Sunflower oil is the non-volatile oil pressed from the seeds of sunflower (Helianthus annuus).Sunflower oil is commonly used in food as a frying oil, and in cosmetic formulations as an emollient.The world's total production of sunflower oil in 2014 was nearly 16 million tonnes, with Ukraine and Russia as the largest producers.. Sunflower oil is a mixture mainly of the polyunsaturated fat
Cooking oils are composed of various fractions of fatty acids. For the purpose of frying food, oils high in monounsaturated or saturated fats are generally popular, while oils high in polyunsaturated fats are less desirable. High oleic acid oils include almond, macadamia, olive, pecan, pistachio, and high-oleic cultivars of safflower and sunflower.
Solvent Extraction. Solvent Extraction is a process which involves extracting oil from oil-bearing materials by treating it with a low boiler solvent as opposed to extracting the oils by mechanical pressing methods (such as expellers, hydraulic presses, etc.)
Cooking oil manufacture involves cleaning the seeds, grinding them, pressing, and extrading the oil from them. In extracting, a volatile hydrocarbon such as hexane is used as a solvent.
I like cooking with extra light olive oil and butter. This is mainly because olive oil is high in monounsaturated fatty acids (73%) while being low in polyunsaturated fatty acids (less than 10%).
This chapter explores the effects of moringa seed oil on health and nutrition. Moringa oleifera Lam seeds contain a high proportion of oil that can launch the plant as a major source of plant oil for edible and non-edible purposes. Application of enzymes for oil extraction, though giving lower yields compared to solvent-assisted extraction, may allow labeling of the oil as organic oil.
