Is "skins" a typo in the following statement related to grapes?

Asked by flo (12366points) 3 weeks ago

“Grape seeds and skins are good sources of phytochemicals such as gallic acid, catechin, and epicatechin and are suitable raw materials for the production of antioxidative dietary supplements. The differences in levels of the major monomeric flavanols and phenolic acids in seeds and skins from grapes of Vitis vinifera varieties Merlot and Chardonnay and in seeds from grapes of Vitis rotundifolia variety Muscadine were determined, and the antioxidant activities of these components were assessed.”
Edited to add: Why isn’t just “skin”, (singular)

I’m not sure what you mean, but my first reaction is “No. It’s not a typo.” But that’s assuming (?) you expect grape skins to be referred to as peels?

@Zaku I just edited to add the last statement, “skin” vs “skins”.

I meant why isn’t it skin.

More than one grape, the plural is skins. Same rules as the seeds.
