Biotta Pomegranate

HK$68 for 500ml, ThreeSixty

Unlike the other two products, this isn't pure pomegranate juice; this 100 per cent organic Swiss product is a combination of white tea, agave concentrate, pear puree and aronia (a type of berry) juice. The packaging advises to enjoy a glass of this before each meal to 'enrich your diet'.

Verdict: the added ingredients balance out the tartness of the pomegranate and make this a more palatable drink.

Nature's Sensation Organic Pomegranate

HK$23.50 for 250ml, ThreeSixty

This 100 per cent fresh-pressed fruit juice is not from concentrate and has no added sugar or additives. In other words, this is as pure as bottled pomegranate juice gets. A product of Turkey.

Verdict: the most tart of the three, but not too dry, so it goes down pretty easily. Best served ice cold.

Pom Wonderful

HK$29 for 236ml, ThreeSixty

This 100 per cent pomegranate juice from concentrate is said to be packed with powerful antioxidants that help neutralise free radicals. The Californian manufacturer claims the benefits are backed by 47 published medical studies.

Verdict: tart, bitter and very dry; so much so that it lingers and irritates the back of the throat. Not one for quenching a thirst.
