Calories In Pomegranate


Calories in pomegranate

Pomegranates have 100 calories in a medium fruit weighing 154 gms according to the US Center for Disease Control.

They are high in carbohydrates with 26 grams, all sugars.

They have small amounts of Vitamin C and 1 gram each of protein and fiber in that serving size.

How do you eat pomegranates?

It's easy.

First, choose a fruit that is heavy, bright red, and without blemishes.

For fresh eating, you can cut off the crown, then slice into the outside skin to open the fruit.

Then break it into pieces, remove the white membranes, and eat the red seeds.

If you want to use the seeds in recipes for fruit salads or as a garnish, here's how to collect the seeds more quickly.

Again, cut off the crown and slice into the outside skin.

Then soak the whole fruit in a bowl of water for several minutes.

Break it apart under water so that the seeds sink and the white membrane floats.

Discard the membrane and lightly colored seeds. Drain and pat the remaining bright red seeds dry.

The seeds are an attractive topping for fruit salads, desserts, ice cream, and custards. Ethnic dishes use them in sauces, chutneys, curry, and soups.

The juice can be made into syrups, liquors, and tart jelly.
