Health Benefits of Cooking with Grapeseed Oil

Did you know that Grapeseed Oil is one of the healthiest oils to cook with?
Even more than Extra Virgin Olive Oil (an extremely healthful oil, but not when exposed to high heat).
Once you have cooked with grapeseed oil, you will never go back to the others. I recommend replacing cooking oils with grapeseed oil for a healthy kitchen pantry. Wildtree has many different naturally infused grapeseed oils. Roasted Garlic and Butter are my favorites.

Here's why you should switch....

Wildtree’s Grapeseed Oil is EXPELLER PRESSED - NOT solvent extracted like the vast majority of grapeseed oils in the marketplace.

GRAPESEED OIL is made from grape seeds after wine production. It is therefore environmentally sound and requires no new farmland or water to produce. Versatile, delicious and good for you, grapeseed oil allows the pure flavor of fresh food to come through. Its delicate flavor and body make it perfect for sautéing, baking or frying. Try it in salad dressings, on pasta or hard breads, or use as a marinade or baste for the grill.

Miracle Frying Oil
Grapeseed Oil is ideal for frying at high temperatures. It may be heated up to 419 degrees (F) without burning, - one of the highest flash points. Deep fry your favorite foods in Wildtree's Grapeseed Oil for a wonderful light crispy taste and cholesterol free frying.

Fantastic dairy-free butter substitute!
I substitute Butter GSO when a recipe calls for melted butter. I cut the amount in 1/2 or a 1/3 and feel good that I am not adding cholesterol to whatever it is I am baking. I've also used Butter GSO when making grilled cheese, scrambled eggs, popcorn or sautéing vegetables. And our Butter GSO is dairy-free!
