Our commitment is to always offer you the best quality grapes, and to get this aim we use traditional methods together with the latest technologies.

It is a unique grape selected and picked manually, cluster by cluster, when it reaches its optimum ripening point.

We carefully choose the varieties we grow in our fields, so that we can produce the best and sweetest grapes.

SEEDLESS

Seedless grapes are the stars of our work. We offer seedless grapes to encourage and facilitate the consumption of grapes, especially for children.

Seedless grapes are available all year round. When the harvest in Spain has finished, we look for them in other countries so that grapes are always available and the consumer can keep enjoying them.

OUR HEALTHY GRAPE

BENEFITS

Grapes provide great health benefits due to its large amount of nutrients, such as its powerful antioxidants, multiple vitamins and numerous minerals.

The most important element among the phytonutrients in grapes is a “family” of compounds called polyphenols. All red, green and black grapes contain polyphenols. They are found in each part of the grape: skin, flesh and seeds. These polyphenols promote antioxidant activity and assist in cell-to-cell transmissions. Certain studies suggest that polyphenols contribute to heart health, also suggesting that they may also play a role in healthy aging.

Resveratrol is some kind of “celebrity” in the polyphenol family as it has drawn lots of scientific and media attention. Resveratrol is being studied around the world for a wide range of potential health benefits, including the heart, and defense against certain cancers.  Grapes are one of the main natural dietary sources of resveratrol.

In addition, grapes hold hundreds of compounds that also are present in other natural plants, including many other polyphenols, which can work combined with resveratrol to offer potential health benefits.

VITAMINS C AND K

One cup of grapes contains 25% of the recommended daily intake of vitamin C. It is important for the growth and repair of body tissue, it helps in the healing of wounds and in dental health. Grapes are also some excellent source of vitamin K, which helps in blood clotting and is essential to have strong bones and to prevent heart disease.

POLYPHENOLS

Polyphenols are micronutrients that play a role in the prevention of degenerative diseases. Resveratrol, a type of polyphenol, is found in the skin of green, red and black grapes. Some studies suggest that it may offer even more health benefits.

ANTIOXIDANTS

Antioxidants help defense against harmful free radicals that can act against healthy cells. It has been proved that grapes increase the activity of these defense channels, including the production of glutathione, the most abundant cellular antioxidant in the heart.

FIBER

Whole or crushed grapes contain fiber. Dietary fiber, as part of a healthy diet, helps reduce blood cholesterol levels and can lower the risk of heart disease. Keep in mind that fruit juices contain little or no fiber.
