transition® sunflower oil
Vegetable oil with a high smoke point
Transition® Sunflower Oil is formulated with mid-oleic cultivars to raise the monounsaturated fatty acid levels to those seen in olive and canola oil. It’s high smoke point allows it to be used as a deep-frying medium and it imparts a light, neutral taste to cooked foods. Antioxidants and antifoam agents are added to extend shelf life. Sunflower oil by nature offers a non-GMO alternative to soybean and canola oil as there are no commercially grown GMO equivalents of sunflowers.

Pure fats are not attacked by microbiological species, since there must be a nutrient-containing aqueous phase in which the organism can grow. The moisture content of this product is below 0.1%, and at this moisture level product will not support any microbial growth.
Correct Handling and Storage
Care must be taken during storage and shipment to avoid damaging the flavor. BBSI recommends during shipping Transition Sunflower Oil is kept below 90F (32C) and above 40F (5C). During warehouse or kitchen storage, BBSI recommends Transition Sunflower Oil is kept between 65 and 80F (18-27C). Packaged animal fats will absorb off-flavors if stored near food items with strong odors. Unsaturated fatty acids will oxidize if kept in a warm place over a long period of time.
