I installed honed granite countertops in my kitchen about 7 months ago. What do you recommend for a low/zero-VOC sealer?

I recommend AFM Safecoat's MexeSeal for unpolished granite.

Safecoat MexeSeal is a very low-VOC, low-odor, water-based, medium-gloss clear sealer for use on interior surfaces where food, oil and water resistance is desired.

Do make sure your granite is truly HONED, as this product will not work on polished surfaces.
