    Abstract: An edible high-protein flour is produced by an improved process. Cottonseed meats are dried, and then comminuted in a wide chamber mill having certain specifications which prevent rupturing the pigment glands of the cottonseed. This improvement is correlated with liquid cyclone separation followed by solids recovery steps, thus comprising an improved process which consistently yields an edible cottonseed protein concentrate.
