Have you been missing out on this healthy fat? One try and this oil will quickly become a pantry staple.

What is Grapeseed Oil?

Made from the same grapes used for wine making, grapeseed oil is extracted from the tiny inner seeds. Commonly imported from countries like France and Switzerland, this light and fresh oil is becoming more widely available in the United States.

Its clean and mild flavor makes it a better choice in dishes where you don't want the flavor of the oil to compete with the other ingredients.

Grapeseed also has an extremely high smoke point, making it ideal for high cooking temps in cooking techniques like stir frying, sautéing, baking and frying,

Healthy Attributes

Just like all other plant-based oils, grapeseed contains 120 calories and 14 grams of fat per tablespoon. The majority of the fat comes from the uber heart-healthy polyunsaturated variety. It's also a plentiful source of the antioxidant vitamin E – each tablespoon has 25-percent of the daily recommendation. Grapeseed oil also contains a compound called OPCs (oligomeric proanthocyanidins), which only adds to its antioxidant and cell-protecting power.
