Circular-based alternative protein extraction from grape seeds

About the project

The project will valorise grapevine seeds, an abundant wine industry by-product, into a high-value nutritional ingredient to be used as an additive in the healthy food and non-alcoholic beverages industry.

PROSEED is an EIT Food project that has received funding from the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT), a body of the European Union, under Horizon Europe, the EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation.


The production of this new alternative protein addresses the primary issue of acute protein production deficit in the European Union and enables the application of a circular economy model within the wine value chain.
