15. Grapes: Reduce body fat
Muscadine grapes are used to make wine—their seeds and skin usually thrown away as waste during the process—but scientists have found that oil extracted from these grape seeds can reduce fat, according to research from the University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences. The oil is an unsaturated form of vitamin E called tocotrienol that, when consumed, can curtail weight gain because it’s a good source of mono- and polyunsaturated fatty acids. The researchers are hoping to help growers produce large quantities of the oil for consumers to use, most likely as salad dressing.
