    Sweet Oils

    Primal Fuel
    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!)
