Recent data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey says Concord Grape juice has cancer fighting phenolics & flavonoids. People who ate purple/blue fruits & veggies on a regular basis had a lowered risk of metabolic syndrome. (Metabolic syndrome is a condition in which a group of risk factors for heart disease, including stroke, &Type 2 diabetes occur together Uof Wisconsin found that people who drank 2 cups of Concord grape juice daily for 2 weeks had more flexable arteries

Usually high-fiber, low-cal, filling real fruit is always better than fruit juice. Toss blueberries into breakfast cereal, or purple grapes into your salads. Use grape juice in replacement of red wine in your cooking.

    Never in a million years would I ever had thought to use grape juice instead of red wine in a recipe - now I'm encouraged to try it. Thanks~
