I bought this oil and mixed it with other oil for my face. Sunflower seed scent was too strong for me.
By Parker S. Peterson
from Asheville, NC
It is as advertised but not as I expect
I bought this oil because I like the taste of Spectrums expeller pressed sunflower oil so much. I thought that the cold-pressed oil would be even better. However I was somewhat disappointed. Looking back I dont know why I was so surprised but it tastes just like raw sunflower seeds no discernible difference except for the texture naturally. If you like raw sunflower seeds you will like this but I prefer seeds at least slightly toasted but not burnt rancid however. If my understanding is correct expeller pressed oils are processed at a higher temperature changing the flavor from the raw sunflower seed flavor to something much closer to artichoke unmistakeably. The two plants are botanically related both being members of the Asteraceæ family. The Aster family is the most highly evolved plant family. The head of a sunflower is actually multiple flowers. So theres that. If you do use this oil just know that like many other oil such as soy corn sesame canola etc sunflower oil isnt necessarily unhealthy but by itself is unbalanced. It should be only a small part of the diet and should be balanced with potent sources of high-quality omega 3s from sources such as avocados free-range OG eggs grass-fed dairy flax (linseed) algae chia etc.
no rancidity dark bottle
Taste was nowhere near as good as Spectrums expeller pressed sunflower oil in my opinion. It is not a balanced oil on its own as it is high in omega 6s so it much be balanced out with other things that I mentioned in the main review.
