Can Chardonnay grape seeds help you lose weight? The idea seems to have potential:
USDA researchers looking for a use for this waste in Albany, Calif. turned the chardonnay grape seeds into flour. In testing the flour on lab hamsters, the researchers found that despite feeding the hamsters a high-fat diet, the chardonnay grape seed flour seemed to prevent cholesterol increases and weight gain in the animals. The researchers also observed positive changes to the hamstersâ€™ metabolic systems, specifically the cholesterol and fat metabolism–which supported the previous outcomes they measured.
