Ok i have heard Built mention that you should fry in butter. But i cant find any threads on this from a search. Can someone send me in the right direction or Explain what is best to fry in healthy wise? Putting taste less of a priority. How is grape seed oil for frying i heard some health expert guy say its best. I know frying is one of the least healthy ways to cook food but i would still like to know.

Grape seed, or Rapeseed?

cuz Rapeseed oil is commonly known as Canola oil.

I did find info on grape seed oil though, which I didn't even know existed.
there's a wiki entry on it, though I can't say how accurate it is:

it sounds like a healthy oil though.

Basically butter is one of the most stable sources of fat and can handle the heat of frying. Built can probably explain better than I can :)

Grapeseed is a nice source of omega-6 and omega-9 EFAs but frankly most of us get enough (too many) of those in our diets as it is.

Cook with saturated fats not mono or poly-unsaturated oils.

Butter and coccounut oil are heat stable above 400.

Grapeseed has one of the lowest smoking points making it really bad for cooking.
