A. According to the Pomegranate Council, when eating a pomegranate, you should 'roll out the arils (juice sacs)', discard everything else, and then 'eat the arils whole, seeds and all.'
They go on to say that it is a 'personal choice' as to whether or not you eat the seeds. However, keep in mind that 'most of the fiber that you get from eating pomegranates comes from that little seed.'
In addition to having some fiber, pomegranates are a good source of Vitamin C and potassium. Keep in mind that most of the calories, about 105 calories for a medium pomegranate, come from sugar.
