POM Wonderful makes a family of products that use a specific type of pomegranate that is actually named Wonderful. They make all natural juices, teas, concentrates, pills and more all of which have the antioxidants that come from Wonderful pomegranates. Their line of juices include 100% Pomegranate, POM Blueberry, POM Cranberry, POM Cherry and POM Mango. They also make a line of Lite POM, which have up to 50% less calories than the regular POM Juices do. Choose from Lite POM Pomegranate, Lite POM Dragonfruit, Lite POM Black Currant, and Lite POM Blackberry. They also make POM tea, which come in three flavors: Blackberry Tea, Lychee Green Tea, or Peach Passion Tea. POMx Pills are a supplement that contains the antioxidant power of an 8 ounce glass of their juice. They also sell fresh pomegranate fruit and Fresh Arils, (which are the fruit of the pomegranate that has already been separated out from it for you). You can purchase POM supplements or POM Concentrate online, but not the rest of their products. This means the price could vary depending on which store you purchased it from. Their website has a natural foods coupon for POM products that you can print out and take with you when you go shopping.
Pomegranate juice contains polyphenol antioxidants. According to the POM website, that helps protect the body against “free radicals”, which are molecules that can cause damage to your body. It also contains Potassium, which helps your body to make strong bones. POM Wonderful products do not include any of the eight major allergens: soy, wheat, eggs, milk, tree nuts, peanuts, fish and crustaceans. No wheat or gluten means that their products are safe for people who have celiac disease or an allergy to or intolerance of gluten to consume. No milk means that their products are lactose free. The Lite POM products are great for people who are interested in losing weight. POM has its headquarters in Los Angeles, California, and their Wonderful pomegranates are grown in California’s San Joaquin Valley.
