Everyone has their own taste preferences, and some of us prefer to avoid wines with high tannins. Tannins occur naturally in plants and in wine grapes. In wine, tannins are mainly water-soluble polyphenols. Polyphenols have remarkable antioxidant properties, anticancer properties, and antibacterial properties. However, some of us need to avoid them. Why?
About 25% of the population has a high sensitivity to bitter taste and this group is known as “super addicts”. If you don’t like bitter beers, kale, black coffee and radicchio, you might fall into this category. Not all tannins are bitter, but the tannins found in the stems and seeds of grapes are often so.
Some people believe they have a sensitivity to tannins. While there is little research on this topic, one study suggests that ingested tannins can affect energy metabolism, growth rate, and protein digestibility in laboratory animals. So, if your body digests nutrients less efficiently and you’re very sensitive to tea, coffee, red wine, cinnamon, and chocolate, then this could be you.
Since tannins are extracted from the skins, seeds, and stems of grapes, and they are only exposed to red wine fermentation (for the most part), the best way to completely avoid tannins in wine is to drink more. rosé and white wine.
