    Grapes health benefits and nutritional values

    On average, Americans eat eight pounds of grapes a year! Grapes’ nutritional value and health benefits are also undeniable. Not only are grapes delicious as a snack or in a meal, they also contain fibre. Fibre adds bulk to your diet and can help keep you feeling satisfied throughout the day. Moreover, fibre-rich foods such as fruits help provide a feeling of fullness with fewer calories.


    The ways to consume grapes are endless- from red, green and purple grapes to seedless grapes, grape jelly, grape jam and grape juice. And don't forget wine and raisins! This popular fruit's history goes back as far as 8,000 years, when grape vines were first cultivated in what is now the Middle East.

    It may surprise you to hear that the humble grape is actually considered to be a berry. Seventy-two million tons of these berries are grown each year worldwide, with most of them being used to produce wine - 7.2 trillion gallons of wine per year, to be exact.The portability, texture, flavour and variety of grapes have made them a popular finger food in countries all over the world. The potential health benefits of consuming grapes are numerous, with past studies associating them with prevention of cancer, heart disease, and constipation, and hiogh blood pressure.

    A grape is a fruit, botanically a berrry, of the deciduous woody vines of the flowering plant genus.

    Grapes can be eaten fresh as table grapes or they can be used for making wine, jam, juice, jelly, grape seed extract,raisins, vinegar, and grape seed oil. Grapes are a non-climacteric type of fruit, generally occurring in clusters.

    According to the Food and Agriculture Organization, 75,866 square kilometres of the world are dedicated to grapes. Approximately 71% of world grape production is used for wine, 27% as fresh fruit, and 2% as dried fruit. A portion of grape production goes to producing grape juice to be reconstituted for fruits canned "with no added sugar" and "100% natural". The area dedicated to vineyards is increasing by about 2% per year.


    A raisin is a dried grape. Raisins are produced in many regions of the world and may be eaten raw or used in cooking, baking, and brewing. In the United Kingdom, Ireland, New Zealand, and Australia, the word "raisin" is reserved for the dark-coloured dried large grapes with "sultana" being a golden-coloured dried grape, and "currant" being a dried small Black Corinth seedless grape.

    Raisins can contain up to 72% sugars by weight, most of which is fructose and glucose. They also contain about 3% protein and 3.7%–6.8% dietary fibre. Raisins, like prunes and apricots, are also high in certain antioxidants, but have lower vitamin C content than fresh grapes. Raisins are low in sodium and contain no cholesterol.

    Data presented at the American College of Cardiology's 61st Annual Scientific Session in 2012 suggest that, among individuals with mild increases in blood pressure, the routine consumption of raisins (three times a day) may significantly lower blood pressure, especially when compared to eating other common snacks
