hi again guys,
is grapeseed oil known by any other name, i can't seem to find it in the food lists. If O's can't have it what do you think is a suitable sub for it. Thanks in advance. Tracy

Grapeseed or grape oil, no other name to my knowledge.

You can replace it with walnut oil, almond oil, coconut oil. but they are slightly thicker.

You can order it from internet.

And here i am thinking butter, lol. I would never have thought of almond or walnut oil. Coconut wouldn't be ok for the other family members as they are not nonies. Thank you so much for your reply and help. will duck out in the morning and buy some, hfs has them, i use almond oil for my skin so i know they have it. Thanks again Alek.

Hey Tenacious - you should be able to find grapeseed oil in Woolworths and Coles, maybe IGA, as well as HFS. I buy Azalea brand in 1 litre bottles (imported from Italy). It is with the normal cooking oils. Has a yellowy green label. Grapeseed oil is brilliant for cooking - has a higher flash point and is more stable when heated, than most other compliant oils (except for ghee).And is very mild in taste so great in muffins etc.

I was extremely surprised to find Grapeseed Oil Spray (like Pam) at a local grocery store.  More and more grocery stores here are starting to at least add "natural" sections and are trying to up the organic items.  

Speaking of oils......what's the best to deep fry in?  I have been using the dark olive oil not emoo for the rare occasion I deep fry okra or something.  I was wondering if there was a list of all the different oils and what their best usage is for???

Thanks,
Carolinagirl

I would also use ghee for deep frying...  EVOO will degrade very quickly at the deep fry temperatures...

Interesting Lola, I use coconut oil for sunblock.
Will try rice bran for a change, thanks.


hey Alek.......coconut oil......hmmmmm, that sounds good. I was thinking of using the grapeseed oil when I am out in the sun. does coconut oil smell like coconut? I miss that yummy smell of sunlotion. So..........maybe a combo. I love what grapeseed does for my face, couldn't hurt the rest of me. And if r/b gives a little blocking action, woooo-hooooo........... now if c/o smells like coconut, I'm all set!!!

Can't believe you guys are actually thinking of using coconut oil in the sun!  This was very popular when I was a teen and many of my friends & myself are now all troubled with skin cancers

coconut will fry your skin.

I use it all the time, but am not much in the sun, what I mean I don't sunbath, only swim, and never in the sun between 10am and 3pm.

Coconut oil is wonderful softener for my skin, before that I used grapeseed oil and it didn't do anything for me.

Italybound, there is very vague smell of coconut.

After searching Greek market, there is no rice bran oil here yet.

So is grapeseed oil neutral for Blood Type B?  I see it in the store and have been curious because it is not listed in the books.  Does anyone know this for sure?

Coconut oil doesnt damage your skin. It's the intensity & duration of exposure to sun that does it. Morning, noon and evening sun also has varying effects on the human skin. And your personal melanin levels.

As for frying, well I dont suggest ghee. It loses most of it's medicinal/healing properties. At the most use it for sauteing but definitely not for deep frying. And ghee used for frying doesnt keep well.

Concensus from the last thread for oils suitable for deep frying was Rice Bran oil.
