What exactly is Rotab ?
Dates are the fruit of a palm tree that thrives in hotter regions. Dates have a lot of nutritional benefits. One 100-gram meal contains around 20% of a person’s daily potassium requirements, as well as 7 grams of fiber, 2 grams of protein, and a variety of antioxidants. Copper, manganese, vitamin B6, magnesium, and iron are all abundant in dates.
In Bushehr, unripe dates are referred to as “pahak,” and when they become yellow or red, they are referred to as “kharak,” “khark,” or “kong” and in Arabic, “hababuk”. Of course, it’s also known as Khark in other regions. Rotab is the stage of ripening dates before they are totally ripe when they have more moisture and less sugar than fully ripe dates.
Honeyed Rotab comes from the Dashti and Dashtestan regions of Bushehr province. This fruit can also be found in portions of Khuzestan province, particularly in Behbahan, and parts of Hormozgan province. Kebab dates are grown at Khormoj, Khesht and Kamarj, Qir and Karzin, Farashband, Tabas, and Tangestan, among other places.
What actually is rotab and how is it made?

Most people who are interested in dates are familiar with Rotab Kabkab and are aware of its high quality.

Is there a difference between rotab and dates?
Many individuals mistakenly believe that rotab and dates are the same things. However, there are some distinctions between the two. Date fruit goes through four stages of ripening. Color, taste, and size variations occur during these stages. It is hard and green in color at first, with a bitter and slightly astringent flavor. Its moisture level diminishes as time passes, while its sugar content rises until it is fully ripe. Rotab is the stage before ripeness when there is more moisture and less sugar. The texture of the ripe date grows firmer, and the moisture content decreases.
What are the qualities and properties of rotab?
Honey rotab has a moisture content of 30 to 45 percent. In comparison to dates, the honeyed rotab is soft and silky, with a high likelihood of water penetration. The inside of the rotab has a soft, juicy, and delicate feel. This texture’s color ranges from amber to red, with parts of it being brown. Honey’s high moisture content makes it ideal for quenching thirst. Dates have been shown to improve skin smoothness, and rotab with a big amount of moisture has a twofold effect on the skin. Because Rotab contains less sugar, it is less harmful to diabetics. As a result, diabetic individuals should consume more rotab rather than ripe and sweet dates.
How do you keep honeyed rotab safe?
When compared to ripe dates, Rotab has more moisture and less sugar. This product is more difficult to keep than ripe dates due to the high humidity in Rotab. Because humidity is so sensitive and delicate, it can easily become sour and rotting when combined with this volume of moisture and a small amount of heat. As a result, in cold weather, this product should always be kept in the refrigerator.
Rotab kebab is one of Iran’s most well-known rotabs. Because of its golden tint, this rotab is known as honeyed rotab. Honeyed rotab should be kept at a temperature of -6 to -20 degrees Celsius. This level of cold demonstrates as much as possible Rotab’s severe storage circumstances. Of course, you must keep in mind that storing the product at such a low temperature would obliterate its functional features.
The easiest approach to keep rotab fresh is to store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator (not the freezer). In this instance, a temperature of 3 to 6 degrees Celsius is required. In this situation, the fruit should be consumed within a week to two weeks of purchase, otherwise it will sour and become unusable. Freezing is a good method for long-term storage of this tropical fruit, but it also loses a lot of the fruit’s beneficial compounds. Honey, on the other hand, can only be kept wet for a long time if it is frozen.
