Cold pressed grape seed oil in cooking

Cold-pressed grape seed oil has a very high smoke point and only begins to smoke at over 190°C. This makes it very good for gentle cooking and frying. Unfortunately, the vitamin E in grape seed oil does not withstand these temperatures. Therefore, our TIP for the vitamin-sparing application in cooking: Grape seed oil should be added as a flavoring agent just before the end of a cooking or frying process. The special taste, which only a grape seed oil has, which was cold-pressed and naturally manufactured, can round cooked courts off so also perfectly.
