Cold-Pressed, Unrefined Sunflower Seed Oil
Sunflower oil contains vitamins E and A as well as lecithin. The oil has a high content of linoleic acid. Virgin sunflower oil is an easily digestible culinary oil. This oil has a mild, pleasant taste and a high content of linoleic acid.
Furthermore, Organic Sunflower oil is also popular in Naturopathic medicine, especially in oil pulling.
Cold-Pressed Sunflower Oil
We press our oils with passion and precision. Using a technique that requires extra low pressure resulting in truly raw and pure oils. High quality that you can taste!
Unlike other oils, unrefined sunflower oil is made from seeds that are dried and then extra cold-pressed. A good quality Sunflower Oil oil is clear in color and has a light sunflower taste. Taking short cuts in the production process causes the taste of the oil to vary tremendously.
Sunflower Oil has a very faint scent and is also a very popular carrier oil for essential oils.
Similarly to almond oil, Sunflower Oil makes a fabulous skin oil.
Cold pressed, raw, certified organic sunflower seed oil.
