Useful properties

Prunes contain a large amount of vitamins (E, beta-carotene, PP, C and B group vitamins), microelements (iron, potassium, calcium, sodium, magnesium, phosphorus, cobalt, iodine, zinc, fluorine, manganese, copper) and other useful substances (sugar, pectins, organic acids, starch, carbohydrates and proteins).

The best prunes are those that are dried naturally, without peeling and glycerin treatment. Only ripe, juicy and sweet fruits are suitable for drying, because only ripe plums have the highest healing properties.
