Dried organic pomegranate arils can be added to both savory and dessert style foods and add a unique and tantalizing flavor to any dish. Pomegranate is a fruit that is very rich in nutrients which makes it quite popular around the world. The fruit is also high in phosphorus, magnesium, calcium, zinc and iron. There is very little fat in a pomegranate and it does not contain cholesterol. Dried organic pomegranate arils naturally contain unsaturated oils, sugar and carbohydrates but there is also a great deal of fiber and some protein in these seeds as well.
Did you know that the arils of just one pomegranate contain enough vitamin C to give you 40% of your daily needs. Vitamin C is extremely important in helping support immune function and aiding in over all health? Another added health benefit of pomegranate arils is that they are an excellent source of fiber which is known to keep your appetite satisfied longer and help in preventing overeating. This in turn helps with weight loss!
