    Grape Seed Oil?

    I was at Whole Foods today (a supermarket) and bought "Grape Seed Oil" in a spray bottle for cooking. I figured I will use this to make eggs everyday.

    Is this superior to using PAM which uses "Canola Oil"?

    Thanks in advance

    When I fry eggs I use lots of Olive Oil for all that monosaturated fats, which of course increases testerone and is a healthy fat. Not to sure about "Grape seep oil", but I do know that Canola oil is great for frying.

    My opinion, just stick with olive oil, lots of it.
    Good Day

    Frying with any oil at high heat is not a good practice. Oraganic butter is alot safer..

    I'm talking about making scambled eggs on medium heat. And also what do you mean safer?

    I was saying is grape seed oil vs. canola better? In terms of nutrition facts.

    I don't wanna put words in his mouth but I think he means that frying food is bad in general because of how high the heat gets and it destorys vitamamins and minerals. Medium heat is fine, use olive oil.
    Good Day

    I don't touch canola oil. No way! i don't feel it is that great for you. Yes, grape seed oil is better for you than canola oil.

    Many health food stores have a cooking spray made with only olive oil. That is what I get now instead of PAM.

    I agree but if there are better choices out there then why not go for that?
