Product information

Plums contain plenty of pectin, fibre, antioxidants, polyphenols and vitamins A, B1, C, E and B6 and are a valuable source of iron, phosphorus, calcium and magnesium. Plums counteract arteriosclerosis and due to high content of potassium impede absorption of harmful cholesterol and regulate blood pressure.
Pectin and fibre contained in plums boost metabolism and regulate intestinal peristalsis, which mitigates the risk of bowel cancer.

Plums are usually consumed raw. In addition, they are perfect for preserves: jams, confitures, damson jams and fruit cordials. They can also serve as meat additive, ingredient of cakes, salads, desserts and ice-cream. Dried plums are a healthy snack and additive to meat dishes. Also pickled plums are popular.
A specific alcohol produced from plums is slivovitz.
