Indigenous to the Middle East, dates are sweet and savory fruits of Phoenix Dactylifera or the common palm date tree. Dates are known for their high amount of energy and natural sugar; that’s why they are widely favored throughout the region. Sayer dates are of the most frequently grown kinds of date in Iran. Sayer dates are known for the high concentration of anti-oxidants which help protect cells from free radicals and therefore prevent several diseases. They are often used as a natural substitute for sugar to help with blood sugar regulation and manage diabetes.
Their shape is a bit elongated and their color varies from brown to dark brown. The skin often sticks to the tender fleshy part and the low amount of moisture makes them fall under the semi-dry group. With their natural sweetness and refreshing aroma, our Sayer dates are here to provide you with the highest quality available in the market.
