Turkish Smyrna Figs — Dried Raw Fruits, Kosher, Vegan, Unsulfured, Unsweetened, Bulk, High in Dietary Fiber and Copper - by Food to Live
Fig, aka Anjeer, is the fruit of the fig tree. This fruit is consumed fresh, dried, or canned. Fresh figs contain up to 1.3% protein and 11.2% sugars. Still, when the fruit is dried, the percentage of proteins increases to 3-6%, as well as sugar - up to 40-50%, which gives dried Turkish figs a deep sweet taste and causes a feeling of satiety. However, keep in mind that dried fruits' calorie content goes up as well, and you might want to plan intake according to your diet.
Also, Dried figs fruit is rich in vitamins and minerals, especially potassium, which is equal to the content in dates. Don't get too excited, though; everything is good in moderation. Although there are no known allergies to this fruit, you might want to consult your nutritionist on what is the right amount for you.

It is even possible to prolong their shelf life to year or year and a half by putting them into the freezer. However, it may influence their taste.
