The Nutrition Advisory Panel
The California Prune Board established a nutrition advisory panel in 1997 and continues to lead the way in supporting scientifically rigorous research on the nutritional and health benefits of incorporating California Prunes into the diet. Key areas of research include digestive health, bone health, managing hunger/satiety and microbial changes in the gut. Research indicates prunes may be one of the most valuable foods to be top of mind when describing healthful eating patterns.
The Nutrition Advisory Panel helps identify nutrition research priorities for the California Prune Board. The distinguished members of the panel represent expertise in the areas of women’s health, general dietary guidance, dietary fibre, digestive health, nutrition and physical activity, nutrition, and immunity, antioxidant research, and food science.
