Binomial Name：Prunus domestica
Other Names：Prunes | pruneau d'Agen
Product Description：It is a type of dried plum, the most common being the European plum (Prunus Domestica). Not all plum species or cultivars can be dried into plums. Plums are hard-fleshed fruits (plums) of the Prunus variety that have a high soluble solids content and do not ferment during drying. "Plum" is now used for dried plum varieties.
Prunes contain 64% carbohydrates, including dietary fiber, 2% protein, a rich source of vitamin K, and moderate amounts of B vitamins and dietary minerals. The sorbitol content of dietary fiber may provide the laxative effects associated with prune consumption.

#Should Be / Avoided：
Recent research shows that plums are the most effective fruit in preventing and even reversing bone loss. Several experiments on animals and humans have shown that plums are beneficial in preventing osteoporosis. Bone mineral density in ovariectomized rats decreases 15 unless they are fed high doses of prunes. In another experiment, female rats with reduced bone mass for 40 days after ovariectomy were fed plums at varying proportions. They restore bone mineral density and reverse disturbances in trabecular bone microarchitecture at a rate of only 5%. A clinical study in postmenopausal women showed that consuming 50 grams of prunes for six months prevented loss of bone mineral density in the hips16.

In addition, the water-soluble dietary fiber pectin contained in prunes is a food for beneficial bacteria, which helps improve the intestinal environment and prevent/improve constipation.
Cooking Skills：They can be added whole or in chunks to sauces, cakes (clafoutis, Far Breton cakes, biscuits, muffins, puddings, etc.), white cheese. They can also be served as an aperitif, surrounded by a slice of bacon (pierced with an olive skewer) and then placed in the oven.
In North African, Middle Eastern, and Iranian cuisine, prunes are often used with lamb (such as Moroccan tagine). To shorten the cooking time, you can soak the plums in water, juice or alcohol. If they are too dry, soak them in boiling water, then drain and pat dry before using.
You can easily pit plums by hand. Just knead it for a few seconds to soften it. We can then extract the core without pulp through simple pressure.
Notes：Prunes and prune juice contain phytochemicals, including phenolic compounds (mainly neochlorogenic acid and chlorogenic acid) and sorbitol.
Sorbitol is very potent and is sometimes used as an ingredient in laxatives and purgatives.
The almonds in the prune pits contain a toxic substance: hydrocyanic acid. This is why we can eat almonds, but only in small amounts.

Apple is a good snack fruit, because they have low calories, high water content, and provide a large amount of vitamin A, B and C.
