Organic Sunflower Oil Linoleic
Organic, Linoleic Sunflower Oil and Its Use in the Food Industry
The food industry makes use of the mild taste of organic linoleic sunflower oil and uses it, for example, to produce mayonnaise, tartar sauce or margarine. It is also suitable as a salad oil, for baking and marinating. It impresses with a high proportion of the essential, polyunsaturated linoleic acid.
In contrast to the oleic acid-rich (= high-oleic) organic linoleic sunflower oil, this oil in its natural form is not suitable for frying or deep-frying. For this, refining is necessary in order to process the linoleic sunflower oil in a heat-stable manner.
The sunflower actually originates from North America and spread further and further south. The Incas worshiped the sunflower as the face of God. At the end of the 16th century it was brought to Europe by Spanish sailors.
The sunflower plant with its coarse hairy stem grows between one and two meters high. Your bud turns towards the sunlight. In the course of a sunny day, it follows the course of the sun from east to west. The unmistakable, blooming, yellow daisy flower mostly points continuously to the east.
The sunflower oil comes from the seeds, the sunflower seeds, in the flower head. They are peeled, ground and then gently cold-pressed.
