ANTIOXIDANTS MADE SNACKABLE
Pomegranates have several health benefits. They are high in both fiber and antioxidants. These antioxidants are nutrients that help slow down the damage to our bodies caused by free radicals. Many health problems, such as heart disease and cancer are caused by the oxidative damage from free radicals. A measurement for antioxidants is Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC). Fresh pomegranate arils have a value of 2,860 units per 100 grams and the dried pomegranate arils are able to maintain an impressive 1,860 units per 100 grams.
The seed in the arils is the main source for the fiber and unsaturated oils. The aril juice provides polyphenols, promoting healthy metabolic function. They are also believed to have potential anti-aging effects. Different types of polyphenols include tannins, anthocyanins and ellagic acid. High levels of anthocyanins in the juice give pomegranates their deep color. The abundance of all three polyphenols is what makes pomegranates the “super fruit” it has come to be known as. Pomegranate powder also boasts high levels of phytonutrients. The powder ingredient offers vitamin C, antioxidants, potassium and folate.
Our dried pomegranate arils are shelf stable and contain no sulfites, artificial sweeteners, or preservatives. Looking very similar to its fresh version, the dried arils have terrific piece identity. The superior flavor of our dried arils and pomegranate products will compliment your current products or future innovations.
