Figs are an extremely healthy fruit that are in permanent cultivation in Brazil. Rich in complex carbohydrates and essential minerals such as potassium, iron and calcium, a half-cup of fig corresponds to a half-cup of milk in terms of nutrition. Figs are commonly used in many diets because they are fat-free, sodium-free, cholesterol-free and delicious. They are also recommended to maintain strong bones and teeth and to prevent the risk of heart disease and some types of cancer.
