One half cup of Pomegranate seeds contains 80 calories, 0 g fat, 18 g carbohydrates, 5 g fiber, 12 g sugar and 1 g protein.

Pomegranates are high in Vitamins C, B and K and are high in anti-oxidants. Although some suggest that the high levels of anti-oxidants found in Pomegranates will lower LDL or bad cholesterol, the evidence is unclear.

They have a refreshing and unique flavor and are grown here in the US primarily in California and Arizona. Pomegranates are native to Iran, Iraq and Pakistan but now, in addition to the US, Pomegranates are grown in Northern Africa, India and Latin America.
