The California Dried Plum/Prune Board invites non-binding letters of interest to be submitted by January 4, 2019.

Nutrition research provides the scientific rationale for consumers to include prunes as a nutritious food as part of a healthy dietary pattern and lifestyle. The California Dried Plum/Prune Board invites non-binding letters of interest to be submitted by January 4, 2019 to investigate the role of prunes in bone health. Preference will be given to human intervention studies, but novel mechanistic studies may be considered.  Investigators are to design an innovative approach to expand existing research on the role of prunes in bone health. 

To identify research gaps to be addressed, see the following reviews in the April 2017 special issue in Nutrients on “Dietary Bioactives and Bone Health”:
