The fig is a fruit of the Moraceae family, known since ancient times throughout the Mediterranean basin. According to legend, it was the god Saturn who discovered it and the Hellenes ate it in his honor during the annual celebrations of Saturnalia. For the philosopher Plato and his disciples, figs were the favorite delicacy, which is why they were called the “food of the philosophers”. Galen, one of the fathers of medicine, said that figs were the staple food for athletes participating in the Olympics, and the great Hippocrates recommended them in acute feverish states. The ripe fig is very digestive because it contains a special substance called cradin and is an excellent tonic for people who make physical or intellectual efforts. Therefore, figs are recommended for children, adolescents and young people, athletes, intellectuals and pregnant women.
