La Tourangelle - Grapeseed Oil - 16.9 fl oz (1 pt 0.9 fl oz) 500 ml

La Tourangelle Grapeseed Oil is perfect for everyday cooking and frying.  Its light, nutty taste makes for a delicious salad dressing, and its high smoke point ensures easy frying and sautéing.  Grapes have seduced humans for centuries with their fabled red and white nectars. But they have another aspect too. When pressed, tiny grapeseeds yield green-colored oil with remarkable properties. Grapeseed oil has a light flavor and contains a high level of polyunsaturated fat. La Tourangelle Grapeseed Oil can also be heated up to 485°F, making it the ideal healthy cooking partner.

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 is also used in skin products, aromatherapy and cosmetics.

Production Process
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 wine making process. Lost in all the commotion, however, is a little secret: Once they have finished making their wine, 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!

Usage
The kitchen is where grapeseed oil comes into its prime. With a smoke point of 420°F, the oil is easy to use in cooking and will make burnt oil a thing of the past. The nutty flavor works well in vinaigrettes with any type of vinegar, never overwhelming the other ingredients. Grapeseed oil is also commonly blended with more intensely flavored oils. Another fact to keep in mind is that grapeseed oil is an excellent substitute for butter or canola oil.

Why are La Tourangelle oils so healthy?

La Tourangelle oils are packed with Omega 3, 6 and 9 the three keys to a healthy diet natural antioxidants and essential vitamins.

It has been proven that a balanced intake of omega 3 and 6 along with high level of omega 9 reduces significantly the risk of dying from a cardio-vascular related disease.

What are omega's?

Mono and poly-unsaturated fats have health benefits. The best mono-unsaturated fat is the Oleic acid or Omega 9 found in high level in olive oil, hazelnut oil, almond oil or sesame oil. The best poly-unsaturated fats are Linolenic and linoleic fatty acids or omega 3 and 6. Omega 3 and 6 are found in walnut oil and grapeseed oil. It has been proven that a balanced intake of omega 3 and 6, along with high level of omega 9 significantly reduce the risk of a cardiovascular related disease.
 
Which oil is the best? Is my olive oil enough?

Each oil has specific benefits. Olive oil is an excellent source of omega 9 but brings no omega 3. Walnut oil is a good source of omega 3, 6 and 9. The best way to ensure a healthy lifestyle is to rotate oils to get all needed omega's.

Rotating oils is the key to ensuring the proper intake of each omega.

Here is the amount of each found in La Tourangelle oils and olive oil:

What is the difference between Roasted Nut Oils and Refined Nut Oils?

La Tourangelle Roasted Nut Oils are handcrafted in their Artisan oil mill and should not be confused with refined nut oils.

How La Tourangelle roasted nut oils are produced:
La Tourangelle roasted nut oils are made from the best quality nuts available. For instance most of the walnuts they use come from the orchard located next to the oil mill. They buy the crop and sundry the walnuts in the traditional way. Each batch of nut oil is unique and handcrafted following a 150 year tradition. First the nuts are hand roasted in cast iron kettles before being expeller-pressed. The oil is then lightly filtered and bottled. Their roasted nut oils are very flavorful with rich colors and more natural antioxidants than refined nut oils because many are removed during the refining process.

The best way to compare is of course to taste the difference, which is often likened to the relationship between refined olive oil and extra virgin olive oil.

How refined nut oils are produced:
Refined nut oils including refined walnut oil and refined almond oil are made from what is called nut oil stock. Nut oil stocks are actually sub-standard nuts sold at discounted price by California nuts growers to oil manufacturers. The nuts are then expeller-pressed in a screw press and thereafter refined to clean impurities. The result is 100% pure nut oil but with no flavor, no color and no smell. It is suitable for use in the kitchen or for cosmetic.

About La Tourangelle
The production of gourmet oils is a time-honored tradition in France. Originally, each village had a mill which roasted and extracted the oil from nuts gathered by local farmers. These delicious oils were used in hearty rustic fare and were also found in Paris' finest restaurants.

La Tourangelle is one of just a handful of these remaining mills that keep this tradition alive. Through a partnership between one of the oldest and most respected French artisanal oil mills, Huilerie Croix Verte SAS from Saumur, France, and California Oils Corporation, La Tourangelle has succeeded in recreating the spirit of a traditional French oil mill in Woodland, California.

Hand-crafting a wide range of delicious artisan oils in both California and France, La Tourangelle distributes an exclusive line of premium quality oils in many countries around the world.

By Phil (North Manchester , IN )

I absolutely love this product! I feel so much better about putting this oil in our recipes than any other. It is light in taste and can handle even the high heat of popcorn. I use this in bread making, including burger buns and breadsticks to give my spelt/whole wheat bread a light taste. It passes the "storebought bread" taste test for my family. I buy this in quantity to avoid runnig out!

I RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT!
