Exploring the Health Benefits ofBella Del Sol High Oleic Sunflower Oil 

The high oleic content of Bella Del Sol lends to a higher content on monounsaturated fats and lower Omega-6 content.

You’re familiar with olive and avocado oils, but these aren’t the only cooking oils with significant health benefits. Oils can be categorized by the types of fats they contain, including saturated and unsaturated fats. These forms of fat not only denote the consistency of the oil (solid vs. liquid at room temperature), but they determine the health benefits of a given oil. Oils high in unsaturated fats pose the most health benefits. This is why olive and avocado oils gained so much popularity. These oils, and others with high oleic content, are particularly high in monounsaturated fats, making them a healthy choice for cooking oil.  

Bella Del Sol High Oleic Sunflower Oil 

Sunflower oil is most commonly used in high temperature cooking, including roasting and frying. While it is typically not known for its high oleic and monounsaturated fat content, Bella Del Sol sunflower oil is an exception to this rule. With an impressive composition of unsaturated fats, including Omega-9 fatty acid, Bella Del Sol offers its unique cooking application in combination with healthy fat composition. Additionally, while many seed oils have a fat composition that may promote inflammation, the high oleic content of Bella Del Sol lends to a higher content on monounsaturated fats and lower Omega-6 content. This actually provides the oil with anti-inflammatory properties. Read on to learn how incorporating more healthy fats into your daily food preparation can lead to various health benefits.  

High oleic oil is a class that earns its name from its specific chemistry. Its chemistry is what allows high oleic oils to be a concentrated source of monounsaturated fats (MUFA’s). This form of healthy fat even appears to help lower bad cholesterol levels and reduce the risk of heart disease. Because of this, they are considered to be much healthier than saturated and trans fats. A specific form of MUFA that appears to have anti-inflammatory properties, and may help reduce the risk of chronic diseases and certain types of cancer, is Omega-9 fatty acid. Looking at the below chart, you can see Bella Del Sol oil contains a significantly higher amount of MUFA’s compared to conventional sunflower oil. This composition allows it to be a more nutritious option than other sunflower oils.
