Q. Dear Terry, “I am wondering if grape juice would be as beneficial for a person as wine and/or grapes. Also, what kind of wine? There seem to be thousands! Thanks.”— Virginia L., Port Lucie, FL
A. Dear Virginia, Yes, grape juice is excellent for those who want to have the benefits of grapes but can’t or don’t want to consume alcohol. Dark red and purple grapes tend to be higher in antioxidants than white or green grapes, so make sure you choose a red/purple grape juice. When it comes to picking out a wine, high price does not convey any extra benefit. So, if you already have a favorite red wine, you are good to go!
