Are they safe to eat? what about canteloupe seeds as well?

Hmmm, interesting question. I hope someone has an answer! That would be good to know.

I have read (trying to remember the articles) that grape seeds are very beneficial. I know the oil is. And I know people who use the melon seeds as a tea (steep them and then sip the tea).

I've had heard of Grape seed extract and I just read an article that the seeds are beneficial. Good thing, because I am presently eating them : )
I wonder if you can make milk out of cantaloupe seeds? I don't know why I thought of this, maybe some sort of intuition.

I read David Wolfe's Sunfood book and he says you should eat grapes with seeds and watermellon with seeds. He suggest that you don't even buy the seedless variety. My area grocery stores do not even sell these fruits with seeds.

ok. this might be silly question. but the seeds are so small, do we just swallow them? :o I just really don't know.

I always eat the grape seed and I am still here. I juice Canteloupe along with the skin and seed and I am still here.

My opinion is that they are safe. Especially in small quantities. As to tasty? That is another question! Personally, I discard them.

Ok. I would most definately say that Grape seeds are good to eat because they contain pycenogol which is very beneficial. Infact I think I am going start eating more grapes after researching their benefits. It's too bad they cost $11 a bag for the organic, but apparently grapes are one of the most pesticide laden fruits. So... it's worth it, even if it is just to eat a different fruit from the same ones I always eat.
I would like to find out about the Canteloupe. There wasn't much info on the seeds out there. I would think they were ok since they are in the same family as squash, but I usually bake my pumpkin seeds. Anyone tried to make milk out of them?
