Making the most of Fresh Figs
Figs are rich in calcium, iron, phosphorus and potassium. Vitamin C and the B group vitamins are present in small quantities. They are also high in fibre. Figs have the highest overall mineral content of all common fruits. A 40 gram (1/4 cup) serving of fresh figs provides 244 mg of potassium (7% of the DV), 53 mg of calcium (6% of the DV) and 1.2 mg of iron (6% of the DV). Figs are fat-free, sodium-free and cholesterol-free.
