  • Heart Health: They are abundant in potassium, reducing the risk of cardiovascular diseases. Cardiovascular diseases like high blood pressure and cholesterol are significantly reduced if consumed regularly.
  • Aids Digestion: Studies showed that eating dates regularly promoted regular bowel movements compared to not eating dates. The fibre content of dates is high, which facilitates good bowel movement.
  • Anti-inflammatory: when someone’s body goes through trauma, infection, or disease, it fights it off by reacting to it via inflammation. Phenolics and flavonoids in dates are known to regulate and reduce such inflammation.
  • Fights Diabetes: If consumed correctly, the natural sugars in dates help with insulin production and prevent sugar absorption by the intestines.
  • Improved Fertility: Date consumption in males prompted estrone and sterol production. Which also helps with sperm quality and motility as well.
  • Prevention of Cancer: Dates are full of antioxidants like carotenoids and flavonoids, which help prevent various types of cancer. 
  • Stimulates Bone Health: Minerals such as selenium, manganese, magnesium, and copper are abundant in dates. These micronutrients are imperative for building bone strength and quality. Studies also show that eating dates regularly can prevent bone diseases.


Dates are an excellent source of natural sugars; they’ve been used as a sweetener in several cultures. How one gets the best of it is as follows:

  • Chopped and added to salads for added flavour.
  • Soaked overnight and eaten the following morning
  • Eat whole as a snack.
  • Grind dates to paste and add them to cake, pancake, oatmeal, and yoghurt as a natural sweetener.
  • Add them to your charcuterie board alongside cheeses.
  • Make a small slit in the date and stuff it with nuts, nut butters, and cheeses.
  • Finely chop the dates, add them to the oats, seeds, and nuts, and roll them into little energy balls.

Question: How and where do I store dates?

Answer: The correct way to store Rostaa Omani dates is in an airtight container. It is advisable to store the container on a cool, dry, and dark shelf. They need to be kept away from direct sources of heat and moisture. Keeping them in an airtight container is vital since, although they are dried fruit, they are prone to catching moisture. If stored correctly, the dates can last up to 3 months.


Question: How do I eat Omani dates?

Answer: Omani dates, or Omani khubani, are best consumed in the morning after being soaked overnight. This is known as activating dried fruit. Once soaked, the date changes colour, grows in size and becomes softer and more digestible than when consumed raw or dried. The other benefit is the absorption of nutrients. Your body can harness the nutrients from soaked nuts and fruit rather than raw. 

While you can consume dates raw, you may not be able to completely absorb the mighty walnuts’ goodness due to their enzyme inhibitors and may also face mild indigestion.

They can also be consumed as an evening snack in smoothies. Make sure to balance out your date consumption, as they are high in sugar.


Question: How many dates should I consume?

As per studies, consuming 5–10 dates daily is advised to reap the optimum benefits of Omani Dates. 


 Question: Who can eat Omani dates?

Answer: Children, adolescents, and adults can benefit from dates. It is always advisable to consult with your doctor to best assess your dietary requirements. People with blood sugar must consult their physicians and focus on a balanced diet.
