Utilizing the Whole Seed-A Guide for Chemical-Free, Cold Pressed Grape Seed Oil Extraction
Royal Grapeseed offers gently dried, fresh, antioxidant rich whole Concord Grape Seeds for your companies in house oil extractions. Our Concord Grapeseeds yield about 10% oil when extracted via a cold-press or screw-press extraction method. Extracting grapeseed oil in such a way from our unfermented, pesticide and mold free, whole Concord Grapeseeds results in a precious deep green, pure, extra virgin grapeseed oil with a fruity flavor and aroma.
Because no chemicals are used in our drying process, doing a cold pressed or expeller pressed extraction means absolutely no chemicals are ever introduced into the oil. There is no need to refine, bleach, or deodorize the oil when the oil itself is this pure. This is unheard of in the grapeseed oil industry. Typically spoiled, fermented grape pomace, left over from the winemaking industry, is extracted using a chemical called “hexane”. Because of the unfresh nature of the beginning pomace, and the chemical extraction process, the resulting oil must be treated with further chemicals to mask it’s unpleasant taste and aroma. After all of this chemical processing, this “grapeseed” oil is no different from canola oil, or any other generic, chemically laden oil.
Extracting grapeseed oil with a screw press or expeller press is no easy task, but your extra effort will be rewarded with a rare, high coveted oil with all of it’s natural health benefits in tact. Unrefined, extra virgin, cold pressed grapeseed oil is good source of Omega 6 fatty acids, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, and tocopherols including alpha tocopherol and gamma tocopherol. Unrefined grapeseed oil also contains polyphenols, which benefit the heart, brain, skin, and overall immune system. Chemically refining and processing grapeseed oil effectively removes not only the flavor and aroma, but all of the above mentioned health benefits.
After the oil extraction process, you’re left with an equally nutritious and beneficial seed cake. This grape seed cake can be used in numerous ways and is highly sought after in the health food, gluten free, and nutraceutical industries. This seedcake can be ground to you or your clients specifications, and used as a gluten free flour additive, smoothie or protein shake mix-in, animal feed additive, capsule additive, grape seed extract alternative, or it can be used for your own in house, proprietary grape seed extractions. Royal Grapeseed’s Concord Grape Seed Cake is low in calories, and high in fiber, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, and polyphenols.
