Prunes - Pitted
prunes_pitted_1.jpg

Ingredients: Prunes, potassium sorbate.

Prunes, which are essentially dried plums, are packed with important vitamins and minerals, such as potassium, vitamin A, magnesium and iron, and fibre. While it is common to think of the fibre in prunes as being responsible for their laxative effect, currently the exact substances remain unknown, since prune juice (which has less fibre) also promotes healthy bowel functions.

The Californian variety of prunes is an offshoot of the French d’Agen plum. The size of individual prunes varies with each growing season, but we always strive to offer a large-sized prune.

The pits are removed from whole prunes, making these a popular choice for chopping into baked goods or for soaking into a purée.

Raisins - Thompson, Select

No added ingredients.

History points to 1873 as the year in which raisins first appeared by accident, when a massive heat wave dried the grapes on the vine and farmers were forced to market them or go bankrupt! Ongoing research on raisins shows that they contain an antioxidizing agent which is proving beneficial in the prevention of intestinal tumours and other disease.

To maintain optimum freshness, keep raisins sealed in an airtight container in the refrigerator or in your coolest storage area.
