Cooking Oil/ Grapeseed Oil Health Benefits
In this section of Seattle Organic Restaurants I’m going to talk about the healthiest oils for cooking and salad dressings. There are three different types of fats; saturated fat, polyunsaturated fat and monounsaturated fat.
Saturated fats are solid at room temperature such as coconut oil, polyunsaturated fats are liquid at room temperature but they oxidize quickly like corn or sunflower oil. Monounsaturated fats are liquid and are found in nuts, canola and olive oil. There are two types of oils; cold press and extracted oil. In extracted oil, the oil is extracted by using chemicals and heating like algal oil. However cold press oil is expelled from nuts or fruits by pressing and centrifuging without heating or chemicals. Olive oil and avocado oil are both cold pressed oils that should not be heated. Cold press oils like olive and avocado have low burning temperatures and if they are heated they can be cancerous. Grapeseed oil has a high burning temperature and full of antioxidants. Grapeseed oil can also be used for skin care and salad dressings.
Grapeseed oil is made by pressing the grape seeds; grapeseed is a high source of vitamin E, protein and minerals. Grapeseed oil can be found in facial products, hair products, skin products, bath oils and many others. Grapeseed oil has also anti-inflammatory and anti-aging properties. Grapeseed oil is a wonderful moisturizer. There are three healthy oils for cooking: organic grapeseed oil, organic grapeseed oil and organic grapeseed oil. A study shows that the level of bad cholesterol in people who consumed grapeseed oil decreased by 7% and the level of good cholesterol in those who consumed grapeseed oil increased by 13% (HDL is good cholesterol and you want the level of good cholesterol to be higher). Grapeseed oil has a high burning temperature like 485 degrees in Fahrenheit.
You can use other oils like sesame oil, olive oil, jojoba oil and walnut oil for salad dressing. Be aware that these oils have a very low smoking point. For example the smoking point for olive oil in 250 degrees in Fahrenheit. You want to find out Organic healthy restaurants that cook their dishes with healthy oils?
