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.

“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.”

“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.
Robert Barton, Ocala, Fl January 27, 2011
“I am just blown away with the freshness and Gigantic Taste of the Dates. We were in Israel in December and had dates waiting for us in one of the Hotels, and they were plump and sweet. Yours are AWESOME! Glad I found you! Keep up the nutty work!”

“I buy pistachios on every trip to the grocery. The ones from Nuts Online are the biggest ones I've seen in a long time. They also seem to have a much better flavor. They are obviously much fresher.
The dates and figs are also superior to the store brands. I had no idea how good Medjool dates were. I'm having a few dates and figs right now as breakfast.
You can be sure I'll be trying some other items from Nuts Online.
By the way, the order arrived in very good time.”

“I do not know where to start, I will just say amazing! We got the whole wheat fig bars; they are absolutely delicious and very moist(hard to find in whole wheat products). The dark Chocolate covered pretzels are damm good as well. The Turkish Figs are truly amazing, and last but not least the Medjool Dates are super soft, they really melt in your mouth!
I really thanks NUTSONLINE team for the great customer service, quick shipping and FRESHEST PRODUCTS. ”

“I received my first order a few days ago and I just want to say thank you for the super fast shipping and such wonderful products. Best Medjool dates and your prices can't be beat. Thank you for sending the ginger slices, my husband loves them. We'll be ordering again very soon!”
Charles, Carlisle, PA January 8, 2011
“I have ordered medjools form several online places over the past couple of years. This year, I tried your store because of price. I was a little concerned that these would not really be jumbos, or that they would be dry. Shipping was much less expensive than other places. The dates arrived the day after I placed the order, and were well packed. They were indeed jumbo size (I have some larges from last year, and these are noticeably larger) and they are very moist and fresh. I will order here again without hesitation, and would recommend others do as well. Better price, top notch product, very fast shipping, well packed. Thanks!”
Eva, Grand Haven, MI January 7, 2011
“Amazing! The fastest delivery on the planet! and the most delicious, fresh, munch on all day, dates ever!
My daughters are thrilled with their gift of healthy pleasure.
Thank you so much for your exceptional service and product.

“When they say jumbo, they mean JUMBO! I have seen dates in my grocery store before but those dates look like dried up ants compared to NutsOnline dates. I cant believe how beautiful & fresh these dates are. I am a forever customer after this second order.”

“I am truly delighted with the Medjool dates I ordered. They are so large, sweet, and moist - I couldn't stop eating them! I am trying to eat healthier and I definitely won't have any problem or hesitation in reaching for these to satisfy a sweet craving.
The delivery caught me by surprise - I wasn't expecting it until Monday and it arrived the Saturday before. The packaging made me smile - thank you for your sense of humor - it's a rare thing to experience. Also thank you for the free trial package of figs! I'm so glad I found you guys!”
