The alternatives "Pomwonderful" and some brands stocked on the health food/organic section and at my local alternative market/health food/organic food store are rather more expensive. I read the label on the bottle of pomegranate molasses I found at an Indian import store and it appeared to be just concentrated pomegranate juice. I figured I would cut it with water. Thus my question.
I guess the thing to do would be to see how well it seems to address your medical condition. Pomegranate molasses seems to be rather heavily oxidized, either through heating to reduce or exposure to air in evaporation. The important question for you would presumably have to be, is anything I need altered or absent from this juice in this form?
Akin to noting that there's a chemical found in fresh plums that we need, and wondering if maybe prune juice would a viable alternative. It's a fairly large maybe.
