The California Prune Board, under the authority of the California Secretary of Food and Agriculture, represents the entire 900 prune plums growers and 29 prune packers of California, which is the largest producer of prunes in the world. Prunes from California are widely recognised for their superior quality due to the regions’ rigorous harvesting techniques and stringent quality control assessments.
The California Prune Board will be exhibiting at Food Matters Live to showcase the nutritional/health benefits and unsurpassed quality of prunes grown and produced by the expert growers and producers of California. California Prunes are available in a range of formats representing a convenient and versatile ingredient suitable for a variety of food manufacture applications. Incorporating prunes as an inclusion can help reduce sugar and fat content, while also adding flavour, moisture and texture to a product.
Leading the way in supporting world class, cutting edge research on the extensive health and nutrition benefits associated with incorporating prunes in the diet, The California Prune Board’s investment into nutritional research was rewarded with an European Commission health claim in 2013, which confirms that eating 100g prunes daily has a beneficial effect on normal bowel function. As the natural industry authority and category leader, California Prunes remains committed to working with scientists to verify further important health claims.
