If you're anything like us, you've been waiting for what feels like an eternity for there to FINALLY be a new type of flour that wont cause us to pack on some extra pounds!
We'll we've got some VERY exciting news for you!
In their recent annual report, the USDA revealed around 180 new inventions over the past year, one of which is a form of flour that might actually prevent weight gain!!
The miracle white powder is actually made from chardonnay grape seeds, which are thrown out during the wine-making process!
Researchers ran test on hamsters and found that the flour prevented weight gain and increases in cholesterol, and those results could be promising when applied to humans! The reports says:
"In subsequent research, the scientists measured changes in the metabolic pathways of cholesterol and fat metabolism that supported the weight-loss observations. The sale of grape seeds for milling into flour has the potential to offer an additional revenue stream for wine producers."
Translation: EVERYBODY WINS!!
Not only is their obvious potential in health benefits, but this could also possibly make more money for wine-makers and farmers who were just throwing out those grape seeds in the first place!
