Earthbound Farm Organic Plums are an excellent source of vitamin C and a good source of vitamin K, which helps the body produce blood-clotting proteins and is important for bone health.
A great way to absorb iron from plant sources, like spinach, is to eat it with a food high in vitamin C, like plums. Try making a plum dressing to drizzle over a spinach salad, or use it with other produce that contains iron. Vitamin C also promotes wound healing, supports the immune system, helps keep skin healthy and acts as an effective antioxidant that may play a role in reducing the risk of certain chronic diseases. Other antioxidants found in plums are being studied for their links to potential health benefits.
Why choose organic plums?
Imported plums are #20 on the Environmental Working Group's “Shopper’s Guide to Pesticides in Produce,” a list of produce that carries the most pesticide residues when grown conventionally. So choosing organic plums makes sense — especially for children, whose growing bodies are so much more susceptible to environmental chemical exposures than adults’.
At Earthbound Farm, we grow our organic plums without toxic synthetic pesticides and fertilizers, using sustainable farming 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 plums taste better, too!
WhatsOnMyFood.org from the Pesticide Action Network shows you searchable results for fruits like plums and a wide range of other organic and conventional foods. It’s an easy-to-use and empowering tool for learning about pesticide residues and their health effects for all of us.
