Benefits of WineCrush Powder

Studies have shown that grape seeds and skins in our WineCrush powder have many health benefits. The nutrients can aid in preventing major illnesses like cancer or Alzheimer’s disease. They can help lower blood pressure, reduce inflammation, and aid in weight loss.

The polyphenol antioxidants in the powder help protect the cells in the body, controlling the rate of aging and preventing tissue degradation associated with heart disease and cancer.

Other nutrients found in our WineCrush Powder that have positive health benefits are Vitamin E, linoleic acid, gallic acid, flavonoids, phenolic acids, proanthocyanidins, anthrocyanins, and last but not least – resveratrol.

Resveratrol has been getting a lot of attention in recent years due to its high concentrations of cancer fighting antioxidants. Studies have shown resveratrol positively impacts cardiac function, reduces inflammation, lowers LDL (bad cholesterol), and prevents damaged eyesight due to age. Grape skins are packed with this compound. 

Our WineCrush Powder is made using the finest grape wine grapes from wineries in the Okanagan Valley. After wineries finish pressing grapes, the pomace (skins and seeds)are left over, with a great deal of flavour and nutrients attached. We take those products, dehydrate and mill them down into a flour-like powder, and turn them into this innovative new product, which can then be used in many dishes.

The flavour is already delicious, but to bring out even more of the grape taste mix it with any kind of fat; butter, oil, yogurt, for example, and let it sit overnight or for a few hours. The flavour gets stronger the longest it rests! It can be used virtually everywhere – savory or sweet – so experiment and tell us what you like. 

Try it in:

  • Smoothies

  • Sauces

  • Cereal or yogourt

  • Meat rub or marinade

  • Reductions

  • Bannock
