Health benefits – Sunflower seed oil

There are three types of sunflower oil, each with different blends of fatty acids. These three variants are

  • linoleic,
  •  high oleic, and
  •  NuSun.

The differences between the three mainly stem from the specific percentages of monounsaturated, polyunsaturated and saturated fats.

All are low in saturated fat so are considered healthy additions to a meal or diet.

Sunflower oil can be used in stovetop cooking and also as a component in baked goods. NuSun in particular is good for baking, as it withstands much higher temperatures than many other oils.

Fat Balances

The three types of sunflower oil have different varieties of healthy fats.

All three are low in saturated fat.

Linoleic sunflower oil is mainly composed of polyunsaturated fats, specifically omega-6 fatty acids essential in body processes including building strong hair and healing wounds.

High oleic sunflower oil mostly contains the monounsaturated fat omega-9. Omega-9 fatty acids have been implicated in helping preserve memory, prevent cancer and reduce blood pressure.

NuSun is a blend of linoleic and oleic oils. It is capable of withstanding extremely high cooking temperatures, so it does not form trans fats as many oils do when cooked or baked.
