Know Your Oils - Safflower Oil

Safflower Oil

Have you seen a safflower before? We hadn’t! One of the most widely used oils and so often confused with sunflower oil, is Safflower oil. Though they come from the same family, safflowers miss the large black disk in the middle of the flowers!

One of humanity’s oldest crops, safflowers were used in Egypt at the time of the pharaohs!
Safflower oil is used in salad dressings and in cooking oil. The oil is colourless and has a high smoke point making it ideal for deep frying!

Of late culinary use has declined due to its relatively high content of transfat, being substituted by coconut oil.
