Culinary use
Davidsons Plums have an exquisitely sour plum flavour that makes your lips pucker when eaten raw! As it is difficult to find the Davidsons Plum fresh, unless you are lucky enough to live in the regions it grows in, we have developed a freeze-dried concentrated powder that is intensely flavoured and acidic - a little goes a long way. 

Our concentrated Davidson's Plum powder has a wonderful plum sherbet flavour that can be used in many culinary applications . Deliciously sharp plum sherbet- isn't it great when something that is so good for you actually tastes so good!

Sprinkle a little over your breakfast yoghurt and fruit or add to a smoothie, try it  muesli or sprinkle over porridge. You can add it to a fresh seafood ceviche where it's perfect tartness helps pickle the fish while adding its tangy deliciousness. This tart and tangy flavour is beautiful sprinkled over cakes or add to cream, its wonderful in creamy desserts like panna cotta or ice-cream. Or just a little sprinkle over the top as it looks pretty, tastes great and is good for you!  

Health Benefits of Davidson's Plum fruit
Jam packed with antioxidants, it's greatest asset is its nutritional profile. This is an extract from Rural Industries Research Development Corporation report 
'Davidson plum contains high levels of anthocyanins, natural pigments that are strong antioxidants. Its antioxidant capacity is higher than the blueberry, which is renowned worldwide as the ‘health-promoting fruit The substantial amount of antioxidants found in Davidson plum compared to other fruit and vegetables means consumers are able to eat smaller amounts and still receive the equivalent nutritional benefits. Antioxidants are believed to hold a number of benefits for human health, potentially preventing and delaying diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease, autoimmune and cardiovascular disease, cancer, and diabetes. Davidson plum is a good source of potassium and also contains lutein (a compound that plays an important role in eye health and wellbeing), vitamin E, folate, zinc, magnesium and calcium. The skin of the Davidson plum contains the majority of the nutrients, so it is recommended to consume the fruit in full for all the benefits. Due to its intense colouring, Davidson plum can act as a natural food colour without the use of preservatives and additives.'
Davidson's Plum Superfruit Powder is a concentrated form of this already incredibly nutrient rich fruit, providing: 
  • a great source of Vitamin A  with active phytochemicals known as Carotenoids and these help protect us against certain cancers, heart disease and age related macular degeneration
  • more lutein than an avocado (known as the benchmark for a high lutein level). Lutein is one of those important carotenoid vitamins that is so  important for healthy eyes. And Lutein can help reduce the effect of blue light that affects our iris and can lead to macular degeneration as well as acting as an anti- inflammatory.
  • high levels of anthocyanins (another powerful antioxidant found in red fruits) and this antioxidant helps fight the damaging free radials that can affect cognitive function and lead to dementia diseases, and some cancers. In fact the Davidson's Plum has about 25% more anti-oxidant activity than Blueberries! 
  • an excellent source of potassium that is important for nerve and heart health
  • A good source of Vitamin E and zinc that helps our skin look it's best.
  • A unique dairy-free source of calcium.
  • Contains properties believed to have anti-diabetic effects and a capacity to reduce hypertension and obesity.
