Fruits and vegetables in season by month: September

Among the foods in season in September are grapes, a precious, tasty and healthy fruit. Here’s a list of seasonal fruits and vegetables to eat and buy this month.

Grape not only is a healthy fruit, it is also really tasty and juicy. This is thanks to its content of sugars, which can top 150g/kg but shouldn’t cause concern: glucose and levulose, as a matter of fact, are two directly digestable simple sugars that can be consumed in small amounts even by people with diabetes.

Grapes are rich in vitamin A and B1. They also contain vitamin PP and C, as well as mineral salts including manganese, calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron, sodium. This mix of vitamins stimulates the liver function of detoxifying and remineralising the body, and preventing anemia. Thanks to the phosphoric acid and silicon dioxide they contain, grapes are energising for muscles and the nervous system and they are highly recommended to pregnant women and children. Their beneficial properties are even more if you eat the whole grape, seeds included: actually, these seeds contain the grapeseed oil, which is a natural remedy for high cholesterol levels.

Grape therapy, also known as ampelotherapy, has a long tradition and it was used by Romans and Greeks as a tonic and detox treatment. ( The grape cure consists of consuming nothing but grapes for two or three days in order to purify the liver and skin and detoxify the body and tone it.
