What is ‘kurma’?
Known as kurma to the local Malay community in Singapore, dates have been enjoyed for thousands of years in the Middle East. A versatile fruit that can be enjoyed in many different ways, kurma is often eaten as a breakfast food or dessert, due to its natural sweetness. They also make for great snacks, providing an instant pick-me-up to overcome sluggishness in between meals.
Nutritional benefits of dates
Despite its unassuming size and appearance, the humble date fruit is power-packed to nourish1. Dates contain nutrients such as carbohydrates, minerals, dietary fibre, antioxidants, vitamins and even fatty and amino acids.
Research also shows that consuming dates also helps increase potassium levels in the body. Potassium is one of the important dietary minerals that help the body to recover after engaging in strenuous physical activity. Getting enough potassium for the body is also associated with a lower risk of stroke, osteoporosis, high blood pressure and kidney stones2. Along with being a great source of energy thanks to its high carbohydrate content3, it is no wonder that this little fruit is often said to be a great pre-workout snack.
An additional important mineral found in dates is iron, which assists in the formation of red blood cells. Besides iron, dates also contain vitamins B9 which produces folic acid that enhances red blood cell formation, and vitamin C which helps with iron absorption. Hence, dates are also considered good dietary supplements in fighting conditions such as iron-deficiency anaemia4.
Another remarkable benefit of dates is its reputation as a lactogenic food5 – a cult staple of every nursing mother as it helps to boost breast milk supply. Consuming dates help to increase the hormone prolactin, which is responsible for breast milk production in new mothers. Dates are true blue superfoods indeed!
