What is Winecrush® Powder
Winecrush® is a concentrated source of grape skin and grape seed polyphenols. The deep purple Winecrush® powder starts with organic pomace, or mushy pulp left over after the red wine grapes from the Okanagan valley have been crushed for wine making (and normally thrown out). We transform it into a phytochemical-rich food supplement that can be infused in to any daily meal.
Bioflavonoids and their Antioxidant Effect
The red colouration of Winecrush® that gives rise to the deep red colour of the fermented powder is due to the pigment anthocyanin. Anthocyanin is a bioflavonoid that is highly anti-oxidised, and is the main contributing factor to the remarkably high ORAC value in the powder. At a level of over 8000 ORAC units in a 15g serve of powder, this provides the daily antioxidant requirements necessary for maintaining a healthy diet.
