But an even greater part of the reason involves the amazing nutrient composition of grapes themselves. Every year, it seems like the list of health-supportive grape nutrients grow longer, and it can be challenging just to keep up with the many phytonutrients provided by this popular food.

Phenolic compounds in this superfruit—including flavonoids, carotenoids, and triterpenoids—make this fruit a choice for anti-inflammatory and antioxidant health benefits.

One of the challenges that bother me the most is seeing our kids overweight and unhealthy. Each day on the radio and television broadcasts I discuss a variety of topics and latest health news. When I started seeing the trends in our young people such as 1 out of 3 of kids under the age of 11 being diagnosed with diabetes.

Given their exceptionally strong nutrient composition, we've been surprised at the relatively small amount of research specifically focused on green peas as a health-supporting food. Green peas have been largely overlooked in research studies on legumes, which have tended to concentrate only on beans.

These research trends are ones that we would really like to see reversed! Due to the lack of wide-scale health research on green peas, many of the connections that we would expect to see need further research substantiation.
