These green plums, that spring fruit which won’t be around for a long time, are initially the early pick of yellow plums. They are characterized by their taste and occupy a place of excellence amongst young people who love to savor them after sprinkling them with a strand of salt.
It is well known that green plums are low in calories and can be a good choice for a healthy and tasty snack. One serving of green plums equals about 10 pieces. However, we must always be vigilant not to add too much salt in order to avoid the harmful effects of salt and its negative impact on our health.
Green plums provide us with lots of nutritional benefits. They are rich in water, fibres and antioxidants (such as flavonoids), and they contain many vitamins (including vitamin C and vitamin A) and several minerals (potassium, magnesium, phosphorus, manganese, copper).
Finally, green plums may be efficient for boosting intestinal transit, provided that we don’t abuse of these so that we avoid any eventual diarrhea or gastrointestinal discomfort, as this fruit is rich in dietary fibres.
