Yes..! 50/50 grapes, we all have someone in the family that doesn’t like a particular colour of a grape, this way everyone is happy.  These grapes are great to decorate fruit bowls to make them look more colourful and appetising as this will encourage everyone towards the fruit, give it a go just drape both colours over the top of your fruit and watch them disappear… Grapes will keep for a few days at room temperature but if you need them to last longer just pop them in the fridge to keep them at their best…

The combination of unique texture and sweet, tart flavor has made grapes an ever popular between-meal snack as well as a refreshing addition to both fruit and vegetable salads. Some contain edible seeds while others are seedless, most of our grapes are seedless unless we state otherwise. Like blueberries, grapes are often covered by a protective, whitish bloom. Grapes that are eaten as is or used in a recipe are called table grapes and as opposed to wine grapes (used in viniculture) or raisin grapes (used to make dried fruit).

Description

50/50 Grapes

White/green seedless grapes mixed evenly with red/purple seedless grapes.  Grapes are a good source of vitamin A, C and K, copper, and iron.  A typical 10g portion contains 69 calories, 0.16g fat and 18g carbohydrate.

Several grape phytonutrients are now believed to play a role in longevity. At the top of the list in this area of research is resveratrol (a stilbene phytonutrient present mostly in grape skins, but also in grape seeds and grape flesh). Resveratrol has recently been shown to increase expression of three genes all related to longevity. (These three genes are SirT1s, Fox0s, and PBEFs.) Interestingly, some researchers have shown a parallel between activation of these longevity genes by resveratrol and activation by calorie-restricted diets. In aging and longevity research, our ability to get optimal nutrition for the fewest possible amount of calories is related to our longevity, and the more we can decrease our calories while staying optimally nourished, the better our chances of healthy aging and longevity.
