Grapes are one of the oldest cultivated fruits and were domesticated before 5,000 B.C.
If you want to get the most health benefits out of eating grapes then choose red or black grapes
over white or green.
Grapes have about 35 calories in ten seedless grapes, .3g protein, 8.9g carbs, 1g fiber, 105mg potassium, 5.4mg vitamin C, .05mg thiamin, .03mg riboflavin and .15mg niacin.
Grapes are a great source of antioxidants and anticancer compounds, including flavonoids (anthocyanin), quercetin, and resveratol (red grape skin). Grapes can boost good type HDL cholesterol, are antibacterial, antiviral and have strong activity against cancers.
