Frank, I have been consuming Pomegranate juice for almost 8 years and initially drank 250ml daily of Suncrest Pomegranate juice as this was the most economic unconcentrated product available but for a number of years since Suncrest stopped supplying it in 1lt bottles I've had to rely on the "own brand" concentrated juice drink that comes in 1lt cartons and available in most supermarkets.
I have stuck with Aldi's Rio Doro Pomegranate juice drink for a couple of years now as this one has all the "bits" left in it as opposed to the other supermarket brands which are "clear" and I suspect over processed.
Admittedly, all the carton type pomegranate juice drinks have added sugar and are mixed with various other berry juices to enhance the flavour but most have 30% of concentrated Pomegranate juice as the main ingredient and I have had to settle for this as an alternative to the vastly more expensive unconcentrated variants available i.e POM.
I'm hopeful that I've been doing the right thing these last few years since changing from the pure stuff to the concentrated alternative and believe that the juice I am drinking is still relatively high in the antioxidants/polyphenols. Only time will tell.
I doubt if I shall ever stop drinking Pomegranate juice as it has become an indispensable part of the psychological armoury of diet and lifestyle changes I made 8 years ago and to remove just one weapon from that armoury might just be the undoing of a successful battle plan!
As for the various tablet extract forms of Pomegranate, I've never given them any thought as I can't see how all the processing that goes into converting the Pomegranate fruit into a tablet does the vital ingredients any good.
