Our organic dried pitted prunes are impressively high in nutrients. They contain over 15 different vitamins and minerals, in addition to fiber and antioxidants.

Not a fan of prunes? You're not alone. In the US, a research found women of ages 25-54 to react negatively to the idea of prunes, so the California Prune Board pressured the Food and Drug Administration to change the name of prunes to the more inviting "dried plums". And it worked! Prunes are basically plums that have been dried naturally in the sun without undergoing any fermentation process.

Prunes are well known for their ability to relieve constipation. This is partly due to the high amount of fiber in prunes. The fiber in prunes is mostly insoluble, which means it does not blend with water. It plays a role in preventing constipation by adding bulk to your stool and may speed up the rate that waste moves through your digestive tract.

Prunes do not cause diarrhea unless you eat over 1/4–1/2 cup (44–87 grams) per day. That is a lot of dried prunes!

General Storage Tips:

• Nothing beats vacuum sealing for freshness.
• Store below 15°C and < 65% humidity.
• Store in the dark as light degrades flavors.
• Mason jars make great storage containers.
• Can be frozen to prolong shelf life.
