Australian Harvest Fine Foods is producing a range of organic grape- and wine-based pastes designed to be served with cheeses. The pastes come in dome-shaped plastic tubs that can be a centrepiece for a cheese platter and served with Bio-Grape Fine Water Crackers, which are fortified with grape-seed extract. Australian Harvest Pastes and Crackers are made with extracts from the skins and seeds of red-wine grapes called BIO-GRAPE. BIO-GRAPE is extracted from the marc (from the French word meaning 'to press') of red-wine grapes. Marc consists of the residual skin and seed removed from the wine after crushing. The dark colour pigments from the grape skins give the BIO-GRAPE- based pastes a very high Oxygen Radical Absorption Capacity (ORAC) rating. A food's ORAC measures its ability to neutralise free radicals and protect the body from ageing and degenerative disease.

'Healthier' milk for China
Australian dairy company Montec International has brought its 'healthier'-milk product to China. The company owns the Asia-Pacific licensing rights to a mono-unsaturated milk, Mono-Premix, or milk that has had all the animal fat removed and replaced with vegetable fat. This makes it naturally low in fat and cholesterol. It has been sold for 10 years in Australia under the Farmer's Best brand, but China is the first international market for the product. Montec is working with Beijing dairy Sanyuan foods, which has started full-scale production for distribution in Shanghai and Beijing. Other distributors will launch the product in Shenzhen, Fujian province and Dalian. Montec has adapted the taste to Chinese preferences for a lighter, sweeter milk compared to the 'green' fresh milk preferred by Australians.
