It has a light, neutral flavor, light texture, very similar to Sunflower Oil. It also has a higher heat tolerance, making it ideal for cooking.
How it's made: Safflower Oil comes from the seeds of the safflower plant. These plants are grown using best practices for Non-GMO avoidance. The seeds are crushed and expeller pressed to extract the oil. This oil is obtained using only physical means, and no solvents are used to aid in the process.
Expeller Pressed Safflower Oil is pressed from the seeds of the Safflower plant (a thistle plant grown in
hot, dry areas) using mechanical means only. These seeds have been cultivated to yield a high oleic crop
for increased nutritional value, and do not undergo genetic modification in any way.
The final product is a refined, bleached and deodorized oil. It has a neutral color and bland flavor, and be
used in various applications such as mayonnaise, salad dressings, sauces, canned foods, bakery
products, and as cooking oil.

fat. It also does not loose itʼs nutritional composition during cooking.
