Description


Mountain-grown Mediterranean pomegranate concentrate
Natural source of punicalagin and ellagic acid
Twice the ORAC value of other brands
PomaMAX is the only 100% natural, mountain-grown Mediterranean pomegranate concentrate available. All other sources are derived from commercial pomegranates. This is the original pomegranate concentrate, made by the same old-fashioned methods used for centuries. Notice the exceptional naturally tart taste and aroma of this pomegranate concentrate. Pomegranate is one of the top sources of the potent flavonoids punicalagin and ellagic acid. It is richer by weight in antioxidants than virtually all other fruit and vegetables.

Give Old Favorites a New Twist with Pomegranate

Give Old Favorites a New Twist with Pomegranate
Give Old Favorites a New Twist with Pomegranate: Main Image
The pomegranate's sweet-tart taste, ruby color, and many little seeds can add flavor and crunch to a wide variety of dishes
A symbol of fertility and rebirth, the rich ruby pomegranate has been featured in art, literature, and mythology for centuries. But that's ancient history. Today the versatility of the flavorful fruit is inspiring chefs-from the family kitchen to four-star restaurants.

Dress up any dish

Each pomegranate contains hundreds of tiny seeds encased in juice-rich ruby pulp. Devin Alexander, a chef and author of The Most Decadent Diet Ever (Broadway Books, 2008), suggests adding seeds to a salad and using the juice to make salad dressing. "The seeds are also great to add natural sweetness to black rice and whole grain pilaf dishes," she notes.

The pomegranate's sweet-tart taste, ruby color, and many little seeds can add flavor and crunch to a wide variety of dishes. Sprinkle seeds into soup or add to baked goods. For a fresh twist to an old standby, add a tablespoon of the juice and three tablespoons of seeds to guacamole. Or try Alexander's favorite use of the fruit, a variation on the traditional Purple Cow ice cream soda. "I love making Pomegranate Cows. I use pomegranate juice and vanilla frozen yogurt instead of grape juice and ice cream for a much healthier treat."

Why pick pomegranate?

You'd be hard pressed to find a healthier treat than the pomegranate. It's filled with nutrients and loaded with antioxidants. Research indicates that it can help lower blood pressure, reduce LDL (bad) cholesterol, prevent the cartilage damage that leads to osteoarthritis, slow progression of prostate cancer, and protect the arteries from plaque buildup. So isn't it time to try this superfood?

Picking and prepping

Look for fruit that is heavy for its size (and therefore juice-filled) and has bright, unblemished skin. When refrigerated in a plastic bag, pomegranates will keep for up to two months. Loose seeds can be refrigerated for up to three days, or frozen in single layers on trays and in airtight containers for up to six months. Juice can be refrigerated for up to three days, or frozen for up to six months. To prepare the fruit fresh:

  • Cut the crown end off the pomegranate, and then lightly score the skin from top to bottom in quarters.
  • Immerse the fruit in a bowl of cool water and soak for a minute or two. Then break sections apart.
  • Seeds will sink to the bottom of the bowl; rind and membrane will float. Skim off and discard the rind and membrane. Scoop up and drain seeds, and then pat dry.

And if that's too much trouble, let someone else do the work: shop for 100% pomegranate juice.
