ArilSystemTM - Industrial Pomegranates Seed Extraction

Our story begins with the POMEGRANATE

A gift of nature, the pomegranate is unique. With its natural crown and ruby red seeds, or arils, it has featured throughout history not only as a revered delicacy, but also as a decorative element, adding beauty to tables, as well as appearing in ancient mosaics and manuscript illustrations.

Among the fruits mentioned in the Bible, the pomegranate has more recently been described as one of the latest “super foods” – that is, a food that is amazingly rich in concentrated vitamins and anti-oxidants. With today’s trend toward health awareness and the growing consumption of super foods in both their natural and processed forms, the pomegranate has become an attractive investment, promising high returns.

Vast and growing market opportunities…

Fresh-Cut

Attractively packaged and offering a long shelf-life, pomegranate arils are rapidly growing in popularity in the fresh-cut market as a health food, a gourmet ingredient and a beautiful garnish.

Frozen Arils

Global production of frozen fruit and vegetables currently reaches 15 million tons, and is growing at a rate of over 3% annually. In the wake of strong public demand for healthy foods, frozen pomegranate arils are an increasingly popular trend in the food industry.

Juice

Fruit juice manufacturers who use arils produced by ArilSystemTM produce a higher quality, better tasting product.

Wine

A new line of wines using ArilSystemTM pomegranate arils has entered the market with remarkable flavor and added health benefits.

Medical

Among the health benefits of pomegranates is its ability to help reduce arterial plaque and help prevent its future build-up; it reduces hypertension; and it has been shown to possess anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties.

Pharmaceutical

The seeds, a by-product of pomegranate juice, are a rich source of oil which is a valuable ingredient for anti-aging creams and other cosmetic and pharmaceutic products.

Automation – The key to unlocking a huge market

In the past, despite its remarkable health benefits and attractive appearance, the pomegranate did not enjoyed popular use due to the time, effort, and mess involved in accessing its juicy seeds, or arils. In today’s modern hurry-up world, with its emphasis on convenience and its growing awareness for personal health, the fresh-cut market is gaining ground.

ArilSystemTM accesses industrial quantity pomegranate seeds quickly and easily, making them an ideal feature in the fresh cut market.

ArilSystemTM now makes it easy… You’re welcome!
