A grape is the fruit, botanically a true berry, that grows on woody vines. Grapes can be eaten raw or used for making jam, juice, jelly, vinegar, wine, grape seed extracts, raisins, and grape seed oil.

In most of Europe, dried grapes are referred to as “raisins” or the local equivalent. A raisin is any dried grape. While raisin is a French loanword, the word in French refers to the fresh fruit; grappe (from which the English grape is derived) refers to the bunch (as in une grappe de raisins). A currant is a dried Zante Black Corinth grape.

Health Benefits of Grapes

Apart from potential benefits of alcohol (produced from grapes)  itself, including reduced platelet aggregation and vasodilation, polyphenols (e.g., resveratrol) in the grape skin provide other health benefits, such as:
– Reducing susceptibility to vascular damage
– Decreased activity of angiotensin, thus helping lower blood pressure
– Increased production of the vasodilator hormone, nitric oxide
Although adoption of wine consumption is not recommended by some health authorities, a significant volume of research indicates moderate consumption, such as one glass of red wine a day for women and two for men, may confer health benefits. Emerging evidence is that wine polyphenols like resveratrol provide physiological benefit whereas alcohol itself may have protective effects on the cardiovascular system.
Resveratrol
Grape phytochemicals such as resveratrol (an antioxidant), have been positively linked to inhibiting any cancer, heart disease, degenerative nerve disease, viral infections and mechanisms of Alzheimer’s disease.Fresh grape skin contains about 50 to 100 micrograms of resveratrol per gram.
