Grown in the holy city of Al Madinah Al Munawwarah, Safawi dates can be easily identified by their deep black color, golden inner flesh, and their distinct lack of sugar. They resemble Ajwa dates with their refined structure and taste.
As a semi-soft variety of dates, they’re a great choice for dicing, cakes, cookies, and bread. This versatility is just part of what makes this fruit so great, however. Safawi dates, like all dates, are the very definition of a superfood.
They’re high in fiber, potassium, protein, B vitamins, and other essential nutrients. These numerous health benefits are why they’re often a staple of Muslim homes come Ramadan.
