The article discusses advances in the understanding of grape tannins, their formation in grapes, their impact on wine quality and their measurement. Tannins are complex and vary according to plant source. Grape varieties have different tannin content. Several research have been undertaken in order to develop a simple measure of total tannins.

    We examined the presence of selective consumption against tannins in acorns as a pre-ingestive countermeasure to plant secondary metabolites by using the Japanese wood mouse ( Apodemus speciosus) and acorns of Quercus serrata, which contained ca. 6.4% tannins on a dry weight basis. In addition,...

    Low molecular weight phenolic compounds (LMWP) contribute to astringency and bitterness, two important sensory attributes. This work aimed to study the interactions between human saliva and a group of LMWP from a grape seed extract, namely, monomers, dimers and trimers of flavan-3-ol plus gallic...
