Since we cold press out grapeseed oil using an expeller press, there are zero chemicals that ever come in contact with our grapeseed powder. We clean and dry our grapeseeds using only clean water and low heat, on the very same day that the grapes leave the vineyard and are pressed for juice. Because we use only Concord juice grapes, our seeds are unfermented and contain higher polyphenolic and OPC levels than wine grapes, and no sulfites.
