Paulk Vineyards Makes History with Nutraceutical Powders from America’s Native Grape
Wray, GA, April 23, 2004 – Paulk Vineyards, Inc., the world’s largest and most well-established muscadine grape vineyard, will introduce the first retail finished products and standardized ingredients made from muscadine grapes, at the upcoming Supply Side East International Trade Show being held at the Baltimore Convention Center May 5-7, 2004 (www.supplysideshow.com).
Muscadine grapes, America’s native grapes, have been shown to contain one of the highest levels of total antioxidants and ellagic acid of any fruit tested. Recent research at the University of Georgia’s Nutraceuticals Research Laboratory and other collaborating universities shows that muscadine grapes have a higher phenolic content than any other type of grape with extremely high levels of flavonoids, anthocyanins, and flavonols. Because of these rich phytochemicals, the muscadine grapes have been shown to help combat free radicals and possess powerful anti-inflammatory bioactivities benefiting cardiovascular and digestive health and relieving muscular and joint pains. Paulk Vineyards’ line of muscadine grape nutraceutical powders is available as finished products or as standardized ingredients to companies who wish to offer the powerful phytochemical composition found only in the muscadine grapes in their finished products.
During the event, executives from Paulk Vineyards, as well as members of the University of Georgia’s Nutraceuticals Research Laboratory, will be present to answer questions about this biomedical research and meet with executives and representatives from the cosmetics, functional foods, dietary supplements, and botanicals industries to discuss how Paulk Vineyards muscadine grape nutraceutical powders can add great value to current lines of products.
During the show, Paulk Vineyards will exhibit in booth # 1822 and will use this event to showcase its innovative products and research.
