Can You Eat Pomegranate SeedsCan you eat pomegranate seeds? The answer is yes! In fact, the seeds are full of fiber and are really good for you.

The Pomegranate Council has this to say about eating pomegranates and their seeds:

“Pomegranates contain glistening red arils that are delicious and heavy with juice. Inside each aril is a tiny edible seed that provides valuable fiber and can be enjoyed along with the aril. The white membrane that surrounds the arils is bitter and not recommended for consumption.”

So go ahead and enjoy your pomegranates, seeds and all!
