Description

Organic Pitted Prunes are antioxidant powerhouses.

Organic Pitted Prunes are firm and have a full flavour.  Prunes start off similar to fresh plums but the variety grown to be dried into prunes are never referred to as ‘plums’ because they are always destined to be dried into chewy prunes.  Organic prunes are great as a snack but can also be soaked to make a rich compote which is great on porridge.

Just one 56g serving of prunes is high in Vitamin A (beta-carotene), Vitamin K and a source of Potassium and Copper.  You can find a wide range of decadent recipes for your prunes and they combine well with cacao, almond and coffee flavours.

Well known for their bowel stimulating properties but good for so much more, prunes are higher in antioxidants than any other fruit.  Their deep colour signifies a high level of antioxidants, they boast 5700 ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) units per 100g.

Family Tip:

  1. Chopped prunes go really well in muesli and porridge.
  2. Soaked prunes are not just for your Granny’s fridge!  The juice from the soaked fruit is really tasty and good for the bowel.  You can easily blend the remainder into a compote.
