What is High Oleic Oil?

High Oleic Oils are a new type of oil. It is so called because it is high in Oleic Acid, a fatty acid, also called omega 9 fat. It is a monounsaturated fat similar to that produced by the human body. It is a good fat (hence it is produced by the liver) and is used to make human body cell walls and components.

Regular fats tend to be solid fats that are mainly saturated fats such as butter, lard or Palm Oil. Or liquid fats such as Rapeseed and vegetable oils that have a mix of fats, usually a significant amount of Omega 6 (largely Linoleic Acid) - this is called an ‘essential fat’ because the body needs it but cannot make it and so it must be eaten. Unfortunately, the body needs a balance of Omega 3 and Omega 6 but we consume far too much Omega 6. Too much of the wrong fats can cause inflammation of cells, a precursor to many illnesses.

Sunflower plants are highly sustainable. They are a regenerative crop self-fertilising and requiring moderate water. They are resistant to pests and do not require neonicotinoid insecticides (ie they are bee friendly), they do not require nitrogenous fertiliser (which gives off heavy greenhouse gasses). Once the cooking oil is used, it can be reused for transport as biofuel – reducing the need for fossil fuel in road transport. It is a very climate friendly option.
