Pitted Zahedi Dates

Dates are dark and sweet fruits grown on Phoenix dactylifera, better known as the date palm tree. Date palms are often called the tree of life in middle eastern culture, due to the role dates have in the local cuisine as the staple food of the region. Various kinds of dates are grown in Iran, one of which is the Zahedi date. As a cholesterol-free source of energy, Zahedi dates are often recommended by doctors for those who need to be on a special diet. Almost zero fat and high levels of protein have made Zahedi dates the perfect snack for those who look for healthy snacks to improve their overall health.
