Prunes are ubiquitously known for one thing: their fiber! Prunes are packed with healthy fiber, which not only help ease constipation and keep you regular, but can help protect your intestines and lower your cholesterol. Their soluble fiber also helps normalize blood sugar levels and, despite their sweet, sticky texture, can help prevent and treat type II diabetes.

Selection Process

Be sure to use pitted prunes in your NutriBlasts! Fresh prunes should be plump, shiny, and free of mold. If purchasing dry, be sure they are not processed and free of preservatives. Store them in an airtight container in a cool, dry place.
