Kricklewood Farm Cold Pressed Sunflower Oil is a good choice on many levels:
Locally Farmed Using Natural Methods: Our Sunflowers are grown on our farm in Frankville in eastern Ontario without the use of fertilizers or pesticides. We use mechanical weeding methods including ‘tine weeding’ and ‘row crop cultivating’ to encourage growth of the Sunflowers. The seed is harvested and cleaned before pressing.
Locally Produced: Our Sunflower Oil is produced close to our farm using the Cold Press method of oil production. The seed enters the press hopper shell and all and the oil is squeezed out using a screw which turns and creates pressure. The oil settles and is filtered then bottled.
Dietary Benefits: Our Sunflower Oil is a ‘high oleic’ oil which means it is high in monounsaturated fats (the good fats) and low in saturated fats (the bad fats) and contains no trans fats (the very bad fats). It is also rich in Vitamin E and and a source of Vitamins B1 and B5.
Skin Care Benefits: Our Sunflower Oil is high in Vitamin E and is readily absorbed through the skin and can be used as a skin moisturizer and conditioner.
It Tastes like Sunshine! Our Sunflower Oil has a light, nutty flavour which enhances the natural flavour of your favourite dishes.
