Health Benefits of Pomegranate Powder
1) Antioxidant Strength: Organic pomegranate powder is an excellent source of potent antioxidants like flavonoids and polyphenols, which reduce oxidative damage to cells caused by harmful free radicals. This protective capacity of antioxidants makes them an excellent defence against premature aging and chronic diseases related to the cardiovascular system.
2) Protects the Heart: The rich antioxidant levels in pomegranates may reduce the risk factors for heart disease. A 2013 study published in the journal Atherosclerosis found that drinking water with pomegranate extract for two weeks reduced plaque thickening in the coronary arteries of mice predisposed to atherosclerosis. Other studies suggest that drinking pomegranate juice may also reduce the hardening of the arteries and improve blood flow to the heart.
3) Immunity-Boosting: Rich in vitamins and minerals, pomegranate powder supports your body’s natural defense system so that you can fight off colds and illnesses. Pomegranate powder is particularly high in vitamins C and K; vitamin C protects the eyes and helps us heal faster, while vitamin K maintains healthy blood clotting and supports strong bones. Pomegranates are also a good source of protective minerals like calcium, potassium, magnesium, and phosphorous.
How to Enjoy Pomegranate Powder

It can be added to a wide variety of dishes to give them an extra kick: salads, meats, guacamole, gravy, smoothies, yogurt, cereal, and desserts, to name a few. You can also use organic pomegranate powder to make pomegranate juice and pomegranate tea.
Cultures throughout history have used pomegranate seeds, pomegranate juice, and pomegranate powder in their foods. In particular, pomegranate powder is pervasive in Indian cuisine, where it is known as anardana and is used as a souring agent in many curries, chutneys, and meat dishes.
Made from Pomegranates
The pomegranate is native to central Asia and has been prized by civilizations since ancient times. It is a red fruit, full of hundreds of seeds surrounded by a red, juicy pulp called aril. Because of its numerous seeds, the pomegranate is a symbol of fertility and abundance in many cultures, and it has also served as a symbol of love, righteousness, royalty, and immortality. Our organic pomegranate powder is made from pomegranate aril, giving it a fruity flavor that packs a punch.
