The pomegranate has a long history in the mythology of many cultures and its healthy qualities are renowned.
The fruit is rich in vitamins (E, C, A) and folic acid while recent research work indicates that the pomegranate is a potential asset in preventing heart attacks and cancer.
Pomegranate juice contains an anti-oxidant that is particularly strong and is more effective in preventing heart attacks than red wine, green tea or tomatoes.
Currently, two research groups are working in Israel on the development of health treatments and products based on pomegranates.
Apart from simply eating the fresh pomegranates this pleasant and tasty fruit has many other uses, culinary and aesthetic (as an addition to salads, in cooking, as juice, for decorations, in health products, as raw material for industrial products such as cosmetics and dyes).
The fruit can be well preserved.
