This was the second oil I pressed. When I first used Andreas Sunflower Seed Oil, it brought relief to my aching joints, as well as my left foot, which has been operated on 4 times since 1989 due to a very bad accident. The vitamin E in the oil helped lubricate my joints, with the cartilage having been warn away over years of hard training as a gymnast.
After years of being able to cook and experiment with Andreas Sunflower Seed Oil, it has become one of my favorite cooking oils. I use it almost every time I cook, as it does not produce a burnt taste when searing meat or sautéing vegetables. I use it in salad dressing, for sautéing vegetables for chow mein, mixed into my German potato salad, drizzled over my famous red cabbage, and much more. It is a fantastic all-around cooking oil since it has a light, clean taste, and adds nutritional value and health benefits to every dish I prepare.

Sunflower seeds and sunflower seed oil have been used for culinary and medicinal purposes by many cultures throughout history. Sunflower seeds are an abundant source of nutrients, such as protein, fiber, magnesium, phosphorus, copper, selenium, and iron.
