Grapes have seduced humans for centuries with their fabled red and white nectars. But they have another tempting aspect as well. When pressed, tiny Grapeseeds yield green-colored oil with remarkable properties. La Tourangelle Expeller-Pressed Grapeseed Oil has a light flavor and contains a high level of polyunsaturated fat. It can also be heated up to 450°F, making it an ideal healthy cooking partner.
Health Benefits: As one of the richest natural sources of linoleic acid, Grapeseed oil can do wonders when it comes to fighting heart disease and bad cholesterol. Linoleic acid is a member of the polyunsaturated fatty acid family. These fatty acids tend to blend with cholesterol in the blood and transform it into something the body knows how to get rid of. Grapeseed oil can also be used in skin products, aromatherapy and cosmetics.
