It All Started With A Grape
BioHarvest was born at the crossroads of raw food and technology. In the heart of Israel’s Agricultural and Biotechnology research industry, a biologist and a grape specialist uncovered a way to offer an alternative to wine without wine’s excessive sugar and alcohol content.
In 2001, their findings were confirmed in an article published by the prestigious scientific peer review journal “Nature” (“Endothelin-1 synthesis reduced by red wine”) (*2). The article demonstrated for the first time, that the polyphenols found in wine, like Resveratrol, Tannins and Quercetin, were linked to inhibiting the synthesis of endothelin-1(ET-1), which constricts blood vessels. In other words, the polyphenols found in red wine help maintain healthy blood circulation.
The real breakthrough however, came from nature itself, grapes or botanical berries direct from the vine which are a powerful source of polyphenols. The scientists’ discovery featured a dramatic shift in how to leverage nature through science by growing red grape cells in a nutrient solution (not soil) and cultivating the grapes into a fine powder without genetic engineering (Non-GMO). VINIA® is a source of polyphenols (40 mg) without the sugar, calories or alcohol found in wine and grapes.
VINIA is grown using a proprietary agricultural biofarming technology, a game-changing breakthrough known as hydroponics (growing plants and vegetables in nutrient solutions, in water without soil). This revolutionary farming method mirrors nature to create a fruit powder from the parent plant by growing fruit in nutritive liquid solution and ultimately harvesting the final product— a fruit powder.
Growing VINIA was the beginning of the revolutionary development of bio-superfood journey.
Unleash the Powder of Nature
Biofarming technology mirrors nature to create a fruit powder from the plant via a process that starts from planting fruit on nutritive liquid solutions and ultimately harvesting the final product – a fruit powder which is not genetically engineered (non-GMO).
BioHarvest products like VINIA are a close proxy to the consumption of large quantities of fresh fruits and vegetables without the parent plants’ undesirable components such as calories, sugar, residues from pesticides that are used in agricultural production.
While it started with just a grape, BioHarvest’s vision is to continue to expand the platform technology, cultivating fruits and vegetables into bio-superfoods.
