According to the La Tourangelic web site "La Tourangelle Organic Sunflower Oil comes from expeller-pressed GMO-free organic sunflower seeds, grown and processed without the use of any pesticide or chemicals." It has a high level of oleic fatty acids, making it perfect for high temperature cooking with a smoke point of 450 degrees F. La Tourangelle organic sunflower oil is expeller pressed and fully deodorized in accordance with organic regulation. With the high smoke point, and lack of a particular smell or taste, this sunflower oil is an ideal all-around oil for cooking and salad dressings. I have also used it in bread recipes (as I have other La Touranelic oils) in my bread recipes with wonderful results. The little "yeastie" guys seem to enjoy natural oils as much as we do.
In addition to being a wonderful, versatile oil, sunflower oil is considered to be an MCT (Medium Chain Triglyceride)oil that has many health benefits. MCT is a very healthy fat, which bypasses the normal process of digestion and fat break down. Instead it gets absorbed directly into your liver where it is metabolized and acts more like a carbohydrate, providing instant and sustained energy for your body.Read more ›
I think it's fair to call this oil tasteless so no matter what I use it for, the very mild flavor does not interfere with what I am preparing, including baking. I'm trying where ever possible to go organic so that was a draw to this product. Also, oil should be protected from oxidization (spoiling) and the can (better than glass in this case) combined with keeping it away from heat is also a great feature. AND it's CUTE, which is low on my requirement list but adds a smile when I pull it out. It has a flip top with a pouring spout that works well to control the amount you use.
I use it for cooking too, but not on too high of heat, more for gentle sautee (I think only butter and coconut oil are probably safe-ish for really high heat), or in baking.
I love the pretty packaging, and the fact that it protects the oil from light damage.
Only drawback is that the light-weight tins can dent or squish easily and a couple of the bottles came misshapen. But that did not affect the quality of the product greatly, besides how nice it looked. (And they are cute-looking bottles).
