what is tannin

Kenneth Wine Cellars will share some knowledge and interesting facts about wine with you every Friday. Today I would like to share with you some knowledge about one of the important elements in red wine – tannin! Red wine contains antioxidants, and drinking it in moderation can help reduce the risk of cardiovascular and type 2 diabetes. Red wine contains several important ingredients, but it turns out that the benefits of red wine to the body come from tannins. Among the ingredients of red wine, except alcohol and water, the other ingredients are polyphenols. Polyphenols include levotannins, anthocyanins, resveratrol, and about 5,000 plant compounds. Among the many polyphenols, proanthocyanidins have the most positive impact on health. Proanthocyanidin is a concentrated tannin that can be found in green tea and chocolate! Proanthocyanidins are very helpful in inhibiting blood clots. Appropriate intake can help the body achieve heart health and longevity. Taking young wine and old wine as an example, young red wine has a higher tannin content than any other wine. Everyone says that the older the wine is, the better it is, and the older it is, the more delicious it is, but if you think about it from a health perspective, it’s a different story! Of course, no matter how beneficial any wild food is, it is important to absorb it in an appropriate amount. If you drink more than the right amount of alcohol, all the advantages are replaced by risks! Therefore, it is important not to overdo it and drink in moderation!
