It is possible to get dry figs when fruits fully ripen on the plant and are then dried in the sun. Considering all types of dried fruit, dried figs are the richest in calcium (186 mg/100g, even more than milk, which has 119g/ 100g), that is in the right proportion to phosphorus to ensure the best absorption. This is why they are highly recommended to people who do not eat milk and dairy products.
They are also known to be rich in potassium, an essential element for heart health and to prevent hypertension or to fight water retention, which is one of the causes of cellulitis. Figs also contain quite a good amount of vitamin B1 or thiamine, a substance which is essential for cells to well assimilate sugars.
