Prune juice is quite obviously the juice made from prunes. Prunes are dried plums. So prune juice is basically just semi-distilled plum juice. I have no idea why this is so much more popular than plum juice.
Ok, after reading the prune node, it appears that prunes aren't just dried plums, but a seperate species of plum, with characteristics that make it easy to dry. However, I'd still rather have plum juice, or just plums, than prune juice.
It is quite likely because most people drink prune juice not as much for the taste, as for it’s nutritional benefits. It is high in vitamin A, potassium, magnesium, fiber, iron, and antioxidants. There are those who believe antioxidants help fight the aging process, and prune juice has the highest concentration of antioxidants in any juice out there. The high fiber also makes it somewhat of a natural laxative. This is why prune juice is often viewed as something only old people drink, which isn’t really true.
