Description: Our Organic Sunflower Oil is derived by the expeller pressing of sun-ripened organic sunflower seeds (Helianthus annuus), and is refined, bleached, deodorized, and winterized. It has a delicious, slightly nutty flavor. Sunflower Oil contains essential fatty acids, primarily oleic. The oleic acid content of this oil is typically found at levels between 75% and 90%, and makes the oil more stable and resistant to oxidation (rancidity).
- High Oleic Sunflower Oil can be a healthful alternative to saturated oils or hydrogenated oils in culinary dishes.
- It contains vitamin E, and is a good carrier oil due to its moisturizing qualities
Ingredients: Organic High Oleic Sunflower Oil (Helianthus annuus), Refined.
Packaging: To preserve and maintain their beneficial properties for years, our 4 fl oz and 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.
