“California prunes have a low-glycemic index meaning a slower rise in blood sugar that increases satiety to delay hunger during exercise,” said Leslie Bonci, registered dietitian, sports nutrition expert and California Prune Board nutrition consultant. “This makes prunes an ideal energy source. California prunes deliver the nutritional clout of macros (carbohydrates and fiber), micros (vitamins and minerals), and phytos (polyphenols). They are neat little bites that add big taste delight.”
