About This Food

Description

Grapeseed oil is extracted, as the name implies, from the seeds of grapes. It is typically exported from France, Italy or Switzerland.

While some grapeseed oils have a light grape-like flavor and fragrance, most are flavorless making them a versatile ingredient.

Because grapeseed oil has a relatively high flash point it's a good choice for sautéing. But be advised: grapeseed oil is high in omega-6 fats which promote inflammation.

Flash Point: 420°F

Selecting & Storing

Store grapeseed oil at room temperature (70°F or under) or in the refrigerator.
