I have a bunch of concord grapes in my fridge, they can be time consuming to eat with the seeds. Wondering if I could throw them into the vitamix?

They probably won't kill you, but how do they taste to you? I don't like the taste of crushed grape seeds. When I eat concords, I swallow the seeds but I don't chew them, so I don't get any taste and they are not absorbed by my body. But if you blend them, you will taste the insides.

I spit them out and I'm convinced it's a natural reflex, otherwise how come I occasionally swallow plum stones which are a lot bigger? But eat them if you want. They're not going to do you the slightest bit of harm...

The proanthocyandin componant of grape seeds may increase the chances for bleeding. So perhaps be careful if you have blood thinning medications or bleeding disorders.

When I get grapes with seeds I always eat the the seeds because the most concentrated nutrition in a plant is in its seed.
