Plums help increase the absorption of iron into the body, which may be due to the fact that they are a good source of vitamin C. This has been documented in published research. They are also a good source of vitamin B1 (thiamine), B2 (riboflavin), B3 (niacin), B-6, and vitamin E (alpha-tocopherol). The minerals present in them include potassium, fluoride, phosphorus, magnesium, iron, calcium, and zinc. They also supply dietary fiber and offer very low calories without any harmful fats.
1 cup of slice plums (165g) contain 76 calories, 0.5g fat, 19g carbohydrate, 2.3g dietary fibre and 259.1 mg of Potassium.
Plums are packaged in breathable transparent bags allowing them to stay fresh while in storage and also limits human interaction which helps to prevent against food contamination.
