Dried Jujube Fruit and Jujube Crisps from Abakus Foods
There’s a new superfood snack hitting the UK shelves! Packed with antioxidants, flavonoids and phenols, these sweet & aromatic berries provide a natural on the go snack packed with nutrients.
The Jujube Fruit, also known as Red Date, originated 4000 years ago in the Far East, where people enjoy them for vitality and wellbeing. While they are very well known in countries such as China and Korea, the Jujube Fruit has stayed relatively undiscovered in the UK…until now!
Loaded with 18 out of the 24 important amino acids, which aid in the formation of more than 50,000 proteins in the body, the fresh fruit contains 20x times more vitamin C than citrus fruits. It also contains an array of nutrients such as Iron and Manganese, which help support the immune system, build red blood cells, help reduce tiredness and increase vitality.
These vibrant red coloured berries are naturally sweet and make a tasty snack in between meals, whilst also being a versatile ingredient that can be added to porridge, smoothies, baking, teas and energy balls.
Abakus Foods is on a mission to introduce the Jujube Fruit and its benefits to the UK. By offering both the chewy whole fruit and crunchy crisps version of this amazing fruit, they provide a fun and healthy option for any one to enjoy.
