We get our dried figs from Turkey. Figs are mostly carbs and fiber. They are a great addition to a meal or snack. Figs also contain small amounts of a wide variety of nutrients, but they’re particularly rich in copper and vitamin B6. Copper is a vital mineral that’s involved in several bodily processes, including metabolism and energy production, as well as the formation of blood cells, connective tissues and neurotransmitters. Vitamin B6 is a key vitamin necessary to help your body break down dietary protein and create new proteins. It also plays an important role in brain health.
