Do not worry if you run out of the healthiest oil in the kitchen because here is a list of some of the best grapeseed oil substitutes.

Grapeseed Oil Substitutes

The best grapeseed oil substitutes are olive oil, canola oil, coconut oil, corn oil, sesame oil, safflower oil, and sunflower oil, which have a similar high smoking point.

Olive Oil

This oil can also be substituted for grapeseed oil when making mayonnaise due to its emulsifying properties. The ‘lite’ variety of olive oil is as flavorless as the grapeseed oil.

Canola Oil

This oil is a good alternative for grapeseed oil when baking. Canola oil is cheaper and its fat composition is similar to grapeseed oil. However, beware of its side effects on brain health.

Coconut Oil

Substitute grapeseed oil with refined coconut oil, if you want an odorless and flavorless alternative. For deep frying, remember, it is the unrefined variety that has a high smoke point.

Corn Oil

Corn oil is a less expensive and healthy substitute for grapeseed oil. It can be used for cooking and frying both.

Sesame Oil

Sesame oil is a good alternative to grapeseed oil when making Chinese or Malay cuisine. However, use it sparingly as it has a pungent taste and aroma.
