The Nutritional Value of Grapes

There is no denying that grapes are one of the world’s most popular fruits. 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 fiber. Fiber adds bulk to your diet and can help keep you feeling satisfied throughout the day. Moreover, fiber-rich foods such as fruits help provide a feeling of fullness with fewer calories.

Research has also shown that grapes of all colors – red, green and black – are a natural source of beneficial components called polyphenols, which are also antioxidants. Grape polyphenols may contribute to a healthy heart, and may help defend against a variety of age-related and other illnesses.
