Can Safflower Equal the Benefits of Olive Oil?

Posted by Clayton Luz on Jun 8, 2017 10:01:52 AM

safflower.jpgOleochemicals, such as fatty acids, will be a vital link in the supply chain as their outstanding functionality and versatility make them ideal to be used in a multitude of applications. In addition, the high reactivity of this acid enables the production of a range of derivatives that can be tailored to meet the needs of a number of end-user industries, which use the formulations to produce the ideal blend of functionality and performance, reports BCC Research.

Recently, a team of scientists successfully developed and tested three new varieties of safflower cultivars with an oleic content of up to 75 percent, which is similar to the level of oleic content found in olive oil. The varieties are also non-genetically modified.
