Sourced directly from pure sunflower seeds, sunflower oil is refined to ensure the highest quality oils are extracted. This process makes the oil more stable and therefore suitable for high-temperature cooking. Much like many of the other Coroli oils, sunflower oil has a smoke point of approximately 225 degrees; making it an exceptional choice for cooking. According to the National Sunflower Association, sunflower oil is also high in polyunsaturated fats, omega-6 fatty acids, and vitamin E. (National Sunflower Association)
Polyunsaturated fats and vitamin E have been proven to lower cholesterol and in particular, the “bad” LDL cholesterol. The Heart Foundation even recommends sunflower oil as a suitable replacement for butter and dairy based margarines.
