Grape seed oil is a vegetable oil derived from the seeds of grapes.
Grapeseed oil contains high levels of vitamin E, which has high antioxidant properties, and has shown to contribute to the reduction of damaged cells from free radicals in the body. This protection helps prevent heart disease and some cancers.
High in polyunsaturated fats and vitamin E, grapeseed oil has a high smoke point, which makes it a good substitute for olive or vegetable oils when stir-frying and sauteing. And because it's virtually flavorless, it lets top-notch ingredients stand out (like the balsamic vinegar you lugged back from Italy).
