Nutritional values

Pomegranates (also known as grenadines) contain a particularly large number of highly effective polyphenols, which are secondary plant active ingredients. Various studies suggest that pomegranates can have a positive effect on cardiovascular diseases or even arthritis and some types of cancer - however, the final proof is still pending.

The harvest period for the fruit cultivated in the Mediterranean and the Middle East is from September to December. Buy only ripe fruit, because pomegranates do not ripen!
