Prunes are a rich and honey flavoured fruit that have more to offer than a simple digestive aid. Sweet and aromatic, pitted prunes are an excellent source of antioxidants with 2 to 3 times more antioxidant power when compared with fresh prunes. When dried, prunes change their chemical composition and offer more a concentrated level of nutrients. Prunes are often referred to as a laxative since they are very high in digestive fibre and many different vitamins and minerals that aid intestinal transit. Prunes have been associated with good cardiovascular health as well as prevention of osteoporosis. With only 5 prunes each day you can correct iron deficiency!
