SUNFLOWER OIL For Weight Loss
Sunflower oil is composed of approximately 90% unsaturated lipids and 10% saturated lipids. The dominant unsaturated lipids are linoleic acid (60%) and oleic acid (30%). By using cold-pressed sunflower oil with salads, you will obtain a very good supply of vitamin E (41 mg) and omega-6 (63g) but only a trace of omega-3, so add a teaspoon of linseed/flax oil to your sunflower oil bottle for greater benefits and balance. Sunflower oil is available at all supermarkets.
It is produced via a chemical extraction process; such oil is best used for baking or frying but keep the cold-pressed oil specially for salad dressings. The vitamin E content of sunflower oil will help preserve the quality of the oil, as vitamin E retards oxidation and the formation of free radicals. Sunflower oil has hardly any taste and is suitable for cooking pancakes, scones and other delicately flavoured recipes. Let the sunshine in with sunflower oil.
