Description: Our Safflower Oil is expeller pressed from the Carthamus tinctorius seeds, then refined, bleached and deodorized. Refined Safflower Oil has a neutral, mild flavor and odor, which makes this oil highly suitable for a wide range of culinary dishes. Safflower Oil is a good source of essential fatty acids, primarily oleic. The oleic acid content of this oil is typically found at levels between 70% and 80%, which makes this oil more stable and resistant to oxidation (rancidity).
- This all-purpose cooking oil is perfect for high heat applications like sautéing, frying, stir-frying, and baking.
Safflower Oil: High Oleic Safflower Oil (Carthamus tinctorius), Refined.
Packaging: To preserve and maintain their beneficial properties for years, our 16 fl oz Vegetable Oils are packaged in light resistant, dark glass amber bottles with a pressure sealed lid and a taper seal poly liner. This elegant bottle is the perfect way to protect light-sensitive liquids, because the dark amber glass helps prevent light degradation. The 1 gallon sizes are packaged in a high-density polyethylene (HDPE) jug, with a tight-fitting plastic lid to help protect contents from moisture and air. Our 5 gallon Vegetable Oils are packaged in a cube container with a spigot and handle.
Storage: Store in a cool, dry place, and avoid direct sunlight and heat. Preserving Oils: If stored improperly for long periods of time, the oils may become rancid. They have a minimum 2 year shelf life when stored properly. When making products with vegetable oils, you can also add 2% Vitamin E Oil to act as a natural preservative.
