Are pomegranates a good source of iodine?


Q. does pomegranate perils have iodine?


A. The pomegranate perils you are referring to are called arils and are compacted in the white pith of the fruit.  Pomegranates are low in calories, high in fiber, high in vitamins, and high in phytochemicals that may promote heart health and help to prevent cancer. The amount of iodine in fruits and vegetables varies depending on the level of iodine content of the soil and fertilizer use.  They may have trace amounts of iodine.
