About muscadine grapes

Native to North America, the muscadine grape is essentially a nutritional powerhouse. In the American South, the numerous strains of muscadine grapes have grown to be a delicacy, and many states have vineyards producing muscadine and scuppernong wine. Unlike bunch table grapes, muscadine grapes are picked individually, often without a stem, have large edible seeds, and a thick slip skin. 

Like most other vibrantly colored fruits, vegetables, and berries, muscadine grapes are rich in polyphenols — particularly the compound resveratrol (contained in the skins and edible seeds). These grapes have recently come back into popularity due to this high polyphenol content. Polyphenols are compounds used in natural and traditional medicinal practices because of their powerful antioxidant effects.

A single 4-ounce serving contains 4.5 grams of fiber, 15 grams of carbohydrates, 1 gram of protein, and around 65 calories. This high fiber content is found in the seeds and skins and is great for preventing digestive issues. Additionally, resveratrol has been shown to lower low-density lipoprotein (bad cholesterol) levels, increase vascular function, decrease oxidative cell stress, and fight chronic inflammation. It also lowers the chances of blood clots, helping to reduce heart attack and stroke risk.

FAQs About Muscadine Grapes

Muscadine describes a variety of grapes actually comprising many different varieties of black and bronze grapes. Scuppernongs are essentially one variety, or cultivar, of muscadines. Thus, not all muscadines are scuppernongs, but all scuppernongs are muscadines. Muscadines are black or dark purple in appearance, while scuppernongs are green or bronze. Wine made from muscadines is red, whereas wine made from scuppernongs is white in color. Muscadines are sweet, and scuppernongs are more tart and acidic.

Aside from the obvious (wine), muscadine grapes have many wonderful uses. They're ideal for juices since as they mature, the color and sugar content increase. Muscadine grapes also make great jams, preserves, jellies, and butters. Preserves typically contain large pieces of grapes, while jellies and jams are made from the juice of the grapes. Muscadine grape butter can be made by cooking the grapes into a smooth, thick spread after removing the seeds and skins. Muscadine grapes, especially the hulls, are often used to make pies, cobblers, and sometimes cakes.
