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.

Usage: The stove top is where Grapeseed oil shines. With a very high smoke point, Grapeseed oil makes burnt oil a thing of the past. In stir-fries and sautés grapeseed oil is at its best; it does not overwhelm the other ingredients and lets the fresh flavors shine. When grilling or frying, it is the must-have in your pantry. Grapeseed Oil is also great on skin and hair to moisturize, seal and alleviate discomfort from skin or scalp ailments.

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.

Wine production is a cherished tradition in France, Italy, Spain, California, Chile and now all over the world. There are events commemorating the annual harvest and every step in the winemaking process. Lost in all the commotion, however, is a little secret: Once all the wine has been produced, the winemakers gather all the seeds, dry them and bring them to their local oil mill. There, a somewhat arduous process begins. Since the seeds are so tiny and abrasive, powerful machines are required to crush them. The process is very time-consuming since the seeds contain less than 10% oil. Imagine the vast quantity of seeds needed to produce one drum of oil! All La Tourangelle oils are 100% all-natural, expeller-pressed and free of any chemicals.

Easy salad dressing: 2-3 tbsp. grapeseed oil, 1 tbsp. fresh lemon juice,1 clove garlic, minced, salt&pepper. Whisk grapeseed oil and lemon juice together. Mince or finely chop one garlic clove and mix into the dressing. Add salt and pepper to the bowl and stir or shake up in a glass jar.

Curry vinaigrette: 1 clove garlic minced, 2 tbsp sour cream, 2 tbsp curry powder, 1.5 tbsp fresh lemon juice, 5 tbsp La Tourangelle Grapeseed Oil, salt&pepper. Crush garlic and salt in a mortar. Combine with the sour cream and curry. Stir in the lemon juice. Whisk in the Grapeseed oil.
