The combination of crunchy texture and dry, sweet, tart flavor has made grapes an ever popular between meal, snack, as well as a refreshing addition to both fruit and vegetable salads.

Grapes contain beneficial compounds called flavonoids, which are phytonutrients that give the vibrant purple color to grapes; the stronger the color, the higher the concentration of flavonoids. These flavonoid compounds include quercitin, as well as a second flavonoid-type compound (falling into the chemical category of stilbenes)called resveratrol. Both compounds appear to decrease the risk of heart disease by: Reducing platelet clumping and harmful blood clots and protecting LDL cholesterol from the free radical damage that initiates LDL's artery-damaging actions.

Vitamin C in grapes can be helpful for preventing the development and progression of atherosclerosis and diabetic heart disease.

Grapes are used as an ingredient in salads, as the toppings on cake, ice cream, puddings, and jellies. Or simply cut the grapes into slices, sprinkle sugar and add cream – you will get a heavenly taste!
