Sunflower Oil

Sunflower oil is the non-volatile oil pressed from the seeds of sunflower (Helianthus annuus). Sunflower oil is commonly used in food as a frying oil, and in cosmetic formulations as an emollient. Sunflower seeds provide sunflower oil, which is enriched with essential vitamin E and comparatively low in saturated fat. The two most common sunflower oils are linoleic and high oleic. Linoleic sunflower oil is a common cooking oil that has high levels of the essential fatty acids known as polyunsaturated fats. It has a clean taste and low levels of trans fats. High-oleic sunflower oils are classified as having monounsaturated levels of 80% and above. Now, newer versions of sunflower oil are available as a hybrid, containing linoleic acid. These have the advantage that their monounsaturated fat levels are lower than in other oleic sunflower oils. The hybrid oil also has lower saturated fat levels than linoleic sunflower oil. Sunflower seeds of all kinds, which contain betaine, are also found to exhibit cardiovascular benefits.
