Plus, Welch's® grape quality is monitored every step of
the way. We use an independent organization to take grape

What is the white residue sometimes found on grapes?
The residue is the waxy coating produced naturally by the
grapes, called bloom. Bloom is a delicate white substance
common on many soft fruits, such as grapes. The bloom
protects the fruits from moisture loss and decay. Simply
rinse to remove.
