way of getting the finest quality delivered swiftly to our door. Thank you!”
Tim, Jupiter, Fla October 23, 2012
“The delivery was fast, days before scheduled delivery. I found "nuts.com" looking for corn nuts, which were very good, but the dates were the best I ever ate. Eating a date then a fig made the fig taste tart. I will be buying all again and soon. Thank you for the quality products at a good price. ”
Kathy, Waldorf, MD October 12, 2012
“I have never tasted dried dates and figs this wonderful before!!! They are amazing and so full of flavor. The figs are so delicious. They're like fig newtons without the newton! Fabulous products. Can't wait to try more of your goodies. Thank you.”
Elaine, Brandon, MS October 12, 2012
“My order arrived yesterday. It was packed well and I love the comments on the shipping box. Almonds were delicious, fig sample awesome and, medjool dates so big. Can't wait to make my healthy kale drink with these dates. Every item is so much tastier then what I buy locally. I will be a repeat customer. ”
Peggy, Lafayette, Indiana October 6, 2012
“I recently ordered for the first time from Nuts.com, and I am really impressed! The packaging was awesome--from the funny expressions on the box to the sturdy zip-top packaging...not to mention the eco friendly packing peanuts that dissolve in water! I ordered the jumbo medjool dates, and they are wonderful--plump, soft, and full of flavor. The organic gummy bears were a hit with my kids, and I am excited to try the almond flour. I was happy to find a free sample of quinoa in there, too! Thanks! I will certainly be ordering again; I just can't find this quality of products of in my area. Many thanks, Nuts.com!!”
