Obesity is the result of many eating and lifestyle issues. While many food label claims have been and continue to be introduced by food processors, "no/low/reduced fat" remains the leading nutritional label claim.

Prune’s fiber, sorbitol and malic acid serve as a natural fat replacer in baked goods and confections. Meat and poultry processors as well as foodservice operators can also use extra-lean meats and even lesser quality cuts to reduce fat that benefit from the moisture-binding and flavor-enhancing abilities of prunes.
