Deglet Nour or Noor means “Fingers of light”
So called probably because of their slight translucency and their elongated shape. Their seed can be seen right through the flesh when held to the light.
Cultivated in Tunisia since 5000 years, the Date Palm Tree is often named “the Tree of Life” in the regions where the food and source of wood were so scarce. From the palm tree they were able to produce many products.
In the desert they the nomadic tribes often call the dates “bread of the desert”. They are now praised all over the world for their high nutritional value.
Rich in potassium, iron and fluorine, it is fully loaded with many vitamins and minerals.
They also contains sulfur, magnesium, phosphorous, calcium, manganese, copper, amino acids, vitamin A, B, specially B6, C, K and folate.
Dates are also high in antioxidants with the Deglet Nour variety being the best at scavenging free radicals.
The three main antioxidants in the fruit are beta-carotene, lutein and zeaxanthin. They are also high in antioxidant polyphenol and their tannins are protective against inflammation and infection.
