You mean as they eat a pomegranate?
I've never removed seeds from anything. But feeding them pomegranates is pretty rare.
I'd leave them in.
I generally feed any of the many fruits that I can get here locally. Pomegranate is not one of those.

The pomengranate seeds... the arils... you remove them from the fruit by hitting the pomengranate shell with a spoon and they drop out... the seeds/arils... are they OK for a red foot to eat? I can't find any info on that one way or the other... we eat a lot of them in smoothies as they are a total superfood and we buy them in frozen form to keep in the freezer until ready to use

As long as the tortoise's throat is big enough to swallow them without choking, then yes, you can allow them to eat the seeds. RF and YF tortoises eat quite a few seeds in the wild, and if we don't provide seeds for them, they resort to eating pebbles.
