Sunflower OIL





This oil is made by pressing sunflower seeds.  Sunflower oil is a great source of both mono and polyunsaturated fats, which reduce the risk of heart disease and lowers blood pressure.

Sunflower oil’s antioxidant properties strengthen the cell membranes, making it harder for bacteria and viruses to enter the body. In addition, this increases our ability to fight off infections.

Flavor Profile

It has a mild, light nutty, buttery taste.

Best Uses

It’s usually used for roasting, sautéing, stir-frying and deep-frying due to its high smoke point.  Can be used in baking as a replacement for butter. As a raw product, it can be used for dressings, dips, ice cream, salsa and as a finishing oil.
