Dried Jujube Red Dates
Also known as “Red dates,” “Chinese dates,” or “Daechu,” this round fruit is a popular ingredient as an accompaniment to sweet and savory dishes. Traditionally, Jujube has been used in Ancient Chinese medicine to treat insomnia, but its rich nutrient profile shows its ability to regulate digestion and bowel function (fiber), calm the brain and nervous system, and maintain blood pressure (potassium) and blood circulation (iron). It’s also a rich source of vitamins A, C and antioxidants, particularly flavonoids, saponins, and polysaccharides which makes it a wonderful ingredient to incorporate for keeping your body healthy.
- Taste: Sweet and warm honey-like flavor
- Texture: Chewy, somewhat spongey
