Add Extraordinary Health Benefits While Remaining Gluten Free
There are many benefits to using freshly ground, 80 mesh, additive and chemical free grapeseed powder in your gluten free formulas. Typically, the benefit of most gluten free flours (almond flour, coconut flour, tapioca starch, etc) ends with their lack of gluten. These flours tend to be higher in caloric value and deficient in nutrients, vitamins and minerals. Their sole purpose is to create a product without gluten. Why not create a product that’s gluten free, but also incredibly healthy as well?
Let’s take a look at calories. In general, the gluten free category encompasses products such as breads, cakes, cookies, and other starchy, typically high calorie foods. Traditional, all purpose white flour with gluten has about 30 calories per 8 g serving and no natural vitamins or minerals. Almond flour has about 45 calories per 8 g serving, and trace amounts of vitamin E, calcium and potassium. Coconut flour has about 37 calories per 8 g serving, and trace amounts of iron. Tapioca starch has about 29 calories per 8 g serving, and absolutely no vitamins or minerals. Royal Grapeseed’s Concord Grapeseed Flour has only 10 calories per 8 g serving, as well as protein, calcium, potassium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, zinc, and manganese.
Royal Grapeseed’s Concord Grapeseed Flour also contains powerful antioxidants including oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPCs) and polyphenols. Antioxidants fight free radicals in the body and allow a person to operate at their fullest potential. Grape seed antioxidants are known to improve blood pressure and heart health, memory and brain health, and even prevent some forms of cancer. These antioxidants are not found in other gluten free flours, and can add incredible label claims to your product allowing you to stand out from the competition.
Our Concord Grapeseed Flour is grown to an ultra smooth 80 mesh, and has virtually no flavor. Traditional grapeseed extracts are incredibly bitter, and contain up to 99% filler ingredients. Our grapeseed flour is a pure, single origin, one ingredient additive that will elevate your gluten free product with no negatives.
Our grapeseeds are grown, harvested, and processed in Upstate New York. We clean and dry the grapeseeds within 24 hours of the grapes being harvested in the vineyard. We press our grapes for juice and because they are not used for wine, there is no fermentation occurring so our grape seeds are not only unfermented, but also free of any sulfites.
