Grapes are a fantastic source of energy: 72kcal per100g at 81% water. They’re also rich in minerals and micro-minerals such as potassium (average 245mg per 100g) and phosphorus.
Grapes contain large quantities of calcium and magnesium, which fight fatigue and cramp, and a good amount of zinc, one of the key minerals involved in the function of cells in the body.
They contain very little sodium, which is good for those who have to watch their salt intake.
Grapes contain a little Vitamin C (7mg per 100g), lots of B vitamins (especially B1 and B5 which fight cramp, and B3 which is especially good for the skin and prolonging that summer tan!)
