Look to Figs for Fiber
Dietary fiber occurs naturally in plants, helps provide a feeling of fullness, and is important in promoting healthy laxation. Fiber that occurs naturally in foods like figs may help reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, obesity, and type 2 diabetes. Most Americans don’t get enough dietary fiber.
California Figs, both dark purple Mission and golden Calimyrna, are an excellent source of dietary fiber. A small handful, about 3 to 5 figs depending on the variety, provides 5 grams of dietary fiber or 20% of the Daily Value. Ounce-for-ounce dried figs have more dietary fiber than most other common fruits.
