I am continually amazed at the response we get when we tell people that Oil My Goodness is made with grapeseed oil.  An elderly lady in the checkout line at the market said, “Oh yes!  My doctor recommended switching to grapeseed oil to lower my cholesterol.”  A preschool teacher said, “As part of my new diet, My doctor told me to switch to grapeseed oil to help control my blood pressure.”   Recently, at a street fair sale, a young girl said to me, “Oh yeah, my Dad has cancer, so he uses grapeseed oil for everything.”

The word is out there and spreading all the time: grapeseed oil is the healthy alternative cooking oil.  I have set up Google Alerts for grapeseed oil and get daily updates of blogs, articles, recipes and other related postings and in 4 months, not one of them has mentioned even a single drawback to this amazing food!

I thought I’d share with you one of the articles that was recently posted.  In it, the author compares olive oil to grapeseed oil.  This is not from a sales page, so he is not trying to push one or the other.  In the end (spoiler alert!) he finds that grapeseed oil is a far more flexible, useful and healthy oil overall.  The primary advantage that olive oil maintains is that lovely olive-y flavor required by some dishes.  Otherwise, they are similar in basic nutritional qualities such as fat and cholesterol, grapeseed is higher in antioxidants, more mild in flavor, has a higher flash point and, since it uses what would otherwise be a byproduct of wine and grape juice, is the green option.

Enjoy the review!
