Prunes and some other foods are good sources of vitamins and minerals, including iron. They are derived from dehydrated plums and are nutritious, offering several health benefits.


Prunes have a deep red-brown colour and a chewy texture, distinct from fresh plums. They can last up to six months in the pantry and a year in the fridge.


Prunes originate from Japanese and European plum varieties cultivated by settlers in North America.

Nutritional Content

Prunes are rich in vitamins A, C, K, and B6 and minerals like iron, manganese, copper, and potassium.

Iron Content

Despite being less known for it, prunes are an excellent source of iron, essential for red blood cell production and oxygen transport. Prunes contain approximately 0.37 mg of iron per 1/4 cup serving, providing just 2% of the daily value (DV). Prunes are great additional remedy for iron deficiency.

Medical experts suggest consuming five to six prunes daily to maintain healthy iron levels.

Prune Juice

Prune juice offers a convenient way to increase iron intake, providing 17% of the daily value per cup.


Prunes contribute significantly to meeting nutritional needs and supporting overall health, whether consumed whole or as juice.
