Fernanda Branco SHINAGAWA1, Fernanda Carvalho de SANTANA1, Lucillia Rabelo Oliveira TORRES1, Jorge MANCINI-FILHO1* Abstract Grape seed oil (GSO) is not often consumed in Brazil and little is known of its nutritional value.
Around the world there are already studies that point to the high levels of minority bioactive compounds and their relation to health benefits.

Thus, this study aimed to present a review of GSO and show the potential health effects of its major components, not only linoleic acid, but also γ-tocotrienol and β-sitosterol, and finally, their influence on lipid-modulating, anti and pro oxidative parameters. Keywords: grape seed oil; linoleic acid; tocotrienols; oxidative stress; inflammation. Practical Application: It is widely known that the consumption of vegetable oils rather than solid fats is vital to maintaining health.
