Figs can be part of almost any special diet, be it low fat, low sodium, high fibre, weight loss or diabetic. (Figs are fat-free, sodium-free and, like other plant foods, cholesterol-free.) They satisfy a sweet tooth without adding any fat. Their unique satiny texture and seeds provide a satisfying mouth feel and crunch. (The Assyrians used figs as sweeteners as far back as 3000 BC.) The fruit contains a proteolytic enzyme that is considered an aid to digestion. Because of its high alkalinity, it has been mentioned as being beneficial to persons wishing to quit smoking. So why not get figged!
