Overview

Many people groan at the aspect of eating prunes, and there is a disdain for the dried fruit. There was so much negativity surrounding the word "prune," that the California Prune Board pressured the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to change the name to "dried plums," which they technically are. After the switch, prune  (or dried plum) sales shot up across the state.

However, there are many ways to consume prunes for those who don't prefer the taste. Prunes are a great addition to your morning to help with your daily digestion. You can simply put them in your oatmeal or throw them in a smoothie. If you are feeling fancy, try baking prune muffins, or use them in a syrup for pancakes. Later in the day, they can be used in a Guinness Stew, in meatloaf, or in a Chicken Marbella with olives.  Prunes are a great food to get creative with when cooking!

Of course, you can snack on prunes the old fashion way. In general, consuming prunes does more than just clear out your digestive system. Prunes are great for improving your cardiovascular health, lowering your cholesterol, improving bone health and preventing diabetes by balancing your blood sugar. Make sure purchase our Real Organic Pitted Prunes, since non-organic prunes are often filled with sulphites and other chemical preservatives in order to improve shelf life.
