General Information

Fig paste is a dense, sweet paste made from mashed, softened figs and sugar. Fig paste may be spread on toast, used as a sweetener in tea, or eaten as an appetiser, similar to fruit preserves. It can also be used to add flavour and texture to sauces and pastry recipes. Grocery stores occasionally sell jarred fig paste. This tasty treat can also be made at home by those who have fig trees or extra figs at home.

Fig paste tastes just like Figs with a softer texture similar to a jam but less sweet. Fig paste is often confused with fig jam, they are very similar but the main difference between them is the sweetness and the amount of sugar and Figs in them. Fig paste contains less sugar and more ground Figs, on the other hand, Fig jam has fewer Figs and more sugar.

Health Benefits

Fig paste is a nutritive, wonderful snack for both the body and mind, as well as a beneficial food remedy for common diseases. Some studies have shown that fig paste helps speed the movement of food through the digestive tract, relieving constipation and improving overall health.

There are numerous health benefits of Fig paste that we can enjoy if we begin using it. It has the same health benefits as the Fig itself:

  1. It can improve your Skin Health

According to a study published in the Indian Journal of Pharmaceutical Sciences, fig paste can help with skin melanin and transepidermal water loss. It can also help with skin hydration and sebum production. Figs are high in flavonoids and polyphenols, both of which are antioxidants that may help prevent free radical damage. They contain a high concentration of alkanes and, as a result, can aid in the regulation of the body’s ph.

The existence of vitamins B and C has an antioxidant impact, which contributes to the skin’s youth and firmness. Some components of this fruit contain anti-inflammatory properties that aid in the prevention of inflammation, such as acne.

  1. It Prevents Cardiovascular diseases

Figs have a high potassium content and a low sodium content. This mineral contains essential fatty acids, which aid in the reduction of blood pressure and the maintenance of heart pressure, thus preventing the onset of certain cardiovascular diseases, such as hypertension.

  1. Contributes to digestive health

As we all know, figs are rich in soluble fibres and pectin, making them an excellent fruit for regulating and maintaining proper digestive system work. Its mild laxative effect ensures that toxins are eliminated regularly.

  1. Figs are a Natural Source of Energy

Using fibre regularly can also help to control energy levels. Since the fig is naturally rich in fibres and sugars, it is an excellent fruit for preventing exhaustion and providing the energy required to recover from a workout. Its fibre content also leads to a sense of fullness and losing weight.

Best Ways to Use Fig Paste

Fig paste pairs well with cheeses and other fruits, in addition to making a tasty jam. Pita chips or seeded crackers, fig paste, and brie, feta, mozzarella, and even ricotta cheese may all be included on a basic appetiser platter. Spreading the cheese on a cracker or chip and covering it with fig paste and a thin apple or pear slice normally results in a delicious pre-dinner snack that can help stimulate the appetite.

Fig paste will be an excellent replacement for any recipe that calls for sugar. If you own an ice cream shop, fig-flavoured sweets can be a healthy alternative to traditional treats. The mixture may be a little gooey, but it will look nice spread on a bran muffin. It can also be spread on bread, pancakes, or sandwiches.

Fig paste works well as a binding agent in waffles and cereal bars. It can also be used as a foundation for puddings. Aside from helping with taste, it can be used to add colour to baked goods. Fig syrup can be used to relieve constipation and sweeten hot beverages such as tea and coffee.

Serving and Portion Size

Although Fig paste has a lot of health benefits, excessive consumption of it can lead to overeating and can have some side effects on your health and weight. Just try to use it in moderation and enjoy its vast advantages. Also, some people may be allergic to figs, so they better not consume this paste.

Storage

Try to keep the fig paste in an airtight container in a cool dry place and away from direct sunlight. The best option would be to store it in the fridge or freezer.
