While it is wonderful to break your fast with family and friends, it is recommended to opt for a lighter Iftar, since we are not physically active as we were before the pandemic, and the main concern today is about staying strong. During Ramadan, one of the most recommended food options are dates - simply out of respect for tradition and because they provide a super quick boost of energy and nutritionally speaking, dates contain potassium, protein, iron and other minerals. Grown exclusively in an optimal environment, Bateel’s gourmet dates are 100 per cent organic and retain their natural flavour as well as superior texture. Some of their most popular varieties include Ajwa, Medjool and Segai.

Known as the ‘Holy Date’, Ajwa dates have long held a special place within Arabic tradition. With their sweet, luscious taste and raisin-like texture, they are reminiscent of prunes, with a ?esh which beautifully melts in the mouth. With each mouthful, you will be consuming a high level of vitamins, healthy fats, protein and carotenoids.

The Medjool date stands out for its thin, reddish brown to mahogany skin and amber-hued flesh. These dates are naturally sweet without any added sugar and they are full of potassium. Also, these luscious dates are virtually sodium, fat and cholesterol free making them an organic superfood. Soft, juicy and surprisingly chewy, Segai dates are characterised by their multi-coloured hues and distinctive oblong shape. These dates are medium in size, with a crunchy, dry base and a fruity ?avour, and are mildly sweet.
