Hulled sunflower seeds contain up to 60% oil which, on the average, is 88% unsaturated. Natural sunflower seed oil, cold-pressed and unrefined has a light yellow to rich golden color, depending on the seed, and tastes pleasant and nutty. Slight cloudiness of unrefined sunflower seed oil is a sign of high quality. Use Flora Sunflower Oil cold in salad dressings and mayonnaise. It can also be used for light stir-frying, sautéing and baking.

Providing Essential Fatty Acids
Flora Oils are truly cold-pressed and unrefined. All seeds used in our oils are grown organically and are selected for their high quality and abundance of Essential Fatty Acids, EFAs. To ensure Flora's Sunflower Oil is the safest, best tasting oil possible, it has been non-GMO Project Verified.
EFAs such as omega-3s and omega-6s are needed by our bodies, but the body cannot make them on its own. They must be obtained from dietary sources. Using only the finest ingredients, Flora is proud to support your healthy lifestyle with a full line of Pure Premium Oils.
The quality of our oils is ensured by a third party certifying agency, Quality Assurance International (QAI).
These oils are bottled in non-reactive dark brown glass bottles to prevent deterioration from light, and are stamped for freshness. As an additional protective measure, we use a nitrogen flush to minimize oxidation, and ensure that top quality is maintained.
Made with care and the utmost attention to detail, Flora Oils retain their authentic color, delicate flavor and primary nutritional characteristics. Providing valuable essential fatty acids from natural sources, these healthful, Pure Premium Oils complement a wide variety of nutritious meals.
