According to research, the percentage of Filipino households that do not fulfill their dietary energy requirements has been increasing. On the latest Food Consumption Survey by the Food and Nutrition Research Institute of the Department of Science and Technology in 2013, it was revealed that 69.3% did not fulfill their dietary energy requirements – higher by 2.4% than the previous survey in 2008.

In addition, research says Filipinos are only able to meet 39% of the daily 400 grams of fruits and vegetables suggested by the World Health Organization. With less of the important naturally occurring nutrients from fruits – such as polyphenols from grapes that help the heart – individuals are exposed to risks of lifestyle diseases such as cardiovascular disorders.

WELCH's 100% grape juice variants
Experts recommend 100% fruit juices as healthy complements to whole fruits. While whole fruits are a great source of fiber, 100% fruit juices also carry essential vitamins and minerals needed by the body to function well and prevent many chronic diseases. For instance, 8 ounces of pure fruit juice such as Welch’s 100% grape juice is equivalent to serving a whole cup of fruit.

In fact, drinking 100% fruit juice from grapes may actually provide you with more polyphenols than eating the fruit, without causing weight gain. Making a pure grape juice involves crushing the fruit, including seeds and dark purple skin, which releases more of these nutrients. In addition, pure fruit juice only uses naturally occurring fruit sugars, without any added sugars. More than a decade’s worth of research suggests that 100% grape juice can help support a healthy heart.
