Grape Seed Oil 101 in 100 Words

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.
