Label Appeal of Fresh Plums

Functional Benefits of Fresh Plums

For baked goods, plum ingredients not only help replace fats but it adds additional fiber, vitamins and antioxidants. Plums contain naturally benzoate which extends shelf life and can replace commonly used calcium propionate.

For meat products and baked products, plums are high in natural antioxidants and natural anti-microbial agents. Late breaking studies have shown plums have an antimicrobial effect against common meat pathogens including E. coli 0157:H7, Listeria monocytogenes, and Salmonella typhimurium.

The antioxidant effect of plums has also proved its usefulness in helping to prevent Warmed Over Flavor (lipid oxidation off flavors common in pre-cooked meats).  The versatility and effectiveness of fresh plums make them an effective, all natural ingredient for many food product applications.
