Tannin is what gives wine its flavor but not everyone likes how strong it is. It can be bitter or sour. Some call it earthy. If you don’t love that you’ll want to look for a lower tannin wine because the flavor will be milder. You can look at the label and it should give you an insight on the tannin level but you can also just do research online.
- Tannins are polyphenols possessing properties that are useful to human bodies, including antimicrobial and antioxidant virtues.
- However tannin sensitivity tests on lab animals have shown that ingested tannins effected the animals energy metabolization, growth rate and protein digestibility.
- If you have digestion issues and are sensitive to tea, chocolate, red wine, cinnamon and coffee, you might have tannin sensitivity.
“About 25% of the population has a heightened sensitivity to bitterness and this group is referred to as “supertasters.””
