Oil from sunflower seeds is widely available and sold for its health properties, but buyers beware the oil is very delicate with a low smoking point and is often extracted using toxic hydrocarbons which are then removed before sale never the less, some of these hydrocarbons are lost in the process and some residues exist in the oils as well as escape into the atmosphere and water outflows where they are harmful pollutants. Whilst this is approved by current food and manufacturing regulations, we believe that it is unnecessary and should be avoided.
Look for cold pressed virgin sunflower oil to dress your salads. Try Emil Noels Extra Virgin Organic Sunflower Oil available online and in good health food shops see www.emilenoel.com for details. They were the first company in Europe to produce cold pressed, organic oils back in the 1970s.
To overcome the problems of low smoking points, manufacturers denature the oil by either a chemical or physical process as this alters the profile of the oil. If you want denatures sunflower oil for stir frying, try Emile Noels Organic Sunflower Oil for Frying the oil has been treated by steam to denature it and make it suitable for use at higher temperature no hydrocarbons are used in the process.
