The pomegranate is native from Iran to the Himalayas in northern India and was cultivated and naturalized over the whole Mediterranean region since ancient times. The pomegranate was introduced into California by Spanish settlers in 1769. In this country it is grown for its fruits mainly in the drier parts of California and Arizona.
Pomegranate juice is a juice made from the pomegranate fruit – an unusual seedy fruit with a tart, yet sweet taste. While the flavor of pomegranate juice is really delicious, the health benefits of the juice are extraordinary. By packing quite a punch of vitamins, antioxidants and folic acid, a single pomegranate can provide an adult with 40 percent of their daily vitamin C requirements. Pomegranate juice is full of powerful antioxidants. In fact, a glass of pomegranate juice can provide you with more antioxidants than any other juice and even contains more antioxidants than antioxidant-rich red wine.
The fruits and the drinking of pomegranate juice in the US have been popularized over the past several years. You can buy the juice, most of it processed and rehydrated from concentrate.
