Grape seed flour

The stalk is initially removed from full grape pomace and later dried. The pulp and skin are then separated and the grape seeds are obtained.

Pips are the seeds separated in the prior process. The seeds are comprised of a tegument or very woody covering and a lipid-rich albumin.

The product that results from extracting the oil is called degreased grain or Grape Seed Flour (with 1-2% residual oil) and contains approximately 50% raw fibre and a large quantity of minerals like calcium, iron, zinc, etc. and 5% vitamin E.
