Let’s look at the facts
Edenvale is non-intoxicating
The average finished alcohol level of the Edenvale range is approximately 0.2 – 0.3% Alcohol/Volume.
The International Standard for a Non Intoxicating beverage is 0.5% Alc/Vol (of which Edenvale is nearly half) below this level the regulatory body, Food Standards of Australia and New Zealand, do not require producers to include any statement of alcohol content or standard drinks.
Edenvale has nearly half the calories of normal wine
When alcohol is removed from a wine, so too are large quantities of calories.
Alcohol is created from the fermentation of natural sugars found in the grape, hence, the strong relationship between alcohol, sugar and therefore – calories.
The removal of alcohol from wine translates to a reduction in calories to below 0.5% ABV (out), depending on the total extraction volume. For example, the removal of 13% alcohol by volume translates to over 60 % calorie reduction. Weight watchers reference – 0.5 point per serve.
* This calorie count does not include any additional mixers. A “standard drink” = 10 grams of alcohol (232kj or 56 calories). 1 gram of sugar = 4 calories
** Assuming a person is of average fitness and weight this shows the time required to burn off calories

Edenvale is a lifestyle wine beverage it has with the taste and full complexity of regular alcoholic wine but while with the being alcohol removed. Delicate alcohol extraction technology is used to ensure varietal definition and flavours are retained in the finished product so consumers can still enjoy a “wine experience” without the effect of alcohol.
Edenvale wines are included in the ‘functional food’ and lifestyle category of food and beverages.
Polyphenols (natural plant chemicals) found in the skin of grapes work as antioxidants that may protect your cells from free radical damage and therefore premature ageing. Red wines have more polyphenols than white because the prolonged grape skin contact before making white wines. Although while the levels are higher in red, research with the CSIRO with Invitro trials, it would appear that the bio absorbance is the same within red and whites. This is an area in which Edenvale is continuing to research.
