Carbs and Fiber
They are a great source of carbohydrates, and a decent amount of dietary
fiber too and when dried as prunes, they are famous for their aid in our
digestive-systems! Just eat two or three a day and you'll be f-i-n-e !
According to Peggy Trowbridge Filippone, from About.com Home
Cooking, prunes have a bad rep with younger folk, and the prune industry
got together and re-named the prunes — hence the name change from
prunes to 'dried plums'!
This dehydrated fruit is great for snacks, muffins, cookies, breads, and granola.
