Turkish Figs are fat-free, sodium-free and, like other plant foods, cholesterol-free. One serving of figs is 40 grams, about 1/4 cup. Figs are high in fiber, providing 20% of the Daily Value — more dietary fiber per serving than any other common dried or fresh fruit.
Figs have the highest overall mineral content of all common fruits. As early as 2900 BC, in early Sumerian times, the medicinal use of figs was being stressed. Now as before, the fig offers a power-house of nutrition, a combination of fiber, minerals and nutrients that are unequaled in nature.
