High Oleic Safflower Oil


High oleic safflower oil is an excellent solution for food manufacturers searching for healthy alternatives to saturated or hydrogenated oils. High oleic safflower oil is a naturally occurring liquid vegetable oil that exhibits extended shelf life without chemical modification of the original oil. A neutral flavor and odor make this oil highly suitable for a wide range of food related applications.

Oilseeds International’s high oleic safflower oil has been a healthy alternative to food manufacturers for more than 30 years. High levels of oleic acid in the oil provide stability that is more commonly seen in saturated or hydrogenated oils, as well as oils with added antioxidants. The neutral flavor and odor allow for a wide range of food applications, including: spray oil for dried fruits, liquid flavor dispersant, seasonings, and nutritional supplements. High oleic safflower oil has also long been used in infant formulas.

Recent regulations impacting trans fatty acid consumption have led to high oleic safflower oil increasingly being used in deep fat frying and roasting applications. Nutritional research demonstrates that a diet with a high monounsaturate to polyunsaturated ratio is an excellent way to reduce the risk of heart disease. Monounsaturates have been shown to promote a healthier ratio of HDL to LDL, or good cholesterol to bad cholesterol.
