Pomegranate Essence by Secret Gardens, a pure pomegranate dressing and marinade, has hit the shelves in Whole Foods UK supermarkets around the country.
Originating in Turkey, the fruity dressing is reported to be packed with the flavours of sun kissed pomegranates, handpicked from the Antakya region. Perfect for salads, marinades, sauces and even as a health supplement, the 100% pure pomegranate recipe is rapidly growing in popularity as more stores snap up its tangy health benefits.
Stocked by Ocado since its launch last summer, Pomegranate Essence now lines the shelves at a number of retailers. Born in the USA, Whole Foods is distinct for its commitment to natural and organic foods and has more than 360 stores in North America and the United Kingdom. It only stock foods that are free of artificial preservatives, colours, flavours, sweeteners and hydrogenated fats.
Pomegranate Essence’s joint founding director, Taner Ozsumer, said: “We love Whole Foods UK and their commitment to organic produce. We’re thrilled to see Pomegranate Essence in Whole Foods UK stores as its ethos is very close to our own hearts. Interest is at an all time high and we anticipate confirming a number of other new stockists shortly.”
Using a traditional Turkish recipe known as ‘Nar Eksisi’, the pomegranates are gently squeezed and simmered in order to bring out their rich natural flavours and nutrients. The result of this method is a pure natural pomegranate extract that is tangy, sweet and sour. Each bottle contains approximately six whole pomegranates, nothing added and nothing taken away, to ensure the purity of flavour and nutritional content are preserved.
Pomegranates are well known for its high levels of flavonoids and polyphenols, potent antioxidants invaluable for health. Pomegranate Essence harnesses the nutritional wonders of the miracle fruit in one delicious dressing. Eaten regularly, pomegranate helps to regulate the digestive system, lower cholesterol, control weight, combat cell damage, decrease the risk of heart disease and even lower the risk of cancer. Free from gluten, wheat, artificial colours, artificial flavours and GM, Pomegranate Essence is also suitable for those with special diets and health conditions.
Pomegranate Essence is available from Ocado, Whole Foods UK and other select retailers.
