Home made wine - Why is it so Healthy
Red wines also differ more in style than whites. This is partly due to the fact that technologists outspent styling of a red wine (ie more ways to manipulate the wine to change the phases of the production process to finally get a certain type or style of wine they want). For example, if winemakers leave the juice in contact with the skins for a long time, the wine becomes more tannic, more tart in the mouth, like strong tea (highly tannic wines can make your gums slight tingle, feel a sense of astringency). On the other hand, if Vintners squeeze the juice from the skins faster, the wine is softer and less tannic.
We assume that the majority of our readers well know that red wines are consumed more often with food than a drink alone.
Red wine for a Long Life
+ Wine really is the key to health and longevity and it has been proven in the mid-90s of XX century. It contains a substance called resveratrol (one of polyphenols in red wine), which is ideal cell longevity provocateur! Fact.
- In addition, red wine has a lot of histamine compounds that 99% of people accept well, though in some rare cases can cause sensitivity issues. Another aspect discussed by the people interested in wine and health is the content of sulphites in it.
Wine contains sulfites
The sulfur dioxide (silica), a compound prepared from sulfur and oxygen, is obtained naturally in very small amounts during fermentation. Vintners also add it. Sulfur dioxide is to wine what to people is the combination of aspirin and vitamin B complex - the wonder drug that cures all diseases and prevents others. Sulphur dioxide is an antibacterial agent that prevents the wine to turn into vinegar. It stops the yeast, not to continue the fermentation of sweet wines after they are in the bottle. It is an antioxidant that keeps the wine fresh and untouched by the demon called oxygen. Despite these its magical properties winemakers try to use sulfur dioxide as little as possible because most believe in the maxim that the less you add to a wine, the better - just as many people prefer to take minimal amounts of drugs.
About 5% of people with asthma are highly sensitive to sulfites. To protect them, the law states the label of each wine that contains more than 10 parts per million of sulfites to write "Contains sulfites."
