Product Description

Pomegranate (Whole Fruit Powder, Certified Organic)

Also Known As – Punica granatum

Origin - Brazil

Overview - The pomegranate is a deciduous shrub that grows about 6 to 15 feet tall. The branches are slightly drooped. When left unpruned, the bush looks like it is weeping. The trumpet–shaped flowers are a deep orange-red with ruffled petals. Technically a large berry, the fruit is approximately 2 to 3 inches in diameter and is red or yellowish-green when mature. The seeds, juice and pulp are eaten, but the inner membrane is not. The fruit is native to Asia, although it is now cultivated in many parts of the world. It can be found in most grocery stores, and the juice is becoming more popular as well.

Our Organic Pomegranate Powder is made with 100% raw pomegranate arils. They are Micro-dried on harvest day to help preserve and lock in nutritional value and flavor. Please note that we do not add Maltodextrin or dyes to our powdered herbs and thus our pomegranate powder is not pink/burgundy as most retailers on the market today. Our pomegranate powder can very from burnt orange to light brown and has no fillers.
