Product Snapshot: CabernayZyns are a new superfood that combines the unique flavor of the Cabernet wine grape with the power-packed nutrients of wine grape seeds and skins. Prior to the creation of Wine RayZyns, there was not a USDA food category for wine grapes. The Wine RayZyn Company caramelizes the wine grape seed inside the fruit using a special patented drying process, thereby creating the first palatable way for humans to eat wine grape seeds in their whole form as Nature intended, making CabernayZyns a whole food with bio available nutrients.
The Wine RayZyn Company’s CabernayZyns have been selected as a finalist for the prestigious 2017 NEXTY Awards. The NEXTY Awards are presented at Natural Products Expo West, which is the leading food trade show in the natural, organic and healthy products industry. CabernayZyns are one of six finalists in the “Best New Snack” category. The awards are judged on three criteria: innovation, inspiration, and integrity.
According to Chris Cates, M.D., a cardiologist and the founder and CEO of The Wine RayZyn Company, “All of our CabernayZyns are hand harvested in California and are made from antioxidant rich, specially dried premium Cabernet Sauvignon wine grapes. We take careful steps to provide only pure ‘nature’ to our consumers. CabernayZyns are all natural, naturally sweet, and contain no preservatives or artificial flavors. Our entire team is excited to participate in our first Expo West and to be a finalist among other excellent snack foods.”
