Japanese researchers recently discovered that pomegranates are rich in phytoestrogens, and particularly in oestrone. Oestrone is a mildly effective oestrogene similar to the female sex hormone. The pomegranate also contains large amounts of vitamin A, C, potassium and antioxidants. The pomegranate stimulates the body, having beneficial effects in cases of chronic fatigue, listlessness, infections and inflammation. The pomegranate contains high levels of antioxidants and secondary plant substances such as polyphenols (flavonoids, tannins).
Pomegranate Apricots have a high antioxidant capacity of 4479 ! µmol TE (ORAC value = Oxygen Radical Absorption Capacity). The body’s defence mechanisms are strengthened by foods rich in antioxidants, and this helps to neutralise excessive production of free radicals. The recommended ORAC daily requirement is between 5000 and 7000 .
Our pomegranate segments are an attractive Purple colour. The seeds are crunchy and edible. The surrounding fruit flesh, including the skin, gives the seeds their aromatic, characteristically fruity taste.
The pomegranate is the subject of legends: Said to have triggered the Trojan War, in Christian culture it symbolises the fertility of Mary, mother of Jesus. It is regarded as a symbol of life – the Ancient Egyptians placed pomegranates in mummies‘tombs. The pomegranate’s reputation as an aphrodisiac has persisted to the present day, and it is an ingredient in many love potions.
Origin and Production:
We source our organic Fairtrade pomegranates exclusively from Uzbekistan, enabling us to guarantee our high quality standards.
Large parts of the region are certified for organic and FAIRTRADE products, and are cultivated by the FAIRTRADE farmers living there. The farmers are part of a large Fairtrade community made up of 3 groups, Dustkul Bogi, Turkiston Gulba and Turob Bobo. 1,000 farmers and their families belong to the community. By working with Fairtrade, the farmers can provide their families with a secure income and offer their children new opportunities.
After harvesting, a special procedure is used to remove the seeds from the hard skin. Then the arils are shock frozen so that their appearance and shape is retained.
