Organic Plums (No Pit)
Enjoy dried organic plums without the pit. Also known as organic prunes, this all natural treat contains no added sweeteners or preservatives. An excellent source of dietary fiber, antioxidants, and nutrients, these organic prunes are a delicious and healthy snack. They are certified organic by CCOF.
Delicious Ways to Enjoy Organic Plums
Organic plums are absolutely delicious for snacking on straight out of the bag, but if you want to mix things up, try one of these yummy ideas!
Baked Goods - Whole dried plums can be added to cakes, scones and breads for extra moisture and sweetness. Chop them up and add them to homemade energy bars, muffins, cupcakes, and more for a delicious fruity flavor.
Side Dishes - Organic plums can also be chopped up and added to rice, couscous, quinoa and other grain dishes for extra flavor and texture. For an easy, yet exquisite appetizer, wrap these pitted prunes in prosciutto and bake for several minutes. Your guests will find the savory-sweet taste irresistible! Organic prunes are also a delicious addition to stuffing.
Meats - Prunes pair well with many meat dishes; their sweet flavor especially complements the smoky flavor of turkey, pork, chicken, and duck. Marinade and roast your choice of meat with prunes to retain moisture and lend natural sweetness.
Health Benefits of Organic Plums
1) High in Fiber - Organic dried plums are a plentiful source of dietary fiber. The great thing about plums is that they contain adequate amounts of both soluble and insoluble fiber. Soluble fiber limits the levels of sugar and cholesterol absorbed by the bloodstream, which helps regulate blood sugar and may reduce LDL “bad” cholesterol.
The insoluble fiber in organic prunes is essential for a healthy digestive system. Insoluble fiber adds bulk to the diet and is one reason why organic plums are an effective remedy for constipation. This fiber also keeps us feeling full longer, and is a great aid for weight loss because it can prevent overeating later in the day.
2) Powerhouse of Antioxidants - Organic prunes are a treasure trove of antioxidants, the compounds that protect against oxidative damage caused by free radicals. Free radicals build up in the body because of exposure to everyday toxins; they are associated with chronic conditions like heart disease, stroke, and other degenerative diseases. Rest assured, some of this harmful damage can be reversed by eating foods rich in antioxidants. Dried plums contain even more antioxidants than fresh plums, blueberries, or raisins, according to a study by Tufts University.
3) Packed with Nutrients - As if we needed more reasons to fall in love with organic plums, they are also a good source of vitamins A and K, potassium, magnesium, and boron. Eating prunes may be a preventative measure against osteoporosis, a disease in which the bones become thinner and more fragile. This benefit may in part be due to the presence of boron, a trace element that supports bone and joint health. A study from Florida State University suggests that eating 100 grams of dried plums every day for three months can improve bone formation markers. A delicious treat that offers so many health benefits? We’ll take it!

“These are so delicious and satisfying. They're not too sweet, like some of the more mainstream brands of prunes can be. I also love that they're organic and will be ordering these again.”
Barbara, Ocean Shores, WA May 29, 2011
“I love the organic plums, the organic milk chocolate covered raisins, the organic butterscotch candy and the sample of the dried strawberries. That is all I have sampled so far. The quality is the greatest, it has eye appeal and very tasty. I am very happy that I found your website.”

“Crazy-Fast how you turn around those orders. Nobody processes orders faster than you do, and the quality of everything I order is top-notch. Plus some of your organic products cost no more than the store-bought non-organic variety. Customer service is alive and well at nutsonline - thanks!”
Randy, W. Bloomfield, Michigan March 30, 2011
“I ordered quite a bit as a first-timer, and was thrilled with the experience: high quality products, expertly packed for safe, stay-fresh storage, and reasonable pricing. I was even able to pick when the shipment would be sent so I could arrange for someone to be home to receive it! And did I mention how great everything tastes? Every food business should be run like NutsOnline! Thanks!”
Sallie, Wallingford, PA March 29, 2011
“Once again, my order arrived within 48 hours! Such impressive service on such hard to find items. I make organic baby food for my grandchildren. Organic dried plums are impossible to find locally. Nuts Online might as well be my local store! I am also making organic granola with your oats, cherries & coconut. Thanks again.”

“I have been a customer of yours for several years now, all of the products that I have ordered have been excellent! They are also delivered promptly. I have just tried the dried California prunes (plums), and they are excellent. There is no comparing these with the sticky, gooey processed prunes that are found in most grocery stores. From here on, I am purchasing my prunes from you folks. Keep up the great work!”
Bo, USR, NJ January 5, 2010

“Loved the California organic prunes. They are like the old-fashioned meaty dried prunes I remember. None of that slimy, processed commercial brand stuff.”
