Pitted Prunes - 250g
Dried Fruit Organic - Wholefoods
A prune is a dried plum, and whilst it is true that all prunes are plums, not all plums can be prunes. This is because to become a prune, the plum needs to have a soft , thin and sweet skin, and the fruit needs to be full of natural sugar so that is will preserve well when dried. Our prunes come from France and California, and we buy larger prunes to ensure that you get nice soft, naturally sweet fruit. Prunes get a really bad press, mostly from people who have never tried them or whose last experience was a school dinner when the poor things have been stewed to death! If you have never tried a prune, then please do so as they are one of the most popular of all the fried fruits we sell. They have a sweet, rich flavour that is better than any processed sweet.

The combination of fibre, natural sugars, and antioxidants in prunes, as well as their great flavour, make them a superb healthy snack for you. We sell natural dried prunes (moisture content around 23%) and a soft prune (moisture content around 30%), neither contain any artificial preservatives such as Potassium Sorbate, which can be found on conventional prunes. Dried prunes are a good source of fibre and have a strong humectant meaning water absorbing- effect. This means that not only are they good for the digestion, but with the combination of sugars and soluble fibre, they make an excellent fat replacement in baking.
