Canadian Grapes Used as Health Supplements

Wine is big business for grape growers in Canada’s Niagara region which is the heartland of Canada’s grape-growing industry. It’s already famous for its rich ice wines, it Rieslings, Chardonnays, and Cabernets and now its making a name for itself in the health supplements industry. 

The Southbrook vineyard is the first of its kind to harness organic pomace – turning it into a potent anti-oxidant for use in cooking, on salads or in smoothies.While the world’s thirst for wine certainly isn’t waning – the opportunity to tap into the health supplements industry is perhaps too lucrative to ignore. Pressed and now powdered, there’s ever more profit to be squeezed from the humble grape.
