Health benefits of White wine boosts up

A recent study by scientists says Red wine and White wine carries same health benefits. The white wine, from Israel, has improved levels of plant chemicals that are believed to fight heart disease. White wine is however not made with grape skins and hence lacks health-offering polyphenols. But researchers at Technion, the Israeli Institute of Technology, have engaged a way to enhance white wine polyphenols six-fold.

The method comprises incubating squeezed grapes in the existence of alcohol for 18 hours before taking away their skins. The polyphenol-charged wine appears and tastes alike as regular white wine but also has the same antioxidant movement as red wine. There has been an unbelievable response from those that have heard about the study with many thinking of taking up drinking white wine more seriously.
