Flavanols: Pursuing Advances in Cardiovascular Health

Flavanols are a group of compounds found in cocoa beans, tea leaves and red wine grapes. There is a growing body of evidence suggesting that a diet rich in flavanols can have a positive impact on cardiovascular health.

Further investigation is required in order to understand how the body absorbs and metabolises flavanols, what impact they have on cardiovascular function and the best diet to benefit from flavanol-containing foods.

FLAVIOLA is a pan-European research project addressing precisely these issues. Through cutting-edge research, FLAVIOLA aims to drive the development of innovative and natural food products that will have a far-reaching impact on the general public, consumers, scientists and physicians as well as European institutions and the food industry.
