Ancient English apple could boost heart health of millions

A rare ancient breed of English apple is the source of a 'secret' food ingredient that could boost the heart health of millions.
It has been extracted from Evesse apples because they are a rich source of polyphenols that help increase blood flow and relax the arteries.
Anyone ever hear of these in North America, or even across the pond?

After reading on other sites I'm not sure that Evesse™ is a variety or a trademarked product of a particular company which may simply be made from certain apples.

"Commenting on the business partnership with Danisco, Richard Wood, Chief Executive for Coressence Limited, notes: ‘Coressence has been engaged for the last five years in developing the production of high yielding polyphenol extraction from specially selected and protected apple varieties. The long term collaborative agreement with Danisco for EvesseTM in the food ingredients market is a key part of our programme."
