Although dried fig has approximately high calories 249 calories per 100 gm USD nutritional facts , but everything has its price! Because it contains adequate amount of minerals such as calcium, magnesium, potassium and zinc! It’s also rich source of vitamins B complex. Nevertheless, fig is full of polyphenol compounds packaged as antioxidants. Personally, I don’t think how much calories, snack portion is 3 pieces if the fruit is in a normal size, 5-6 pieces if it’s in a mini size. The results will be A perfect 100 calories !
