Prune juice

Read about this Sunsweet Prune Juice through a magazine and says it's good for pregnant lady (READ HERE). So I bought a bottle to try.

946ml and if I'm not mistaken, it's about RM12 per bottle. The color is exactly like the dried prunes and looks like the Chinese 'koh teh' (苦茶)....

This juice is made from plump with no sugar or artificial preservatives added and is rich in iron and potassium.

Other benefits are:-
-Helps in digestive system
-Lower cholesterol level
-Rich in fiber and helps in constipation issue
-Beneficial to skin cell and brain cell membranes

*More benefits HERE*

The label says it's best enjoyed with ice, blend into fruit drinks or mix with bran muffin recipe. At this point I do not want too much icy stuff so I just drink it in room temperature.

The taste? Well to be honest, I prefer the dried prunes than drinking this juice. It is sour and weird, especially when I'm not drinking it cold. But overall still tolerable to me.

Have you try this?


  1. for your baby's good sake, I think whatever claimed robe good but so untasty you will also eat/drink without hasitation lor, hehe.. :)

  2. Good source of fibre....iron and folic acid supplements make the stools hard....

  3. I'm no fan of sourish drink, but it mentioned about lowering cholesterol level... I think I'm gonna get one bottle then.

  4. Like "ko teh" , if it taste "bad", it must be good LOL..Bon apetit

  14. Prune juice is quite nice actually. I used to buy this for Chloe when she was younger cos she often had constipation problem. I've never tried Sunsweet brand though... I bought the Del Monte one but for the dried prunes, I always buy Sunsweet :)

  15. Kian Fai, no need add water ;)
    I got it from Tesco..
