First of all, thank you so much to Molly at POM Wonderful for sending me some POM juice to review! Even if you have no interest in nutritionally dense foods, I’m sure you’ve heard that goji berries, acai berries, and pomegranates are superfoods! POM Wonderful’s pomegranate juice is made of 100% pomegranates!
Here are the nutrition facts for one 8oz serving:
It seems to be a little high in sugar for my preference, but I guess there’s not much that can be done about that since pomegranates are naturally very sweet fruit.
Basically, POM Wonderful grows high-quality pomegranates (on their own farms in California,) which are very high in potent antioxidants, which improve your health in numerous ways. Antioxidants are great for cleaning up free radicals in our bodies, which could play a role in the prevention of certain diseases, plus they help us recover from our workouts stronger and faster.
POM Wonderful is also backed by $25 million in medical research, that has concluded that pomegranate and POM juice can:
- Improve blood flow to your heart.
- Decrease arterial plaque in patients with atherosclerosis.
- Contain more, and better quality, polyphenol antioxidants than red wine.
Now for the important part…the taste! 🙂 I first started sipping on this very slowly in order to get a perfect description of the taste for my review. It was very smooth and sweet. It tasted just like pomegranate but without the crunch of the seeds, go figure!! I love the taste of pomegranate fruit, but it’s kind of a pain to cut it open, clean out and rinse all of the seeds, and throw them together before you can enjoy them. With the juice, it’s as simple as the twist of the cap! How convenient 🙂
Up next on the “to-try” list is going to be the POM iced coffee! Stay tuned for reviews if I get a chance to pick some up at the grocery store!
Again, thanks so much, Molly! You’re POMWonderful 🙂
