Nutrition Spotlight: Pomegranates

Pomegranates pack a real punch! These ruby gems contain about 600 powerful arils (seeds) with remarkable health benefits including:

  • supporting heart health & lowering blood pressure.
  • warding off diseases like breast and prostate cancer.
  • reducing inflammation & alleviating arthritis and joint pain.
  • fighting bacterial and fungal infections.
  • improving exercise performance.

In case you need more reason to eat pomegranates, they are loaded with important nutrients including vitamins C, K, folate, potassium, and they are a good source of fiber!

To Seed a Pomegranate
  1. Cut the top off the pomegranate about ½ inch below the crown.
  2. Score 4-6 sections divided by the white membrane.
  3. With both hands, carefully pull apart the sections with the pomegranate submerged in a bowl of cool water.
  4. Loosen the perils and allow them to sink. The membrane will float making the separation easier.
