hello everyone! I just recently opted to live a healthy lifestyle. Now, I read somewhere that wines are used to enhance flavor and taste when it comes to cooking. Can I apply this to organic and healthy cooking? What are the health benefits if there are any?

Thanks everyone! I'm looking forward to all of your insights! :-D

Welcome to the WineBoard. Of course wine can be used in organic and healthy cooking. And there are very good organically grown wines.

The health benefits go on and on. There have been lots of studies done and many books written on the subject. Here is a link to one book you may want to check out. It is available from the Gift Shop... it's called "Age Gets Better with Wine, New Science for a Healthier, Better and Longer Life":

Keep us posted on your healthy lifestyle advances.

I hope I am not too late in posting!! Wine is a very interesting ingredient that can be added when cooking, it could promote the flavor of the food. It is best noticed with foods like red meat, sea foods, pasta and also soups. Wine helps in digestion as it has a positive approach in controlling cholesterol hence lowering the risk of nay heart disease. It also contains less calories and off course it can be included in your cooking for a healthy lifestyle. I personally use red wine in my cooking for meats and pastas.

Hope I helped!!

Can you cite the studies that make those claims? I'd like to read them.

It's all bogus, Thomas, and you know it as well as I and many others here do. I don't understand how people can make claims like those above with a straight face, knowing full well they're false. Either that or they've heard something outlandish like this and don't know enough to check out whether or not they're true.

Youse 2 kill-joys! Based on the above I intended to start a wine-drinking regimum so I could prolong me existance. SHEESH!!!!! ww

I'm being subtle these days. I figure that a few schmoes will believe anything they read (I mean, this is the information age on the Internet!).

I wanted to plant the concept of verification in people's heads.

Oh, I get it. If you read it on the internet, it must be true. After all, Al Gore "invented" the internet, so everything you read there is the gospel truth. God help us!! We are so heading for the Armagedon (sp).
