Pomegranate Juice - Whats the story?
You might have noticed that everyone is talking about Pomegranate Juice.... and you might be wondering what all the fuss is about.
One reason that Pomegranate Juice has hit the headlines lately, is that a new Australian company, named Found Organics, has just burst on to the scene, and their beautiful, pure organic juice has made quite an impact. Their 100% Organic juice is not made from concentrate, and is not reconstituted. There is no added sugar, No additives and No Preservatives. The Juice is delicious and refreshing, with a tart, slightly astringent flavour, similar to Cranberry juice. As it is quite a strong taste, the juice may be diluted to taste, or blended with other flavours, such as lime, or lemon or apple or watermelon.
Another reason that Pomegranate Juice has been in the news lately, is that recent medical research has shown that it may help to prevent or slow the development of several types of cancer, especially Prostate cancer. Pomegranates and their juice have also been shown to be beneficial for your heart and blood vessels, and they have a very impressive antioxidant rating, higher that the well known levels in red wine, green tea, blueberries and cranberries. Pomegranate juice also offers the immune system a boost, and is seen by some as a great tasting general health tonic.
There are of course, many types of antioxidants, each of particular benefit to different parts of the body. The best way to get all the nutrients you need is to eat a broad range of fresh fruits and vegetables, with a broad range of colours.
Found Organic Pomegranate Juice is available in 1 litre and a handy 250ml size, which you'll find in the fridge. Pomegranates have held special significance in art and culture throughout history, some people even claim that the apple in the garden of eden was more likely to have been a pomegranate. The mythology and historical significance of these luscious fruits is celebrated in the stylish found organic website, which you can visit by clicking here.
