High Linoleic Safflower Oil


High linoleic safflower oil contains more polyunsaturates than any other specialty vegetable oil. This oil remains one of the best sources of linoleic acid, an essential fatty acid that cannot be synthesized by the human body but is a nutritional necessity for healthy development and growth.

Medical research in the 1960's and 1970's demonstrated cholesterol's effect on heart disease. Consumers responded by purchasing significantly more polyunsaturated vegetable oils available in: margarines, salad oils and dressings, and nutritional supplements as a means of reducing the risk of heart disease.

Oilseeds' high linoleic safflower oil is low in saturated fats, making it a healthy choice for the heart and cardiovascular system.
