Quick notes on pomegranates:

  • Pomegranate seeds are an excellent source of dietary fiber which is entirely contained in the edible seeds.   To keep your digestive system healthy, you need to include fibre-rich sources in your diet.
  • Separating the seeds is easier in a bowl of water because the seeds sink and the inedible pulp floats.
  • Freezing the entire fruit also makes it easier to separate.
  • Pomegranate has potent anti-inflammatory properties.
  • They are also rich in vitamin C, which boosts antibody production and development of immunity.
  • Polyphenolic compounds in pomegranates are powerful antioxidants that can delay the process of ageing.

Hope you enjoy these delicious treats! We are certainly lining our tummy’s for winter with these!
