Vergezocht HO oils are cold pressed using a state of the art press imported from Germany. No chemicals are used in the extraction process. Up to 4 times more Vitamin E than in Olive Oil. The smoking point is ± 238ºC, which is about 100ºC higher than for example extra virgin olive oil which makes it ideal for both salads and deep frying. It is ideal for repeated frying (re-usable up to 6 times). It contains no preservatives or colourants as is often the case with other oils. It is naturally stable and resistant to turning rancid (normally accelerated by high levels of polyunsaturated fats). No chemicals are used during processing. HO sunflower was planted commercially for the first time in Africa on the farm Vergezocht in the Bainsvlei area. The dryer climate around Bloemfontein is ideal for the cultivation of HO sunflower and no insecticides need to be used on the plants. Approved as part of The Heart and Stroke Foundation of South Africa eating plan. Tested and approved by the University of the Free State: Prof. J.L.F. Kock.
