Suomessa ehkä vähemmin käytetty, mutta raikas maku ja hyvää kamaa ainakin salaatin kanssa. Terveysvaikutuksetkin näyttäisi olevan kohdallaan.
Löytyykö kellään käyttökokemuksia?
Itse ostin putelin.
Current medical information:
Grape seed oil is reputed to contain plentiful antioxidants, as well as to lower cholesterol levels. In a large survey published in 1993 in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology, Dr. Nash showed in a sample group of 56 men and women using up to 1.5 ounces (43 g) per day, an amount that one can cook with, grape seed oil had the ability to raise HDL levels by 13% and reduce LDL levels by 7% in just three weeks. The total cholesterol/HDL ratio was reduced 15.6% and the total LDL/HDL ratio was reduced by 15.3%, which could be significant for those at risk of heart attack.
Vitamins in grape seed oil:
Vitamin E (0.8 to 1.2 g/kg), Vitamin C and Beta-Carotene.
There is unconfirmed information that grape seed oil also contains Vitamin D.
