Cultivated for more than 4,000 years, the dried fruit of the jujube tree, known scientifically as Ziziphus jujuba, is a pectoral fruit similar to dates and figs. In China, where jujube originated, practitioners of traditional medicine have long prized the jujube for its medicinal properties. Once confined largely to China, the fruit now grows in many areas of the world, including southern Europe and the southern United States. Consult your doctor before using dried jujube or any herbal remedy. Rich in carbohydrates, dried jujube fruits contain a broad array of vitamins and minerals, according to MDidea.com, the website of a Chinese company that specializes in herbal extracts. Calories in 100 g of dried jujube total 350; the dried jujubes contain 84 g of carbohydrates, 7.3 g of protein, 4 g of dietary fiber and 1.2 g of fat. The fruit also contains roughly 300 mg of vitamin C, 125 mg of vitamin A, 2.8 mg of niacin, 0.2 mg of riboflavin, 0.1 mg of thiamine, 1,050 mg of potassium, 168 mg of phosphorus, 130 mg of calcium, 12 mg of sodium and 3.5 mg of iron. Dried jujube also contains a wide variety of antioxidant-rich phytochemicals, including saponins and flavonoids.
