A high proportion of omega-6 for the everyday wholefood diet

Safflower Oil

· virgin ·
500 ml

Our Safflower Oil Virgin is first cold pressed from the seeds of the Safflower. The German byname of the plant translates as “dyer’s thistle”. It indeed has already in ancient Egypt been mainly used for the purpose of dyeing, but during the same era also for the production of oil and ointments. A reason for the latter might be that, in comparison to all other known vegetable oils, safflower oil boasts the highest proportions of essential fatty acid omega-6 (linoleic acid), and is above that rich in vitamin E. This makes the mild oil the ideal companion for your everyday wholefood diet.

Through its subtle aroma, virgin safflower oil cleverly accentuates the taste characteristics of your dishes. It is particularly good with lettuce, sprouts, artichokes, and pumpkin. It also is appreciated in cosmetics: Use safflower oil to gently remove make-up and even waterproof mascara.
