What Are Organic Pitted Prunes?
All crinkled and wrinkly, this unassuming fruit is surprisingly packed with fibre and a powerhouse of vitamins and minerals. Prunes are naturally sweet (similarly to figs) as sugar collects on the outside of them during drying and crystalizes, but this (like figs) is a testament of their purity! Many other brands will also use an additive to prevent this crystallization but we believe in consuming food the way nature intended.
A real extra bonus is that these prunes do not need pre-soaking and have of course had their stone removed which makes them much less complicated to eat (we think food generally shouldn't be too complicated to eat as it is!) But prunes are often understated, they are a sensationally healthy fruit to consume on the regular. lets look at why...
Why Should I Get Organic Pitted Prunes?
Prunes are well known for their gentle laxative effect and have a long history of use for such reasons, often recommended to nourish and tone the intestine. This however tends to do a good job of masquerading the many other significant benefits eating prunes will provide.
They are host to a whole load of vitamins and minerals, including potassium, iron, retinol, vitamin K and contain beta-carotene; In fact Just one cup of prunes provides 87% of the recommended daily intake of vitamin K, more than 20% of most B vitamins, 8% of calcium and 27% of potassium, so they really do rank high in terms of nutrition and yet still there is more to discuss.
Its very well known that blueberries have a considerable Antioxidant content, but Prunes actually have more! Researchers from Tufts University in Boston ranked prunes, or dried plums, as #1 food in terms of antioxidant capacity, helped in no small way by its high quantity of plant phenolics.
So there you have it, one of the most impressive set of qualities in a fruit, and its known better for its influence on the bathroom! Typical.
