Kaizer High Oleic Sunflower Oil is nothing like your supermarket variety
The high oleic version, extracted from a special variety of sunflower seeds, contains more healthy fats than even the healthiest olive oil. And if this isn’t enough, the mild flavour of Kaizer’s High Oleic Sunflower Oil has an amazing degree of culinary versatility.
Why Kaizer High Oleic Sunflower Oil is the only sunflower you should eat
Refined supermarket sunflower oils oxidise rapidly during cooking. Oils that are oxidised are well-known to cause inflammation throughout your body. Inflammation slowly and steadily erodes your family’s long-term health, which gradually increases the need for frequent medical attention.
Kaizer High Oleic Sunflower Oil comes from a specific variety of sunflower seed with two times the monounsaturated fats (MUFAs, good fats) than the common variety of cooking oil. The MUFAs are particularly resistant to oxidation during cooking.
This property makes it a safer, healthy, and flexible oil for all modes of use: from drizzling to high-heat cooking.
A neutral tasting everyday alternative to olive oil
Kaizer’s High Oleic Sunflower Oil is an excellent replacement for dishes where the olive oil flavour is unwanted. It is therefore a worthy addition in your cooking arsenal. After all, not every dish needs the flavour of olives.
Oleic fatty acids for reviving the ageing brain
Oleic fatty acid plays a role in optimal brain health. A study conducted in Japan among the elderly concluded that: “fat intake, especially oleic acid intake, may be effective for both cognitive and memory functions.”1 In geriatric patients, oleic acid has also been shown to improve energy and appetite.2
Vitamin E in sunflower seed oil
Vitamin E performs several vital functions in your body.3 Our bodies don’t make vitamin E so we must get it from our diet. Vitamin E is an antioxidant that supports your health in a wide variety of ways. One of which is its ability to defend the body from stress, caused by lifestyle, environment, or disruptive events.
Not all forms of vitamin E are alike. The best type of vitamin E is natural d-alpha tocopherol, which is abundant in sunflower oil. Skip vitamin E supplements in pill form. Instead, cook with Kaizer sunflower oil, and fill your daily requirement of the absorbed vitamin E.4
Type 2 Diabetes and high oleic sunflower oil
Nerve damage in the hands and feet occurs in about 50% of the individuals who have Type 2 Diabetes.5 This condition can cause substantial suffering. Vitamin E has been shown to improve nerve conduction and could be an effective supplementary treatment for individuals with mild or severe neuropathy.6
In addition, oleic fatty acid positively impacts the severity of Type 2 Diabetes. The Mediterranean diet, which is high in oleic fatty acid, has been shown to improve insulin sensitivity. Kaizer High Oleic Sunflower oil may improve fasting glucose and A1C levels.7
