The total phenol, anthocyanin, total flavonoid contents and mineral contents of the date (Phoenix dactylifera L.) fruits provided from three different countries were determined. While total phenol contents of date fruits change between 12.5 mg GA/ g (Morocco) and 23.3 mg GA/g (Saudi Arabia), anthocyanin contents ranged from 7.3 µmol/g (Iran) to 10.1 µmol/g (Saudi Arabia). While Ca contents of fruits change between 739.28 mg/Kg (Iran) to 1486.95 mg/Kg (Morocco), K contents of samples varied from 8039.28 mg/Kg (Saudi Arabia) to 11025.18 mg/kg (Morocco). While Fe contents of fruits change between 13.13 mg/kg (Saudi Arabia) and 17.00 mg/kg (Morocco), Zn contents were found between 5.57 mg/kg (Iran) and 6.48 mg/kg (Saudi Arabia). In addition, Cu cntents ranged from 2.49 mg/kg (Iran) to 3.48 mg/kg (Saudi Arabia).
