These natural products contain calcium,sulphurironpotassiumphosphorous,manganesecopper and magnesium which are advantageous for health. 

Study says that consuming one date daily is necessary for a balanced and healthy diet. You can either have the dates just like that, or can even add it to those mouth-watering desserts. If willing you can even use dates to make chutney with either tomatoes or tamarind, and can store it in the refrigerator!
