Reply:No. My mother and I eat them all the time and in fact they%26#039;re really good for you. They%26#039;re rich in antioxidants...and they taste good! Eat and enjoy, don%26#039;t worry about it!

Reply:No, or I would have suffered serious consequences.
Reply:No. Most people just don%26#039;t like the crunch of them. I%26#039;ve eaten tons of pomegranate seeds and never got sick.
Reply:Don%26#039;t believe so. I have heard that apple seeds are, though.

Here%26#039;s what the experts say:

If you have no patience for seeds, then this is not the fruit for you. Every pomegranate is composed of exactly 840 seeds, each surrounded by a sac of sweet-tart juice contained by a thin skin. The seeds are compacted around the core in a layer resembling honeycomb. The layers of seeds are separated by paper-thin white membranes which are bitter to the tongue. The inner membranes and rind are not generally eaten due to high tannic acid content, but they are useful as a skin wash.

Many people eat the fresh fruit by chewing on the seeds to release the juice from the sacs and then swallow seeds and all. The seeds are considered good roughage to help cleanse the body. In India, the seeds are dried and ground into a powder to be used in meat dishes.

Others will chew the juice from the seeds and then spit out the seeds. One method to get just the juice is to vigorously roll the fruit on a hard surface to break the juice sacs. When the fruit is soft, puncture the end, insert a straw, and suck out the juice, squeezing as you go. Obviously, there is a fair amount of waste in this process.

The option to eat or discard the seeds is yours.
