Plums are a very good source of vitamin C. They are also a good source of vitamins B1, B2, and B6, phenolic compounds, and dietary fiber. A 31/2-oz (100 g) serving is a little less than two plums and provides 46 calories, 0.7 g of protein, 0.3 g of fat, and 11.4 g of carbohydrate, with 1.4 g of fiber, and 9.9 g of natural sugars (glucose, fructose, and sucrose).
