The pomegranate is that delicious fruit that takes on special prominence in autumn, when it is in season.

In Spain, the largest volume of pomegranate crops, the pomegranate tree, is in the Valencian Community, mainly in the province of Alicante, as its dry and hot climate is perfect for it. Our pomegranates of national origin come from Alicante, Castellón and Valencia. After being harvested, we transfer them to our plant in Albuixech
where they are shelled with great care to sell them in our pre-prepared convenience food tubs (pre-prepared convenience food).

Pomegranate is a fruit that in Peris we work all year round and that is increasingly demanded by the consumer. The growth is associated with the fact that the uses are expanding and consumers now have access to a more convenient format for this fruit, such as the one offered by our tubs, ready to open and enjoy.

If before pomegranate consumption was mostly as a dessert, the truth is that it is increasingly incorporated into more recipes like the one we are going to give you at the end of this article.


How to peel a pomegranate

The consumption of any fruit is usually associated with several factors. That we like its flavor, the benefits it brings us and also the convenience of its consumption, among others.

And the truth is that pomegranate is not the most convenient fruit to consume. Its interior is full of small grains (the technical word is arils) and requires skill in the technique of shelling the pomegranate and patience.

At Peris we do this task ourselves, shelling it and packaging it in 70% recycled and 100% recyclable tubs under the Peris and Frutifresh brands.
. This convenient pomegranate format can be found in supermarkets such as El Corte Inglés, Alcampo and Mi Alcampo, among others.


The work of shelling the pomegranate is carried out in our clean room. A hygienic and certified space where the temperature is kept below 8ºC and the air is renewed about 200 times a day.

In this way, the fruit does not oxidize and remains fresh until its optimal consumption date, and food safety is not compromised.

In the clean room we have numerous technologies for peeling and chopping fruits and vegetables. However, there are processes that are very artisanal, because for some tasks, manual processing offers more quality and control of the final result. And pomegranate peeling is one of them.

How to peel a pomegranate the easy way, step by step

  1. To peel the pomegranate the first thing we do is cut the base of the fruit, the part that has like a crown and remove it.
  2. Then cut the skin of the pomegranate from the base to the other end, but without reaching the end just where the webs that divide the pomegranate inside are born. The objective is to generate several cuts, to cause the pomegranate to open in a kind of segments.
  3. Open a little the pieces generated with the cuts and begin to hit the pomegranate with a spoon so that the grains are detached. Here you simply have to be patient, because it takes a little while to extract all the grains.

In case you have any doubts, here we share a video of how we peel the pomegranate in our clean room.

Health benefits of pomegranate

Pomegranate is a source of vitamin K and vitamin C.

Vitamin K contributes to normal blood clotting and to the maintenance of normal bones.

Vitamin C has multiple benefits, including contributing to the normal formation of collagen, which is essential for the normal functioning of blood vessels, bones, skin and gums.

Vitamin C, which is a source of pomegranate, also contributes to the normal functioning of the nervous system, the immune system and the protection of cells against oxidative damage.

If you are looking to reduce tiredness through food or improve iron absorption, pomegranate will also contribute, precisely because it is a source of vitamin C.

Pomegranate recipe, easy and different

When we incorporate pomegranate in a recipe it is usually a salad. And no wonder, because pomegranate brings a fresh touch, between sweet and sour, which combines great with leaves, fresh cheese, nuts, cucumber or creamier ingredients such as avocado.

We propose a different pomegranate recipe: a warm salad with quinoa, vegetables and pomegranate.

[h3] Warm quinoa salad with braised vegetables and pomegranate (2 servings)



  • 150 grams of quinoa.
  • 2 carrots.
  • 1 tablespoon of Tamari (or soy sauce).
  • 1 tablespoon of water.
  • Pepper.
  • 1 garlic.
  • ½ tub of Frutifresh pomegranate.
  • ½ Purple onion.
  • Baby spinach for salad.


  1. Soak the quinoa for 8 hours and cook according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
  2. Sauté the vegetables. Onion cut into half moons, chopped garlic and carrots cut into slices. When they get a little color, add the tamari, water and pepper. Let the liquid evaporate and while the vegetables are still al dente, add the quinoa to the pan and stir a few times to integrate the flavors.
  3. Put the quinoa with the vegetables in a bowl, add the spinach and, as a topping, the pomegranate.
  4. Dress to your liking. If you have aromatic herbs (basil, oregano, dill…) incorporate them, because they combine great with the pomegranate and with the rest of the ingredients of this recipe.
