Mary asked the Naked Scientists:

I do not particularly like alcohol but I would like the benefits of resveratrol, so my question is; will cooking the alcohol out of the wine change or lessen the benefits of resveratrol?

What do you think?

Oh, totally. Absolutely. Definitely.


I mean, NO.


[gosh - really should have cooked that coq-au-vin a little longer....]   ;)


What I mean is: you still get all the good stuff from cooking with wine (especially red wine!) minus the alcohol.


After all, the French cannot possibly be wrong when it comes to matters of cuisine.
And to enjoy it fully it is suggested not to pour the whole bottle into the pot but keep a glass or two for the chef
 ;D

Hi everybody,

I'm sure we are referring to boiled wine, or mulled wine, in Italy "vin brulè", a popular drink in the freezing winter evenings in the Alps.
It's considered a remedy for colds and flu, with added spices and those good polyphenols including resveratrol.
You can get much more resveratrol in capsules these days, one cap giving you the same amount hidden in 5-10 bottles of wine if you believe that's so good for you...
What the heck...let's stick to the original recipe!
