Nutritional values

The sweet figs and almonds provide the spicy side dish with a lot of flavour and satiating fiber. Above all, they provide us with plenty of magnesium, which strengthens muscles and nerves.

Dried figs are often covered with a white layer of crystallized sugar. This is not a defect, but an unmistakable sign of good, natural quality.
