Prunes (Prunus salicina L.) are dried plums, which are classified as drupes; fruits with a central hard stone pit encasing seeds. They are related to the peach and nectarine and have a sweet, deep flavor and a sticky, chewy texture.
Prunes contain high levels of the phenolic hydroxycinnamic acids, which include neochlorogenic and chlorogenic acids, and they are also rich in anthocyanins, beta-carotene and sorbitol. It is thought that the sorbitol, along with the dietary fiber, are responsible for the prune’s laxative effect. Prunes are a very good source of the trace element boron, and a good source of copper, potassium, phosphorus, magnesium, vitamin K and the B vitamins - riboflavin, niacin and vitamin B6.*
