Delicious & nutritious
Earthbound Farm organic dried plums are a good source of fiber, which may help relieve constipation, lower blood cholesterol and regulate blood sugar levels. Dried plums are also bursting with health promoting and protecting antioxidants and other compounds that, as part of a healthy diet, have been linked to a number of potential health benefits. The vitamin A in this dried fruit primarily comes from the conversion of an antioxidant called beta-carotene. Within the context of a healthy diet, beta-carotene may have a role in protecting against certain chronic diseases. Dried plums also pack plenty of energy — try a handful for an afternoon or pre-workout boost!
Why choose organic dried plums?
Imported plums are #22 and domestic plums #37 on the Environmental Working Group's “Shopper’s Guide to Pesticides,” a list of produce that carries the most pesticide residues when grown conventionally. Choosing organic dried fruits is always a good idea, because most conventional dried fruits are fumigated with synthetic chemicals to retard spoilage.
Earthbound Farm organic plums are grown and dried without toxic synthetic chemicals, using sustainable methods that protect the environment and help keep pesticides out of our soil, air, water and food supply. Organic food is the healthiest choice for people and the planet — and we think organic dried plums taste better, too!
