LITE POM: Enjoy Pomegranate Flavor with No Added Sugar

Updated on August 21, 2011

Are you a fan of pomegranate juice? Are you looking for ways to reduce your sugar consumption without giving up flavor or adding chemical sweeteners to your diet? If so, you’re sure to be happy to discover LITE POM, a refreshing no-sugar added juice option from POM Wonderful.


LITE POM is not your typical “diet” beverage. While LITE POM is lower in calories than the original POM Wonderful pomegranate juice, it doesn’t contain anything artificial or unhealthy. Instead, this 100 percent all-natural beverage it starts with the same pure pomegranate juice used in the original version of the product.

However, rather than being 100 percent pomegranate juice, POM LITE is tempered with water, infused with tea and sweetened with pure fruit juice. That’s how this beverage can provide the rich, refreshing flavor of pomegranate with fewer calories than 100 percent juice and without unhealthy ingredients like high fructose corn syrup or chemical sweeteners or added sugar.

While it’s not calorie free, it does contain significantly fewer calories than original POM Wonderful, making it a good option for dieters and those who are seeking to reduce their calorie and/or sugar consumption. An eight ounce serving of LITE POM contains between 75 and 80 calories. POM LITE is a terrific beverage choice to enjoy on its own or as an accompaniment to meals.

POM LITE Flavor Options

The folks at POM Wonderful sent me a few bottles of POM LITE to try for myself, so I can say firsthand that it is a delicious beverage that you can feel good about drinking. It comes in four delicious flavor varieties.

  • Flavor choices include:
  • Pomegranate
  • Pomegranate Black Currant
  • Pomegranate Blackberry
  • Pomegranate Dragonfruit

My favorite out of the four flavors is Pomegranate Blackberry, but they all taste great.

POM LITE & Antioxidants

If you’re seeking pomegranate juice to enjoy the benefits of the antioxidant properties of this superfruit, you should be ware that an eight ounce serving of LITE POM has half of a full-daily serving of polyphenol antioxidants, which is 650 milligrams. So, while you’d only need to drink one eight ounce serving of POM Wonderful to get a full daily serving of this powerful antioxidant boost, you’ll need to consume 16 ounces of POM LITE to get the same amount.

Where to Find POM LITE

Look for 16 ounce bottles of POM LITE in the produce section of your favorite supermarket, placed beside original POM Wonderful Pomegranate Juice and POMx Tea. The suggested retail price is $2.49 per bottle. Visit if you need help locating a local retailer that carries the product.
