  10. 10. Molds</li></ul>Each pollen grain has a micro-hole, that when ruptured, allows for the separation of the allergenic outer crust and the essential internal nutrients. This leaves the nourishing substances found in the internal grain readily available to the body for absorption. <br />Graminex® uses a special manufacturing process to rupture the micro-hole through a non-solvent extraction process. The ruptured pollen grains are then centrifuged to separate the nutritional components from the allergens.<br />The flower pollen nutrients are concentrated to exact nutritional specifications by Graminex®. The remaining components are recycled and used for various industrial applications.<br />
