I haven’t done a Things I Love Thursday post in a while, so I figured now is a great time to participate! The great people from POM Wonderful Pomegranate Juice contacted me and sent me a case of their wonderful pomegranate juice and I have been using it regularly over the past couple of weeks. I have always loved adding Pom juice to my water, but with the juice they also sent me many great facts about Pom juice. I also searched through their website and found many other great ways to use the wonderful and healthy juice. So I thought I’d share with you some things I learned.
I did know about this brand of Pom juice, and I have used it in the past. The Captain and I like to add a bunch to our water to add flavor, and a bit of health benefits. I never truly knew ALL the benefits until I got the information from POM Wonderful. As it turns out POM Wonderful has provided $32 million to fund world class scientific research on pomegranates resulting in over 45 published studies…that’s a lot of words to say that they have facts to back up their claims.
Pomegranate Juice Health Benefits
Research has shown the drinking 8 oz of Pom juice daily can benefit you cardiovascularly, help your prostate and with erectile function (dudes you should get on this). And the one that I already knew about is the antioxidant potency. It says it has more antioxidants than red wine…so maybe I just have to double up on my red wine intake to balance it out???
Another thing I just learned is that you can use the juice in a lot of recipes! I had no idea! So I decided to give it a try. My contact at Pom Wonderful recommended that I try the POM velvet cupcakes, and I should’ve taken her suggestion. I decided instead to try to make a chicken recipe. But I failed…I was so bummed! I can’t put my finger on what I did wrong but I definitely burned the pan sauce. So next time I will stick with baking. The recipesand the pictures on the website look too irresistable not to try! They have a recipe for Pom Tiramisu that I have my eye on.
I was happy to learn that there is more to the POM juice than meets the eye. It has a lot of health benefits, but it’s also very yummy…and as it turns out works great for cooking!
