How healthy are figs?

Figs do not only taste delicious, they are also very healthy. In addition to digestive fiber, the sweet fruits also contain various vitamins as well as important minerals such as magnesium and potassium. Also in terms of calories, figs don’t need to hide, because they have little more calories than apples – but this applies only to the fresh fruit, because dried figs are not for the slim line.
