Health & Nutrition
First grown in Massachusetts nearly 170 years ago, the Concord grape is an original American superfruit!
Concord grapes are distinct from the everyday grapes you’ll typically get in the grocery store. They have thick, dark purple skins and crunchy seeds, which is where you’ll find the health-promoting plant nutrients – or polyphenols – behind the grape’s superfruit status.
The Concord grape isn’t only super delicious and nutritious – it’s also super hard to find fresh. That’s because it grows only in specific regions and its harvest season is short — just a few weeks each fall.
But, don’t despair! Each glass of 100% grape juice is made with whole Concord grapes – skins, seeds and all – and absolutely no added sugar. So, you can enjoy the naturally big taste and polyphenol power of the Mighty Concord all year, wherever you live.
1. Heart Health
Decades worth of research says that thanks to the dark purple Concord grape and its polyphenol power, 100% grape juice can help support a healthy heart. In fact, Concord grapes and their juice deliver many of the same polyphenols and heart health benefits as red wine.
One of the key ways that 100% grape juice supports heart health is by promoting healthy circulation, keeping your blood pumping and energy flowing.
