Vinifera Grape Powders are helping to shed new light on the power of the grape...
A byproduct of Ontario's wine industry, these grape powders contain high levels of fibre and polyphenols such as antioxidants and resveratrol, which are said to help the body fight against illnesses such as cancer.
Offered in several varietals, Vinifera Grape Powders can be used in low concentrations as an added ingredient in any application where flour is normally used including breads, pastas and much more.
Vinifera Powders are now Kosher Certified by COR
Certification opens the door to potential industrial and retail bakers, pasta makers and chefs who insist on Kosher Certification for all their ingredients...
Vinifera For Life has received Kosher certification from the COR -Kashruth Council of Canada. The certification applies to all Vinifera powders produced according to the procedures set out by the Kashruth Council, and will now display the COR symbol on all their products.
“This tells consumers that the Vinifera powders are prepared to rabbinic quality standards. It also opens the door industrial and retail establishments which insist on Kosher certification as one of the criteria for ingredients,” said Vinifera For Life Presdient Mark Walpole.
Rabbi Sholom Adler, Kashrus Administrator of the Kashruth Council of Canada, said, “We were pleased to work with Mark on his new food ingredient made from dried and milled grape skins. Mark was eager to understand the necessary steps and to adjust the process to conform to the kosher laws.
A Healthy Choice
Numerous health benefits attached to using Vinifera products...
A key component of the grape skin is Resveratrol, a rich, natural anti-oxidant recognized for its significant health benefits, particularly in relation to heart diseases and cancer.
Research conducted by the University of Waterloo's Innovation Centre with support from Industry Canada's IRAP (Industrial Research Assistance Program) Program, as well as studies by the Guelph Food Technology Centre, have confirmed the formidable health benefits of the pomace of grape skins after they have been dried and ground.
To mention a few, this product contains Omega-6, Omega-3, Vitamin A, Potassium, Iron, Fibre, ORAC (short for Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity which is a test tube analysis that measures the total anti-oxidant power of foods and other chemical substances) and Phenolics (natural anti-oxidants).
