About Sunflower Oil
In Europe, sunflower is grown annually in the warmer areas of France, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, Spain and Italy, as well as in Ukraine and Russia. Sunflower oil suppliers predominantly supply the product as a food source in Spain, Germany, France, Italy, Romania and the UK. The sunflower can yield up to 45% of sunflower oil. Beyond its uses in food preparation and cooking, it constitutes an excellent source of protein for the animal feed industry.
Sunflower oil is interesting for its richness in polyunsaturated fatty acids, i.e. omega-6 fatty acids in comparison to other edible oils. It is also one of the best natural dietary sources of vitamin E. Sunflower oil can be used in blends of vegetable oils (rapeseed, soybean, corn, etc.) and in spreadable fats to improve the vitamin E content of the products.
Per Regulation (EC) No 1924/2006, foods can only make nutrition claims approved by the European Commission, based on a scientific assessment by the European Food Safety Authority. Due to its nutritional profile, Sunflower oil bears the following nutrition claims: High polyunsaturated fat, high unsaturated fat, high vitamin E.
