Hey all , I have been apart of 30 bad for over 3 years now and this is my first post :)
I am wondering about the fat / protein content of the fibrous white part of pomegranate seeds ?
I have researched this question before and was unable to find the answer i am looking for pertaining to this lifestyle .
What are some of your experiences with pomegranate seeds ? do you guys just drink the juice or do you eat the whole seed ?
Thanks for any responses
I eat the pulp around the seeds and then spit the seeds out, although I know some who just swallow the seeds after. As far as I know there's no inherent risk in eating them, they just pass through.
Now when you say "fibrous white part" -- are you referring to the pulp around the seed, or the white membrane enveloping the seeds?
The nutritional data for the edible portion is here.
Sorry, I didn't read closely -- you were wondering about the fat/protein of the actual seed. Disregard my unhelpful response. :)
I eat the whole thing. I just chew seed up well. I think the seeds have a minimal fat content but def healthy for you! I am eating 2 pomegranates a day with my salad for dinner since my Dad has a tree that I raided! :)
I am lazy and greedy with them i juice em with tangerines they have beautiful lately
I eat the whole thing as well!
thanks for your replies .
