How does grapeseed oil compare to olive oil for health and cooking?

 

Both grapeseed and olive oil are very healthy choices. Grapeseed oil has a higher smokepoint and no discernable flavor–two features that make it versatile for cooking. However, grapeseed oil is not as widely available, and is often more costly than olive oil.
