Prune プルーン

Prunes are dried plums. They’re often enjoyed as a snack, but prune juice is another popular option.

One cup (240 ml) of prune juice provides:

  • Protein: 1.5 grams
  • Carbs: 45 grams
  • Fiber: 2.5 grams
  • Sugar: 42 grams
  • Iron: 17% of the DV

  • Vitamin B3: 13% of the DV
  • Vitamin B6: 33% of the DV
  • Vitamin C: 12% of the DV
  • Vitamin K: 8% of the DV

Prune juice is high in B vitamins, which play a role in metabolism, DNA and red blood cell production, and skin and eye health.

Furthermore, it’s widely used as a remedy for constipation, especially in older populations. Its fiber content appears to help soften stool and acts as a mild laxative.

It’s also a good source of antioxidants, such as vitamin C and phenolic compounds.

Though prune juice is a natural source of sugar, it’s best to limit your intake to a small glass per day or dilute it with water.
