Substantiation of the expedience of using of natural antioxidants for inhibiting of oxidative and hydrolytic rancidity in confectionary industry is an urgent direction. The offered way of solving the problem is to use a fat-less grape seed powder, a product, obtained as wastes of vine-making as a source of antioxidants. For this aim, there were realized experimental studies of water-alcohol extracts (ethanol, isopropanol) by the method of gas chromatography with mass-spectroscopic detection (CG-MS) of the chemical composition of grape seed powders under industrial conditions. The obtained data allowed to establish that the studied extracts contain an essential amount of phenol compounds of the different origin: aromatic acids – gallic and egallic acids; resveratrol; flavonoids – quercetin and its derivatives, catechine, epicatechine, campferol and others alongside with esters of fatty acids. These components are strong antioxidants, and their introduction to a grape seed powder must favor inhibition of the oxidizing process of fats in fat-containing confectionary products, so increasing shelf-life of products.
