5 Reasons to Include Jujube Fruit in your Diet

Of course we think jujube fruits are delicious, but their subtly sweet flavour isn’t the only reason to love them! Here are five more benefits of including jujube in your diet:

  • It’s high in antioxidants. Like other superfoods, jujube is said to boost the immune system and help ward off age-related health problems.
  • It combats stress. The fast pace of 21st century life can get to us all. Luckily, jujube has long been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine to treat anxiety and insomnia, thanks to its mild sedative properties.
  • It can replace refined sugar. It’s now well-known that a diet packed with refined sugar can seriously damage your health. But that doesn’t mean you have to forgo dessert entirely! Jujube is a natural sweetener that can be added to porridge, smoothies and baked goods.
  • It’s so easy! Although we love trying out new jujube recipes, it's just as good as a solo act. Dried Jujube Fruit is similar to a date, but with a less overpowering sweetness, while Jujube Crisps make a crunchy and light midday biscuit alternative.
  • It's suitable for everyone. Struggling to find vegan snacks that are good for the planet but don’t compromise on taste? Looking for a healthy lunch box treat for a child with food allergies? All of our jujube snacks are vegan, dairy free, gluten free, additive free and non-GMO.
