A team of scientists in Australia and Canada have discovered 23 new molecules in red wine that may contribute to wine’s already known health benefits.
The research study, published in “Rapid Communications in Mass Spectrometry,” was conducted using Agilent’s 1290 Infinity Series UHPLC and 6530 Accurate Mass Q-TOF LC/MS.
Although the researchers already knew that molecules called stilbenoids were present in red wine, they did not know the extent of them, many of which had never before been detected. The newly discovered molecules are related to resveratrol, a natural wine chemical found in the skin of red grapes known to have potential effects of preventing aging-related human diseases.
According to the researchers, the discovery could lead to medical breakthroughs, including new drugs.
