Plum season is here! During August, September and October you can find a variety of plums everywhere around Norway, red, yellow, purple or blue. Did you know that plums have been growing in Norway since the 16th Century? No wonder they are a favourite of many people.
In Norwegian, the word for plum is ‘’plommer’’, not so different from English, right?
Did you know that plums are a natural laxative? Yes, because of their natural fibre, both soluble and insoluble. They also have an antioxidant, dihydroxy phenyl isatin, which stimulates our intestines, contributing to our bowel movements.
Plums boost our overall health. They are a great source of vitamin A, beta carotene, responsible for better vision, as well as many other nutrients, like vitamins B, C, phosphorus, etc.
