California Prunes are good for your gut, and your bones.
California Prunes are big on “no” – like no added sugar (just naturally occurring sugars), no salt, and no fat. And that makes it easy (and smart!) to say “yes” to the tasty fruit. Plus, they offer a sweet, delectable taste for snacks, and are ideal at breakfast, lunch or dinnertime too.
High in fibre, and with a low GI of 29, California Prunes can be enjoyed as part of a varied and balanced diet, and a healthy lifestyle, with many benefits as outlined below:
No Sugar Added
With fewer than 100 calories per serving (4 to 5 prunes – 38g), California Prunes provide a satisfyingly sweet taste with no added sugar, and contain naturally-occurring fructose and glucose but almost no sucrose. They also contain sorbitol, a sugar alcohol which is slowly and poorly absorbed into the gut, and which provides a good medium in which desirable intestinal micro-organisms can be produced.
