Abstract

Because grape seed is a potential source of edible protein, it is essential to remove the polyphenols to significantly improve protein digestibility. This study describes a procedure whereby grape seed protein concentrate is significantly purified and protein digestibility is improved. The procedure involves soaking whole seeds in an alkaline solution and subsequently extracting the protein with a concentrated salt solution.
