What is Safflower Oil?
Safflower oil, as the name infers, is made from the extract of safflower seeds.
It has an oleic-acid content normally between 80% and 83%, one of the highest of all cooking oils on the market, giving it stability for high-temperature cooking. The high oleic-acid content also contributes to lowering bad (LDL) cholesterol and maintaining good (HDL) cholesterol.
In addition to being all natural, our oil also has great cooking benefits because of the varieties we use and our soil climate. Whether you are deep frying, baking, stir frying or sautéing our oil is right for you.
The Oil Barn Colorado is a small operation located in the Little Thompson River valley in Berthoud, Colorado. We currently bring our organic safflower in from The Oil Barn Montana. As demand continues to grow we wish to build our own processing facility and contract our own farmers right here in Colorado. Thank you for your support as we advance sustainable resource use, healthy products and a local economy.
We have a deep respect for the earth and understand the value of healthy farming practices. While building our business we wish to steward Colorado land and water for all subsequent generations.
