Do you eat the seeds of the grapes?

Hmmm. That is something new to me. I have never heard that the seeds of grapes can make your body slender or make you look great just by eating it. I love grapes and that is one of my favorite fruits, but I prefer to eat the seedless type. I also wonder if what you said above is true.

Hi youless. I have this anti aging, detoxifying herbal supplement, well actually it is my husband's he needs to take them because he has a lot of health issues, anyway, I take some, some of the times and guess what? I just took a long look at its labels this morning and read that one if its main ingredients is Grape Seed Extract(Proanthocyanidins)!-- So, now I know! It is true, eating grape seeds is very healthy.

Hello youless. I don't like to eat the grape seeds as it is hard for me to swallow them down into the throat. But my Filipino friend as well as colleague told me that it is a good idea to eat the seeds as it is helpful and good to our health. I tried, but still found it hard. So I give up eating the grape seeds again though it could be good to our body. Thanks for your discussion, dear friend.

Occasionally I‘ll take some while eating grapes but the seed doesn’t taste nice. Once I went for a eyesight checking the optician told me that seeds of the grapes are good for our eyes. So it’s a waste to eat grapes and throwing away the seeds. He showed me a bottle of tablets which was processed from grape seeds. A bottle of 100 tablets costs about $34US.Though it’s good for the health of our eyes by taking it regularly but for me it’s quite expensive. So it’s wise not to throw away the seeds when taking grapes lol.

I don't eat the seeds of grapes. unlike with guava and cucumber which I eat the seeds. grape seeds are so few and can easily be removed unlike with guava and cucumber with lots and lots of seeds. ^__^;; I don't think eating seed grapes is the reason why french girls have nice figures. maybe it helps but not the main reason. and I think Latinas have nicer figures than them. ^__^ and I can't think of myself eating seed grapes even if it means nicer figure. I might choke on them. LOL

i don't know also if that's true. but for me i don't want to eat the seeds of the grapes. i prefer the seedless one. it's very yummy and easy to swallow unlike if there's a seed. i love grapes it's very delicious and very good for our body:)

I prefer to eat the seedless grapes..and whenever i get the grapes with seeds..i feel bored to spit the seeds often, as we eat the grapes, so i would make a fresh juice of it, and filter the seeds..and have a nice drink.. problem solved.. But i wonder that eating seeds of grapes will give a nice look.. My neighbour,have a goat in his house,and it used to eat what ever things that we throw away.. and not avoiding the seeds from the fruits, like grapes.. LOL.. still from the very first day.. it is having a weird look.. and its beauty has not increased..lol:)

No, I do not eat the seeds of grapes either. I always try to buy the seedless grapes, unless the grapes with seeds are really, really, on sale. But, it just seems like such a hassle to get the seeds out and it makes such a mess. I have never heard of anyone eating the seeds of grapes.

really?lol,i've never heard of that,but it's good news for people lazy as me,i eat seeds,not only grapes,but also westmelons,the only reason for me to eat them is that i don't need to have another container to put those seeds,and when i am watching tv,i can keep more concentration.

No, I don't think that's why so many French women have nice figures. You're not supposed to eat the seeds, but some people do. My boyfriend does. I've tried it, but I don't like it and I prefer to eat seedless grapes - I still have a nice figure :) Btw, not all French women have nice figures - but perhaps they don't eat grapes ;) From which year was your book?

I don't eat the seeds of the grapes, I don't like them. But if yo've read that the french girls look nice becuse of the seeds I could force myself to eat them!!! (anyway italian girls don't eat grapes' seeds and are better then french one!)

Hello.youless,honestly i will prefer to eat the seedless grapes so that i do not need to spew the seeds out when i am eating them. If i have really bought the grapes with seeds,definitely i will not eat the seeds because the tastes are bitter, i do not want that taste to affect my appetite of eating the sweet grapes.
