  • Sweet Oils

    So I have a really crazy idea in my head, but I need some help.
    Okay, so, olive oil & avocado oil are savory, and macadamia oil is sweet. What other oils are sweet, but still Primal?
    Oh, and I'm talking oils fluid at room temperature, so EVCO is out.
    Also wanted to add that the oil will NOT be cooked when I use it.

      Ghee is solid at room temperature, and it has a funky, nutty taste. I want liquid at room temp

        I picked up some Grape Seed oil at Kroger the other day. Very mild flavor. Too expensive to use much at a time.

          Solidity depends on what temperature you "room" is...my EVCO is always liquid :P As for actual helpfulness, I imagine most nut oils will be sweeter: almond, etc.

            My EVCO is solid right now due to cooler temperatures, but it was liquid all summer. I think macadamia is going to be oil of choice though for my crazy idea. It's a recipe, but has absolutely no use, LOL.

                  Grapeseed oil is so, so, so horrendously bad for your health.

                  Grapeseed Oil (1 Tbsp)

                  Total Fat...13.5g
                  Saturated Fat...1.3g
                  Monounsaturated Fat...2.2g
                  Polyunsaturated Fat...9.4g
                  omega 3...13.5mg
                  omega 6...9,395mg

                  GAHH!!! Outrageously high omega 6, oxidized PUFA NIGHTMARE! Seriously, that is one of the worst fatty acid profiles I've ever seen. That is at least twice as bad as canola and soybean oil.

                  Nutrition Facts and Analysis for Oil, vegetable, grapeseed

                  I'd use grapeseed oil for what it was designed for - oiling furniture and door hinges.

                  Have you looked into walnut oil? I've never had it, but apparently it's delicious. I DEFINITELY wouldn't cook with it, but at least it has some omega 3 to balance out the high omega 6. A little bit cold on salads shouldn't hurt on occasion.

                  Don't put your trust in anyone on this forum, including me. You are the key to your own success.

                    No, but I have access to several nut based oils through a couple of different stores. Mac is my #1 choice right now, but I also saw walnut, hazelnut (yum!), almond, and truffle oil (not a nut, but I like the idea)

                    the oil will be used in mayo, but I want a super sweet mayo, almost like miracle whip (I like the taste of miracle whip, but I think I'd rather pour kitchen cleaner down my gullet!)

                      You might try High Oleic Sunflower oil (it's about 80% oleic acid as opposed to regular sunflower oil which is not very good for you) I'm not sure if it's sweet, but I bought it for mayo since I'm allergic to macadamia (which makes a REALLY rich mayo -- i used it years ago before allergy).

                        Oh yeah -- the high oleic sunflower oils have been produced through natural breeding selection -- not engineered.

                          Sweet crude oil is a type of petroleum. Petroleum is considered "sweet" if it contains less than 0.5% sulfur, compared to a higher level of sulfur in sour crude oil. Sweet crude oil contains small amounts of hydrogen sulfide and carbon dioxide. High quality, low sulfur crude oil is commonly used for processing into gasoline and is in high demand, particularly in the industrialized nations. "Light sweet crude oil" is the most sought-after version of crude oil as it contains a disproportionately large amount of these fractions that are used to process gasoline , kerosene, and high-quality diesel (gas oil). The term "sweet" originated because the low level of sulfur provides the oil with a mildly sweet taste and pleasant smell. Nineteenth century prospectors would taste and smell small quantities of the oil to determine its quality.
