Healthy and tasty Easter Ciabatta with grape seed flour
Grape seed flour is a dark brown flour that is obtained from the seeds of grapes. It is particularly rich in OPC (oligomeric proanthocyanidins), a phytochemical. OPC has an antioxidant effect and binds free radicals, which attack the body cells and cause oxidative stress. Since OPC is heat-resistant, grape seed flour is ideal for making desserts, cakes or bread. It can be replaced by 5-10% of the flour content specified in the recipe.
The fountain of youth flour
Grape seed flour ensures that the skin cells are supplied with sufficient oxygen and nutrients and is an excellent anti-aging agent. The antioxidant OPC contained in the flour is one of the strongest and most effective antioxidants. The antioxidant effect of OPC is significantly stronger than e.g. that of vitamin E and vitamin C and also has anti-inflammatory effects.
The most important property of OPC with regard to our skin is that the phytochemical can repair collagen that has become “brittle”. This leads to skin regeneration and tightening and supports collagen synthesis. Fragile, unstable collagen usually shows up in wrinkled skin. By adding OPC, the skin can become firmer and wrinkle-free again.
In addition, the OPC contained in the grape seed flour can also be effective against cardiovascular diseases and other diseases that are related to oxidation and collagen-forming processes.
