During Ramadan, when fasting, it is especially important to support the body’s nutritional needs. F&N Magnolia Low Fat Milk with Kurma is a perfect beverage to complement your iftar (breaking of the fast) and sahur (pre-dawn) meals. It offers a rich and velvety texture, combined with the alluring taste of real dates, making it an excellent source of nutrition. This natural and wholesome drink contains only two ingredients – low-fat milk and real dates, without any additives.
Dried dates, also known as kurma to the local Malay-Muslim community in Singapore, is a familiar and a must-have staple at the dining table for communities around the world especially during the revered fasting month of Ramadan. Friends and families would gather alongside servings of kurma as they await the appointed time to break their fast when the sun sets beneath the horizon. It is also regarded as a fundamental source of nourishment to Muslims as they round up their sahur meals to prepare themselves for their daily fast before the crack of dawn.
Touted to be a beneficial superfood, the humble dried fruit is also consumed as a snack and included as a sweetener in many meals and desserts. The tiny date contains a high composition of carbohydrates, minerals, dietary fibre, fatty acids, and amino acids which are highly appreciated in the daily nutritional needs of humans.
In various research studies and findings, the date fruit is noted to significantly possess antioxidants. Compared to other dried fruits such as figs and plums, dates contain the highest polyphenol content which is a type of antioxidant. Other types of antioxidants – vitamins A and K, are also found in high concentrations in dates which are essential in protecting body cells from oxidative damage.
Dates are also a favourable source of potassium which is crucial among all the other necessary dietary minerals needed by the human body. Potassium serves as a vital electrolyte to assist the body to recover after strenuous physical activity. Researches have also found that consumption of the needful amount of potassium is associated with lower risks of stroke, osteoporosis, high blood pressure, and kidney stones.
Iron, another critical mineral; is also found in dates. It serves to help in the formation of red blood cells in human bodies and is necessary in the prevention of anemia. For those who are expecting and those who are breastfeeding their child, the date fruit is the perfect source of nourishment as it is found to increase breast milk production in the early postpartum days.
