The powerful chemical composition of prunes provides a multitude of processing benefits for food manufacturers.
The interplay of sorbitol, fiber, antioxidants, and malic acid found in Sunsweet Prune ingredient products may provide moisture binding properties, shelf life extension properties, antimicrobial properties, flavor enhancement properties, and fat replacement properties not found in other high valued food ingredient products.

In the universe of high valued ingredients, prunes are unique for their healthy image, processing benefits, and great taste.
