Organic high-oleic sunflower oil, along with high-oleic safflower oil, is considered one of the more stable vegetable oils. Organic sunflower oil can be used in anything from cooking to soap, candles, massage oils, personal care products and more. High-Oleic means that it has a high level of monounsaturated fats, with an oleic percentage of 77% or more. Organic high-oleic sunflower oil is very stable, with a long shelf-life and an ability to withstand high temperatures. Sunflower can be added in a cold or heated process of formulations without damaging the oil.
Organic sunflower oil is light yellow in color, with almost no scent. Our specific organic sunflower oil is RBD, which means it has been refined to provide the cleanest, most stable form of oil, and is produced from seeds that are certified as non-bioengineered.
