Pomegranate seeds are said to have a positive influence on a wide variety of diseases, such as cancer and cardiovascular diseases. Furthermore, it was found that the pomegranate is rich in phytoestrogens, especially estrone. Estrone is a mildly effective estrogen that resembles the female sex hormones. The pomegranate also contains a lot of vitamins A, C, potassium and antioxidants. The pomegranate contains large amounts of secondary plant substances such as polyphenols (flavonoids, tannins). Pomegranates can have a stimulating effect, which has a particularly positive effect on chronic fatigue, listlessness, infections and inflammation. [1 to 4].
Our organic pomegranates come from smallholder groups in the picturesque surroundings of Samarkand, Uzbekistan. The pomegranates are harvested by hand, piece by piece, when fully ripe and peeled by hand and gently dried on the same day by our processing company Silk Road Organic Foods. For the production of 100 g of organic pomegranates you need around 1 kg of fresh organic fruit, i.e. a ratio of 1:10! The pomegranate has been cultivated for over 5000 years and is therefore one of the oldest plants known to man. The name pomegranate goes back to the Romans (lat. granae = seeds, grains; lat. granatus = granular, rich in seeds).
The pomegranate has a legendary history: Among other things, Eve was able to seduce Adam with his help and Paris triggered the Trojan War by giving Aphrodite a pomegranate. The pomegranate has always been a symbol of life and fertility. Our dried pomegranates are made from carefully selected fresh fruits that are peeled by hand and then gently dried. Refine your breakfast, your salads or use the pomegranates for baking and surprise your guests with this exquisite delicacy of the Silk Road.
