Sunflower Oil, a blend of various nutrients and vitamins, offers a great everyday solution for your culinary needs. It is suitable for medium to high temperature cooking and baking. Linoleic sunflower oil, the commonly used cooking oil, has higher levels of the essential fatty acids called polyunsaturated fat. High oleic sunflower oils are classified as having monounsaturated levels of 80% and above. Diets combined with a low fat content and high levels of oleic acid have been suggested to lower cholesterol which, in turn, results in a smaller risk of heart disease.
