Fig Nutrition

...the nutritional value of figs and full fig nutrition information...

Well known for their mild laxative effect, and high in potassium and dietary fibre, figs make an excellent snack choice.

  • Figs contain good amounts of potassium which is needed for muscle and nerve function and to regulate the bodies' acid balance. Potassium also helps to regulate the bodies' blood pressure.

  • A good source of dietary fibre, figs can help to maintain bowel movement, regulate normal blood sugar levels, and help to control the bodies' cholesterol.

  • Figs contain good amounts of calcium which helps in the building of strong bones.

  • Figs are also a good source of manganese which helps keep our bones strong and healthy, maintain normal blood sugar levels and helps to protect the bodies' cells from free radical damage.

  • Figs are a good fruit source of vitamin B6 when compared to most other fruits. Figs contain 110 mg of vitamin B6 per 100g. Vitamin B6 allows the body to store energy from protein and carbohydrates from the foods we eat and also helps haemoglobin to form.

  • One large fig contain around 47 calories.
