Grape Seed Oil's best attribute is its health-promoting properties. This oil offers a high level of Vitamin E, a potent anti-oxidant, one of the lowest levels of saturated fat and the highest levels of unsaturated fat.
Grape Seed Oil is high in linoleic acid, an essential fatty acid that the body needs but cannot produce. It has a high smoking point (this is the point at which heated oil becomes harmful to consume) of 242° C and is therefore ideal for cooking, deep-frying, grilling, stir-fry, braaing, baking or over salads.
This Oil has good emulsifying properties and is ideal for whipping up homemade mayonnaise, works well in salad dressings and is a delightful addition to marinades.
