Succulent and vibrant with just the right amount of tartness, Angelino Plums are a wonderful treat! Their vibrant color makes them one of the most fun dried fruits out there.
2. Dietary fiber is also classified as a type of plant carbohydrate that is not digested by humans. A serving of five dried plums provide three grams of dietary fiber. These carbohydrates including the sugars are "naturally occurring." There is no added sugar to dried plums.
3. Although dried plums contain carbohydrates, dried plums? main sugars are fructose, glucose and sorbitol. Dried plums have almost no sucrose. In addition, the dietary fiber in dried plums may help to modulate the body?s uptake of sugar in dried plums. The differences in the sugar profiles and the fiber in dried plums may help explain the moderate GI index.
4. Dried plums are a source of dietary fiber, sorbitol, potassium, copper, boron and phenolic compounds which are active in a web of interrelated physiological and health promoting functions. Together these compounds help regulate glucose metabolism, promote cardiovascular health, are involved in bone metabolism, protect against cancer, and contribute to digestion. (M. Stacewicz-Sapuntzakis, PhD., P. Bowen, PhD., RD, University of Illinois Chicago Functional Foods for Health Program literature search. 1999.)
5. Dried plums completely stopped and were able to reverse bone loss in an animal model of ovarian deficiency (a model for post-menopausal osteoporosis). The mechanism responsible for this is not known. Some speculate the mechanism might be related to the phenolic compounds, sorbitol, boron or dried plum?s ability to impact absorption of minerals. (B. Arjmandi, Ph.D., RD, Oklahoma State University, 1998.)v 6. In an animal model using ovariectomzied rats, dried plums suppressed the rise in serum cholesterol without affecting HDL (good) cholesterol associated with the onset of menopause. At menopause, women?s risk for coronary heart disease drastically increases due to ovarian hormone deficiency. Options for lowering cholesterol include a diet rich in plant fiber and other protective nutrients. (B. Arjmandi, Ph.D., RD, Oklahoma State University, 1998.)

“I never write testimonials...HOWEVER.... Nutsonline is incredible. Not only only are they fast as lightning, but they offer the most unusual items. I love the chili mangoes, dried angelino plums, wasabi peanuts, pontefract licorice coins, and have the jerky on order as I write this. I'm thinking that a gift certificate to nutsonline would be a great gift idea for the future.”

“I came here for the diced Papaya and decided to look around to see what else there might be. From there, I ordered also Diced Mango! (Who knew?), Dried Kiwi! and Angelino Plums.
I began eating Angelino Plums when I lived in Calgary AB and was delighted to find them locally in Pocatello. However, that source is intermittent and encouraged me to order from NutsOnline instead. You know what? I have never-never seen Angelino Plums as beautiful as these at NutsOnline.
You have a customer for life *and* I will pass on the word.
Thank you so much for doing what you do so well!”
