Authors:K. U.Yadav || S.B.Swami. V, K.H.Pujari

Abstract:Grapes (vitis vinifera) belongs to the family Vitaceae is one of the major fruit crop. India ranks 11th in grape production with production of 1.8 million tons grapes from an area of 80,000 ha. Approximately 71% of world grape production is used for wine, 27% as fresh fruit and 2% as dried fruit. The value addition in grapes and diversification of grapes products also provide good returns to growers. The major consumption of grapes in India is a fresh fruit followed by resins, wine and juice while at global level 78 – 80 % grapes processed into wine followed by resins and juice. The fruits have appreciable amount of carbohydrates, protein, phytonutrients, polyphenols and contain other important vitamin such as vitamin A, vitamin K, vitamin C, vitamin B6 also rich in thiamine, riboflavin, niacin and minerals like potassium, calcium, magnesium, phosphorous and sodium. Grapes have higher water content (86 to 88%) that helps in keeping the body hydrated and also contain dietary fiber, healthy carbs, antioxidants angoramoderate amount of protein. Grapes also useful for indigestion, breast cancer, blood cholesterol, kidney disorders, antibacterial activity, protection against sunburns, skin softener, fight diabetes, immune system. Value added products of grapes are grape resins, grape wine, grape juice, grape vinegar, grape pekmez, grape verjus, sweet spreads (jam, jelly, butter and marmalade). These value added products are useful for control diabetes, treat anemia, care fever, eye care, prevent acidosis, promote bone health and dental care. Value additional products from grapes need to high moisture, generally acidic food that is relatively easy to process and that offers a variety of flavor, aroma, colour and calories but are an excellent source of directly fibers and essential vitamins.
