Beef marinates better in red wine than in white wine

It is said that fish must be cooked in white wine but that red wine should be used to marinate and cook tough meats in order to tenderize them. It is also said that parsley must not be used if the marinating process lasts more than two days and that one should not roast marinated meats because roasting dries them out. How far should we credit these familiar dictums In 1995 Okuda and Ueda extended this study by analyzing samples of beef that were boiled after having been marinated in white wine, in red wine, and in solutions containing only certain components of wine. The samples used (cubes of meat weighing about 50 grams, or a bit less than 2 ounces) were marinated for three days, then boiled for ten minutes or so. The outer part and the inner part were analyzed separately. The water content and mass of the samples marinated in red wine were slightly greater than those of the samples marinated in white wine, but the masses of dry matter were about the same. In other words, red wine...

Red wine polyphenolics

The well publicized French paradox means that when in France one can eat and drink with abandon without fear of becoming obese. Red wine consumption has often been cited as the protective factor in this phenomenon. The good news is that there may well be a scientific basis for this happy situation. Pal et al. (2004) studied the impact of acute consumption of red wine polyphenolics in postmenopausal women. They found that red wine polyphenolics attenuate postprandial chylomicron and chylomicron remnant levels in plasma, possibly by delaying absorption of dietary fat.

Grape Seeds and Red Wine

The cardioprotective effect of polyphenolic compounds in certain foods is supported by epidemiological studies.14 Wu et al. looked at the flavonoids in red wine and purple grape juice, examining their antioxidant capacities and platelet aggregation reducing properties. Moderate consumption of red wine was determined to be associated with decreased risk of CVD.15 A short-term study administering red wine polyphenolic compounds (RWPCs) to rats investigated hemodynamic measures and vascular reactivity. The rats received intragastric administration of 5 glucose or 20 mg kg of red wine polyphenolic compounds for 7 days. In the animals receiving the RWPCs, a progressive decrease in systolic blood pressure was observed after day 4 of the study. The aortas of these animals also displayed increased endothelium-depen-dent relaxation to acetylcholine that was related to increased endothelial NO activity and involved a mechanism sensitive to superoxide anion scavengers. According to a plasma...

The same wellcalibrated glass is best for both white and red wines

Standards organizations such as the iso and inao have stepped in to regulate glassware without having first determined the exact effects of form and shape on perception. It is for reasons of habit, not science, that red wine is served in glasses that are more voluminous than those used for white wine, and mellow wines are served in glasses whose opening is larger than those meant for dry wines.

Oxidative Stress as a Risk Factor

It is possible that the age-dependent progressive increases in brain oxidative stress contributes or facilitates AD lesions. This hypothesis would indicate the convenience of effective measures to prevent and treat brain oxidative stress. However, until now, there have not been conclusive studies demonstrating efficacy of vitamin C and E in arresting or significantly delaying the onset of AD. More recently, the use of agents capable of crossing the blood-brain barrier, such as lipoic or dehydroascorbic acids, has been suggested (Harman, 2006). There is a large list of antioxidant compounds that have been suggested as beneficial to prevent or delay AD including defined chemical entities or natural products such as green tea, ginkgo biloba, red wine, blueberries, etc. Some effort is being made to define the efficacy of defined extracts (e.g., from blueberries or spinach) and of assessing their effects in suitable cell and animal models (Joseph, Shukitt-Hale, & Casadesus, 2005). Although...

Hierarchical Linear Models

Let's think for a moment about a lifetime of booze consumption. We are not passing judgment in doing so unlike the prohibitionists, we prefer to point out that moderate drinking, particularly of red wine at an average of two glasses per day, apparently confers a health benefit, to the tune of a 10 reduction in overall mortality far better, we might point out, than cholesterol-lowering drugs (although apparently ethanol is one, and certainly one of the most pleasant, at that). A small hooker is that those concerned with alcohol consumption regard the same two glasses a day as borderline alcoholism in North America (although in Europe, it's probably five glasses per day, and in Russia, we imagine that anything less than five bottles of vodka a day is viewed as abstaining).

Other food and food components of interest

Anthocyanins are phenolic phytochemicals used for the coloring of foods and widely distributed in human diets through crops, beans, fruits, vegetables and red wine. In one study,180 it was found that dietary supplementation with anthocyanins (cyanidin 3-O-P-D-glucoside-rich purple corn color) suppressed the development of high-fat-diet-induced obesity and insulin resistance in mice the effect was not due to reduced energy intake or fat absorption, and was accompanied by reduced expression of key enzymes and transcription factors for fatty acid and triacylglycerol synthesis in both liver and WAT. These results suggest that anthocyanins may constitute functional food factors of benefit in the prevention of obesity and diabetes, probably by targeting lipogenesis (effects on energy expenditure thermogenesis were not addressed in the above study, and remain to be investigated).

Classification And Abundance

As discussed, flavonoids have been found in high concentrations in a wide variety of fruits, vegetables, and beverages such as red wine and tea. However, the various classes of flavonoids and specific flavonoids are concentrated in specific foods or beverages. For example, green tea and cocoa are sources of flavanols such as catechin and epicatechin, citrus fruits are excellent sources of flavanones such as naringenin and hesperetin, and berry fruits have high concentrations of anthocyanins such as cyanidin and malvidin. Table 13.1 highlights some of the main dietary sources of the different groups of flavonoids and the polyphenol content of each flavonoid.

Mitochondrial Electron Transport and Lifespan

Sir-2 has been postulated to play a role in lifespan-extension by CR, and mediates chromatin silencing through histone deacetylase activity that depends on NAD (107). The transgene of sir-2.1, one of four in the C. elegans SIR-2 family extends the lifespan. This extended lifespan is suppressed by daf-16 mutation and is not promoted by daf-2 mutation, indicating that SIR-2.1 functions upstream of daf-16 in the insulin IGF-I signaling pathway (108). In yeast, CR extends the lifespan by increasing the activity of Sir-2. Resveratrol, a polyphenol found in red wine, stimulates the activity of SIRT1, a human Sir-2 homologue, and increases DNA stability and extends the lifespan of yeast, C. elegans, and Drosophila (109).

Nutritional Recommendations

The current European nutritional recommendations for people with diabetes (1999) state 'For those who choose to drink alcohol, intakes of up to 15 g for women and 30 g for men are acceptable' per day (4,5). This equates to one small (125 ml) glass of wine (12 abv) or 1.5 units for women per day and two small glasses of wine (12 abv) for men, which equates to 3 units. However, many wines have a higher alcohol content and many people would regularly drink a larger measure. The present consensus outlined in the European and American nutritional recommendations for people with diabetes concludes that there are benefits (unless medically contraindicated) from light to moderate alcohol intakes taken with a carbohydrate-containing meal. Moderate intakes of wine, especially red wine, which contains non-nutrient flavonoid and phenolic compounds, which have antioxidant properties, may confer greater benefit than consumption of spirits or beer (6). Much of the evidence from studies is based on...

Coronary Heart Disease

Antioxidants in alcoholic beverages, especially polyphenolic compounds in red wine, have been proposed as an important contributory factor to the protective effect of regular alcohol use against atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease, by reducing oxidative damage to LDL, reducing its potential atherogenicity. The unique cardioprotective properties of red wine reside in the action of flavonoids which are minimal in white wine (except champagne). These flavonoids, especially resveratrol and quercetin, confer more potent antioxidant properties than alpha-tocopherol (32). These phenolic compounds found in wine are also thought to decrease platelet aggregation and prevent thrombus formation.

Antioxidant Activities Of Flavonoids

Oxidative stress and reactive oxygen species are major factors in the pathophysiology of CVD. The protective mechanism of flavonoids associated with reducing CVD is believed to be due to the potent antioxidant and free radical scavenging abilities that prevent oxidation of LDL.12 Cao et al. studied the serum antioxidant capacities of eight elderly women after intake of strawberries, spinach, red wine, and vitamin C to determine which antioxidant nutrients provided the best protection. The study indicated that the potentially important antioxidants other than vitamin C contained in the foods consumed produced over 80 of the total antioxidant capacity. Cao et al. concluded that the consumption of the rich antioxidant phenolic compounds contained in strawberries, spinach, and red wine are able to increase serum antiox-idant capacities in humans.3

Phytochemicals As Nutraceuticals

This term was originally coined to describe substances, present in vegetable extracts, responsible for converting animal skin into leather. The molecular weight of these compounds is in the range 500 to 3000 Da. Tannins are classified into two categories hydrolyzable and nonhydrolyzable or condensed tannins. Hydrolyzable tannins contain a central core of polyhydric alcohol such as glucose, and a hydroxyl group, which are esterified partially or wholly by gallic acid (gallotannins) or hexahydrox-ydiphenic acid (ellagitannins). Hydrolyzable tannins occur in seed pods, bark and wood, fruits, and leaves or galls of plants belonging to the families Leguminosae, Fabaceae, Combretaceae, and Anacardiaceae. Condensed tannins are more complex than hydrolyzable tannins and their complete structures are yet to be determined they are mainly the polymerized products of flavan-3-ols and flavan-3,4-diols or a mixture of the two. Condensed tannins are widely distributed in fruits, vegetables, forage,...

Contemporary Dietary Patterns that Work The Mediterranean Diet


8.3 RED WINE One of the best-known aspects of the Mediterranean diet is the potentially protective role that moderate consumption of red wine confers. In the late 1970s it was noted that avid drinkers of red wine in France had less heart disease than other Western populations, even though they consumed more saturated fat in their diet. This became known as the French Paradox . We now recognize that the presence of high concentrations of antioxidant polyphenolic bioflavonoids in red grape skins can help prevent vascular disease. The Mediterranean diet provides a variety of flavonols found in fruit, vegetables, and red wine, with onion being a very good source for this class of bioflavonoid, which include the bioactive molecules quercetin, myricetin, and isohamnetin among its ranks. Quercetin-3-glucuronide, for example, can suppress phospholipid peroxidation.

Conclusion And Therapeutic Outlook

The vitamins, tocopherol (vitamin E) and vitamin C are potent free-radical scavengers. However, although an important role of vitamin E for neuroprotection following amyloid A -peptide-mediated neuronal damage in vitro has been established, the DATATOP trial showed that it could not reduce the dosage of l-DOPA in PD, indicating that restriction of its site of action to specific compartments may not be sufficient for radical defense in PD or that the beginning of the therapeutic application might have been too late. Similarly, vitamin C, which acts synergistically with vitamin E in the inhibition of oxidation reactions, has been shown to act in a neuroprotective manner in various in vitro and in vivo experiments, when it is applied in the oxidized form such as dehydroascorbic acid. Other nutritional components which have shown antioxidative properties in animal models of PD and in vitro experiments include selenium, flavonoids (essential compound in green tea, red wine, blueberries,...

Basolateral p Blood

Taking 300 mg of tenofovir disoproxil per day exposes one to 0.035 grams of formaldehyde. To place this into perspective, two glasses of red wine will expose you to about 0.040 grams of methanol formaldehyde. Yes, one must be concerned with excessive formaldehyde exposure, but by any reasonable estimate most prodrugs will not add significantly greater methanol formaldehyde formate exposure than that seen in normal input from diet and the environment.


Curcumin (diferuloyulmethane) is a naturally occurring flavo-noid (polyphenol) present in the spice, turmeric, which has a long traditional use as a chemotherapeutic agent for many diseases. Curcumin is an active principal of the perennial herb Curcuma longa (commonly known as turmeric). Turmeric has a long traditional use in the Orient for many ailments, particularly as an anti-inflammatory agent. Recent studies have reported that curcumin inhibits NF-kB expression activation, tivation, cyclo-oxygenase (COX-2), HO-1,1L-8 release and neutrophil recruitment in the lungs (251). Curcumin has multiple properties to protect against cigarette smoke-mediated oxida-tive stress (251). It acts as an oxygen radical and a hydroxyl radical scavenger, which are formed by cigarette smoke, increases antioxidant glutathione levels by induction of g-GCS, and plays the role of an anti-inflammatory agent through the inhibition of NF-kB and IL-8 release in lung cells (252). Resveratrol, a flavanoid found...

Complex tannins

Geodesic Sphere Laser Template

This complex tannin is formed during the aging process of red wine, whereby the catechin unit originates from the grapes, and the ellagitannin, in this case vescalagin, originates from the oak barrels. Acutissimin A has been shown to be a powerful inhibitor of DNA topo-isomerase II, an enzyme required for the division of cancer cells, and a target for chemotherapeutic drugs (Quideau et al., 2003). Based on these findings, however, it is an overstatement to consider red wine a cancer preventative. Red wine contains other compounds with medicinal activity which will be discussed in more detail in Chapter 7.
