Sunflower Oil, High Oleic RBDW

INGREDIENT SPECIFICATION: Sunflower, High Oleic
CERTIFICATE OF ANALYSIS: Each shipment to include certificate.
DESCRIPTION: New hybrids of the traditional sunflower species product an oil unusually high in oleic acid C18:1.The appearance of this new hybrid only differs in the color of the kernel shells from off white to silver grey compared to black resp. black stripes.The seed is pressed; the obtained oil is filtered and subsequently refined. The result is a light transparent high oleic sunflower seed oil with excellent oxidative stability.
APPEARANCE, FLAVOR & COLOR Light transparent oil, nearly neutral in odor and taste.Color Lovibond 5¼:red = 1.5,yellow = 12

STORAGE: Keep away from direct sunlight at room temperature in tightly sealed containers (nitrogen blanketed).
USAGE: The excellent stability to oxidation is comparable to that of a good olive oil and approximately twice as high as with traditional sunflower oil and soybean oils. It is, therefore, particularly suited as a fat component and carrier for pharmaceutical and cosmetic formulations. Its usage in food: in baker’s ware and pastries (un-hydrogenated spray oil), baby food and margarines, as a baking and frying oil (high smoke point). Like olive oil, high oleic sunflower seed oil is believed to favorably influence the human cholesterol metabolism due to its high content of monounsaturated oleic acid    (C 18:1).
