Grape Seed Oil

Grapeseed Oil - Cocinar con canola

Fresh, juicy grapes might not seem to have much connection to sautéing vegetables for dinner. Yet the fruit’s little seeds contain oil that’s gaining popularity for both food companies and home cooks alike.

Grapeseed oil is a light-flavored oil, high in the heart-healthy mono and polyunsaturated fats and low in saturated fats. . Grape seed oil is an excellent source of vitamin E which helps to protect our cells from damage from free radicals. . Grape seed oil is also being studied for its role in reducing inflammation in our body and the possible positive impact on heart health due to it being a rich source of linoleic acid, an omega-6 fatty acid.

Chef Tips

Grapeseed oil is neutral tasting and can be used interchangeably with canola oil for sautéing foods. Its high smoke point means it won’t burn easily when a recipe calls for cooking at high temperatures, making it perfect for pan-frying and stir-fry recipes.

Grape seed oil can be used as a healthy alternative wherever a recipe calls for a mild-flavored oil. It’s perfect for dishes where spices are the number-one flavoring. Use grapeseed oil to prepare our delicious, Spiced Beet & Tomato Soup or our Stir-Fried Kale with Ginger.
