A NATURAL SUGAR SUBSTITUTE

Prunes have been proven to provide

a healthy and natural replacement for

some of the processed sugars in sweet

dishes and can even be used to sweeten

coffee. Called 'nature's candy' in the US,

and in Italy 'sugar prune', the wrinkly

fruits are an easy substitute for sugar

and can be used in many different ways

to add natural sweetness to recipes.

When blended into a puree, prunes can

be used to sweeten cakes, pastries and

biscuits and used like a jam to sweeten

yoghurt and porridge or spread on bread

or toast.

In recent testing the sugar content of

seven recipes was reduced and replaced

with prune puree producing sugar

reductions between 27% and 35%, with

no compromise on texture and flavour.

Consultant Dietitian Jennette Higgs

comments, "Too much added sugar

in our diet is likely to be hindering our

efforts to reduce calories, since much of

this sugar is hidden. The sugar provided

in whole fruits is not a problem as this is

in a form that is much more filling and

more slowly digested in the body. People

should not be put off eating whole fruits

either fresh or dried, in their quest to

reduce sugar intake."

Esther Ritson-Elliott, California Prune

Board's European marketing director

adds, "The great bonus with prunes is

the fact that they tend to taste sweeter

than their fresh counterparts and being

convenient to carry around, offer a perfect

alternative to processed snack foods that

tend to be high in refined sugar, fat and

salt. The fact that prunes can now also

be used as a puree to reduce the sugar

content of many recipes is a breakthrough

in the fight against added sugar."

Simply plums with the water removed,

prunes contain only natural sugars and

retain their nutrients and are naturally

fat-free and a high source of fibre. Three

prunes is one of your five-a-day.
