Commonly Asked Questions

I don’t have grapeseed oil. Which oil can I use instead?

You can use other vegetable oils, although don’t go for canola if you’re avoiding highly processed oils.

Can I cook popcorn in olive oil?

You can mix in or completely substitute with olive oil, and even extra-virgin olive oil, if you prefer. But it is important to note that both olive oil burns faster, so remember to cook it only over medium heat, and keep an eye on it.
