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.

“Hello, fellow nuts! In less than 48 hours after ordering, even a Michigan blizzard didn't deter the delivery of my delicacies! I am already cooking some quinoa for dinner, and have been into the other goodies as soon as I could get them open. I haven't had such wonderfully fresh figs since I was a child and my dad somehow had access to them, and the Medjool dates are as good as the ones we got straight from the date trees in CA while there. Yummy stuff, all of it! I'll be back-- consider yourselves wonderful!! KathyK”

“Considering this is my second order (probably not the last) of your jumbo dates I would say YES my mother REALLY enjoys them. She prefers them over ANY of those purchased at our grocery stores. Thank you for a great product!”

“Just received my package an hour ago and I have been munching away ever since. The nuts (almonds and cashews) are all fresh and wonderful. And the dates? Omg the dates are some of the best I have ever had! Chewy and moist and mmmmmmmm. You really can't find dates of this quality around here in the stores. The mochi rice cakes are a hit and the Turkish figs are going to disappear very soon. I can see now why people have been leaving you such rave reviews. You guys have a new and loyal customer for long as you are around. ”

“The nuts and dates came so fast I did not know even UPS moved stuff so quickly. The Jumbo Dates are great, and the nuts are all so tasty. So the service and the nuts themselves make this company one to use again without doubt.

“You guys picked the Dates better than I did. Everyone of them in the 5lbs bag was perfect! Not a stinker in the bunch!

“My husband and I went to see our friend's new store--they had received so many dying flowers--but our dates we sent had made the biggest hit with everyone--they could not believe what a great gift we had given them for their grand opening! The dates were fresh and had an ongoing delight for everyone-flowere last a few days and die! Thank you so much--will order again soon for another gift--great product, service, and great price!

“Beautiful, gigantic and fresh dates. Great packaging to keep them from drying out. Best dates I have ever had- plus fast shipping.
Thanks guys! ”

“Top of the line Date, though the Zahidi is excellent as well. These are a bit gummy and very sweet, bordering on too sweet.
Still, they are excellent and I will be making them a regular purchase.”
Kaye February 5, 2011
“I ordered from you specifically to get the dates, and I was not disappointed. They are DELISH!! Fresh, soft, tasty...and best of all, healthy! No comparison with the fresh dates from the grocery store. Walnuts and almonds, also healthy and scrumptious.
