Prune juice?

Some prunes

A friend of mine asked this insightful question:

If prunes are dehydrated plums, how come we have prune juice?

Well after consulting with the trusty Mr Google this is what I’ve found:
– Prune juice is NOT a fruit juice
– It is actually a water extract
– They are made by softening the prunes through steaming and then putting them through a pulper to create a watery puree and this is then processed, filtered and put into bottles as “prune juice”.

Personally I don’t remember the last time I had prune juice (or whether I have ever consumed this drink), but they say it’s good for you – especially in the area of excretion.
