THE WONDERS OF
California Prunes are naturally nutritious and
GOOD FOR YOUR GUT, AND
NOW FOR YOUR BONES!
California Prunes are famous for their fibre, with 100g daily contributing to normal bowel function.
Now new research has shown they may help to support healthy bones too.
Prunes have zero fat and salt, and contain only naturally occurring sugars, with no added sugar. High in vitamin K, they’re also a source of manganese, both of which support healthy bones. Prunes also contain copper, which helps protect cells from oxidative stress.
Studies have also shown that reducing saturated fat consumption contributes to the maintenance of normal blood cholesterol levels; so it’s good news that prunes are saturated fat-free. In addition, they’re high in potassium, which contributes to the maintenance of normal blood pressure.
California Prunes bring a fresh taste to savoury dishes or a rich and creamy nuance to baked goods. Try them whole, diced, or puréed with proteins and grains, on salads and cereals, and in sauces and sweets.
California Prune growers take care to produce only the biggest, sweetest plums. Then they dry them with precision and care unheard of anywhere else. Every step before, during, and after is a lesson in craftsmanship.
PRUNES. FOR LIFE.
The blossom is over and early fruit has set in. Depending on the crop size, this is a good time for the growers to thin the fruit to increase the number of large fruit on the trees, which can result in a higher value at harvest.
