Milk and Dry Dates

Milk is a white liquid produced by the mammary glands of mammals. It is the primary source of nutrition for infant mammals (including humans who breastfeed) before they are able to digest other types of food. Early-lactation milk contains colostrum, which carries the mother's antibodies to its young and can reduce the risk of many diseases. Cow's milk has long been associated with good health, making it one of the most consumed beverages throughout the United States and Europe.

Dry Dates - Dried Dates go through a dehydration process to remove most of the moisture content, this gives dried dates a shelf life of a year or more, depending on the method of storage. Dried Dates contain vitamins C and K, B vitamins, iron, calcium and potassium. Dried Dates also contain protein, dietary fiber and are antioxidants, they are a good source of carbohydrates and calories for energy and strength.   Freeze Dried Dates can retain their flavour and nutrition values for up to 5-years.
