Prunes (which are actually just dried plums) are a good source of fiber and are well known for their benefits to digestion, as well as being naturally delicious and snackable.
Plums that grow wild develop a strong sweet-sour taste that is immediately distinctive and naturally delicious. Our raw plums are sourced from the mountain slopes of Samarkand, along the old Silk Road. Then, they’re naturally sun-dried to preserve their flavour and texture. They’re a little less soft than most prunes, but when it comes to flavour and nutrition, they’re the best in the world – if you ask us.
Prunes are high in fiber, which can help reduce issues like constipation and haemorrhoids. They also contain sorbitol, giving them a mild laxative effect – something to keep in mind! They’re also a great source of potassium, niacin, manganese, iron and the mineral boron, which contributes to strong bones and muscles.
The dried fruit can be used in a variety of ways - as a snack between meals, as an exciting addition in mueslis, to make nut and fruit bars or to add a tart note in savoury dishes.
