Pomegranate Arils

Pomegranate arils are the seeds of the fruit, dried with the surrounding pulp intact. Like fresh pomegranates, our wholesale dried arils are naturally sweet and tart. The fresh fruit is delicious, but not always easy to find or easy to eat. Keeping dried arils in the pantry allows you to enjoy this nutritious ingredient all year long. Mount Hope’s wholesale prices make that convenient to do.

Our pomegranate arils are a tasty and healthy snack, especially when added to one of our nutritious nut mixes, but they are more versatile in cooked dishes than many people realize. Several Mediterranean cuisines rely on dried pomegranate seeds to add texture, richness, brightness, sweetness or tartness to traditional dishes. Yes, that’s how versatile arils are! When used as a finishing spice, arils provide a tart bite of fresh flavor and crunch. However, when used in a slow-cooked sauce or braising liquid they can impart a rich, almost molasses-like background flavor that compliments meat and poultry. Try tossing some into your next pot of stew or add them to pan drippings for a more flavorful gravy. Used frequently in Persian cooking where they are called anardana, pomegranate arils are often ground and used in chutneys and spice rubs or to season vegetables.

Pomegranates are packed with nutrition and are a great source of vitamin K, vitamin C and dietary fiber. Studies have shown pomegranate seed extract to be an effective anti-inflammatory, helping to ease the pain of arthritis, and they’re being studied as a cancer-fighting food. The punicic acid in pomegranate has been shown to inhibit the growth of breast cancer. Eating our bulk pomegranate arils may also help lower blood pressure, fight infection and improve heart health. One thing we know for certain is that Mount Hope bulk pomegranate arils are delicious!
