Plums Compete with Blueberries
A New Superfood is Revealed
Plums are an emerging star in the superfood world, giving champion blueberries a run for their money. According to scientists at Texas AgriLife Research, plums and other stone fruits, like peaches and nectarines, sport high levels of health-promoting nutrients, such as disease-preventing antioxidants and other plant compounds that make them equally nutritious.
The cost of stone fruits is relatively low. Plus, plums have an additional benefit: While most people tend to eat a few blueberries at a time, sprinkled into breakfasts or desserts, they generally will eat a whole plum at once.
