There are three main categories of dates: soft, semi-soft, and dry.
Here are some varieties of dates:
Barhi dates: Named for the hot Arabic winds called “Barh,” these dates are medium-sized, thin-skinned fruit with soft, tender flesh and a syrupy flavor.
Deglet Noor dates: A semisoft date, deglet noor is the variety most often available and accounts for 95 percent of U.S. production. It has firm flesh and a color range from light red to amber.
Halawy dates: These soft dates are thick-fleshed, caramely, and sweet. Their appearance is wrinkled and the skin ranges from yellow to amber.
Khadrawy dates: Similar to the Halawys, these soft dates have a caramel-like texture and sweet flavor.
Medjool dates: These semisoft dates, sometimes called the Cadillac of dates, are sweet, moist, meaty, and firm-textured.
Thoory dates: This is a dry date with firm skin and chewy flesh.
Zahidi dates: The Zahidi, a semisoft date, is called “Nobility.” It has a large seed and crunchy fibrous flesh, and is often processed for sliced dates and date sugar products.
Medjool Dates are often considered the finest of all date varieties. They are much larger than other types of dates and are soft, creamy, and sweet.
Medjool dates are loaded with calories, carbohydrates, proteins and no fat. The sugar in them is usually glucose, fructose and traces of sucrose and maltose. Medjool dates have a great amount of dietary fiber, supplying you with 27% of the recommended daily allowance. Their soluble fiber is important in regulation of blood sugar as well as levels of cholesterol. Notably, the beta-D-glucan in Medjool dates aids in water absorption hence adding bulk to stool. This prevents constipation. Medjool dates contain more potassium than other known mineral to man. Potassium assists in balancing body pH, maintaining intracellular fluid balance as well as blood sugar regulation. Deficiency in this mineral could cause elevated blood pressure hence the 20% RDA comes handy.
