Gourmet taste buds are set to tingle this month as the exotic tastes of the Mediterranean hits Planet Organic in the form of the deliciously tasty Organic Pomegranate Essence by Secret Gardens. Originating in Turkey, the fruity dressing has summer bottled and offers British palettes the chance to enjoy the delectable flavours of sun kissed organic pomegranates, handpicked from the Antakya region. Perfect for marinades, salads, sauces, dipping and even as a health supplement!
Renowned for its rich soil and warm Mediterranean climate, the Antakya region cultivates distinctively delicious pomegranates that are bursting with a wonderfully sweet taste and delightfully fragrant aroma. Using a traditional Turkish recipe known as ‘Nar Eksisi,’ the fruits used in Pomegranate Essence are gently squeezed and simmered for hours on end to bring out their rich natural flavours. The reduced result is pure organic pomegranate extract that is tangy, sweet and sour.
As well as packing a punch poured over salads, the pomegranate is well known for its high levels of flavonoids and polyphenols, potent antioxidants invaluable for health. Packed full of these phytochemical compounds the Pomegranate has more antioxidants than red wine, green tea and blueberries. A compound found only in Pomegranates called Punicalagin is the major component responsible for Pomegranate’s amazing health benefits.
Organic Pomegranate Essence harnesses the nutritional wonders of the miracle fruit in one delicious dressing. Free from gluten, wheat, artificial colours, artificial flavours and GM, Organic Pomegranate Essence is also suitable for those with special diets and health conditions.
Taner Ozsumer & Tuncay Yildiztas – Joint Founding Directors says “Organic Pomegranate Essence tastes astonishing. The fruit is a staple in Mediterranean diets and now UK connoisseurs can experience the delightful taste and health benefits for themselves. Whether you drizzle it on a salad, use it as a marinade or whip up a show stopping dessert, its multi-purpose nature makes it a savvy kitchen purchase for amateur cooks and gourmet chefs alike.”
As well as its uniquely lip-smacking taste, Organic Pomegranate Essence also comes in environmentally friendly glass bottle. This ensures that the Organic Pomegranate Essence stays fresh, flavoursome and healthy throughout its shelf life.
