What isn’t there to love about grapes?!

Grapes are like a nature’s super food because they have so much going for them!

Grapes have low GI certification from the Glycaemic Index Foundation meaning they’re a great source of long-lasting energy and a perfect pick-me-up when you’re peckish.  The glucose and fructose in grapes are ‘good’ sugars which provide a great natural source of energy.

They are 80% water to keep you hydrated throughout the day, they contain lots of fibre to help cleanse and detoxify the system and are a good source of Vitamin C which helps maintain a strong immune system.

Grapes are also rich in phytonutrients, such as resveratrol, quercetin, anthocyanin and catechin. Evidence indicates that these powerful antioxidants prevent heart disease by inhibiting the build-up of plaque in coronary arteries, as well as inhibiting the growth of some cancers.

They also contain Vitamin B6, vital for a healthy nervous system, while red grapes boast the same beneficial antioxidants as red wine – but without the alcohol.
