Phenolic compounds, together with ascorbic acid and some other bioactive compounds, have been linked with the health-promoting effects of grapes, mainly due to their antioxidant capacity.

In fact, the use of microwaves instead of hot air not only promotes the antioxidant capacity of raisins, but also the antioxidant capacity of the product.
