The Health Junction had a question from reader Narges about Grape Seed Oil (GSO)- here is everything you need to know in 100 words!
GSO comes from the seeds of grapes and has a high smoking point so you can cook at high temperatures without altering the chemical bonds (by contrast vegetable, flaxeed, canola, and safflower have a low smoking point so it’s better not to cook with these).
It doesn’t hold a strong flavour so your meal won’t taste like grapes.
GSO contains a compound called oligomeric proanthocyanidins which discourages oxidation of LDL cholesterol – the bad type that causes atherosclerosis.
