A friend recently told me to use pom. seeds in my salads to give a great crunchy, sweet taste. I find only pomegranate juice when I do a search. Help?

I was a kid when I first had pomegranate and I thought the seeds were the prettiest red, ruby like jewel things I had ever seen in my life. What a treat it was!

How do the seeds affect your blood sugars? I understand from others that 1/2 cup of the seeds is about 15 grams of carbs.

The 1/2 a cup is one serving of fruit. How it affects blood sugar will probably be an individual thing as each of us reacts differently to different foods.

Does this fruit effect your glucose readings?

Yes it is a fruit and has fructose which breaks down into glucose in the body. How it will affect YOUR blood sugar, is something you may have to find out on your own.

Everything with carbohydrate (foods that comes from plants) affect the blood glucose levels, some more than others.

Did you know that each pomegranate has exactly 840 seeds?? I didn't either, just google "pomegranate seeds" and there is a bunch of info.What I skimmed over was for the do it yourselfers. Didn't see or look for already processed ones. Hope this helped.

We eat a lot of pomegranate in out house. We always buy from the the supermarket when we see them.

You'll find them - when they're in season - in the produce section of your grocery store. They're wonderful! As you described: sweet and crunchy.
