- Pomegranates are among the world's oldest cultivated fruits.
- In a season where foods are heavy and over indulgent, their crimson jewel-like arils (seeds), which are rich in anti-oxidants, can be an outstanding and festive addition to many side dishes or eaten alone as a snack.
- The anti-oxidant levels in pomegranates far exceed those of both red wine and green tea.
- Pomegranates are a good source of soluble and insoluble fibre.
