Sunsweet’s Prune Puree is a blend of prunes that pass through a fine mesh screen blended with prune juice concentrate. It is available in 55-gallon drums and 5-gallon pails, and is shelf stable at cool storage conditions with no refrigeration needed. Prunes contain high levels of fiber, sorbitol and malic acid. These components allow prunes to function as a fat substitute, inhibit mold development, add humectancy and extend shelf life for many types of baked goods.
Prune puree currently is used as a replacement of fats and oils in bakery products. Prune puree is also used as an added ingredient in drinkable supplements, and as an ingredient in yogurt. Substituting prune puree for some or all of the fat in baking cuts saturated and total fat, while adding beneficial fiber. You can substitute Sunsweet Prune Puree for butter. This swap proves that prunes aren’t just for the elderly! When you replace butter with an equal amount of prune puree, you cut the calories in half, eliminate almost all of the fat and add a little fiber.
Prune puree is also very suitable for moisture retention in sausages and ground protein applications and has been shown to improve flavor in cooked meats by eliminating warmed over flavor (WOM).
Staying close to our customers is important. That’s why Sunsweet Prune Puree can be purchased at most grocery, drug, and club store retailers throughout the world, or at the Sunsweet Gift Shop.
