difference of pomegranate juice and concentrate

    Pomegranates are among nature’s best functional foods due to their potential health benefits beyond basic nutrition. They are a great source of antioxidants, which may help protect against chronic diseases such as heart disease, cancer, and Alzheimer’s disease. Pomegranates also contain polyphenols, which have been shown to have anti-inflammatory effects, and may also help lower blood pressure and improve cholesterol levels. In addition, pomegranates are a good source of fiber and vitamin C, which are important for overall health. Let’s explore together below the main difference of a pomegranate juice and the corresponding concentrate, as well as a pomegranate fruit.

    Not every pomegranate fruit is created equal

    Pomegranates contain compounds that have been shown to possess extremely healthy properties. However, as is the case with everything in life, not every pomegranate is created equal, and this is related to the DNA of the tree, as well as other environmental and cultivation factors. In simple words, not everyone starts from the same base, and it is that base that determines the final medicinal level and whether it can be reached.

    All pomegranate juices are not the same

    Similarly, not every pomegranate juice is the same. The anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory and health associated properties are all determined by the juice extraction technology and the preservation of those vital components during processing. This may result in final products with completely different concentration levels on certain vital nutrients and compounds. At MILESTONE, we use proprietary technology, so rest assured that we already serve you the best that Nature has to give.

    Pomegranate Concentrate - A Food with a Function

    The main difference between pomegranate juice and a concentrate is that a concentrated form aims to deliver the maximum level of nutrients and compounds at a dosage that can be consumed by humans on a regular basis. This is the key concept of all medical-grade concentrated forms of functional foods and supplements. The key however, in comparison to supplements, is that we have to retain the full complex food matrix as intact as possible during the transformation process that begins from the land, goes on to harvesting, continues with the extraction of the juice and finishes with the evaporation of water. All this needs to be treated with extreme caution and control in order to transform a common food to a functional food with specific health uses.
