We press the oil using the traditional mechanical method at a temperature lower than 50°C, which helps to preserve all the beneficial macro and microelements, found in sunflower seeds. Omega-9 monounsaturated fatty acid, as well as Omega-3 and Omega-6 polyunsaturated fatty acids, are the basis of sunflower oil, and their amount in its composition reaches 90%.
Thanks to them, the oil reduces the blood cholesterol level, strengthens the heart muscle and helps our body absorb fat-soluble vitamins.
Cold-pressed sunflower oil contains alpha-tocopherol, or vitamin E, unlike the refined oil, which has all nutrients removed from it during the hot steam processing. Vitamin E is the main assistant in strengthening of the protective body functions and fighting against free radicals.
Sunflower seed oil by Bioteca has a light golden color and a delicate, mild aroma.
Sunflower seed oil is a product that has been used by people for many years. The number of recipes, which include this oil, is unbelievable.
It is difficult to adhere to proper nutrition with a fast pace of life. Sweet bars and buns do not satisfy hunger for a long time. We are for healthy snacks, so we recommend you swapping your chocolate bar to a whole-grain bread sandwich with chicken, cheese, cherry tomatoes, and arugula, drizzled with sunflower seed oil.
We recommend using sunflower seed oil as a supplement to a salad of succulent vegetables, nuts and seeds. Fans of nutritious cold dishes will appreciate the homemade mayonnaise, made on the basis of sunflower oil, as a dressing for your favorite chicken and pineapple salad.
We recommend cooking light pesto sauce based on pine nuts and sunflower seed oil, and use it to season toasts or pizza.
We do not recommend using cold-pressed oils for frying, because heat minimizes their useful properties.
