Pomegranate Peel Powder

Pomegranate Peel Powder

Pomegranate is native to a region from modern-day Iran through Afghanistan and Pakistan to northern India. Pomegranates have been cultivated throughout the Middle East, South Asia, and Mediterranean region for several millennia, and also thrive in the drier climates of California and Arizona.

Iran is the second largest producer and largest exporter of pomegranates in the world. The fruit's juice and paste have a role in Iranian cuisine, e.g. chicken, ghormas, and refreshment bars. Pomegranate skins may be used to stain wool and silk in the carpet industry. Whether originally spread along the route of the Silk Road or brought by sea traders

Pomegranates! Everyone knows about them and no one can contest the benefits of this apparently non- descript looking yet amazing gift of nature. It is not for no good reason that the pomegranate has found mention in ancient scriptures of The Book of Exodus, Babylon Texts, Homeric Hymns and The Quran. However, the real shocker here is who knew the humble pomegranate peel had more benefits to yield than the fruit itself.
