SUNFLOWER SEED OIL Usage And Synthesis

Chemical Properties

Pale-yellow, semidrying oil; mild taste; pleasant odor. Soluble in alcohol, ether, chloroform, and carbon disulfide. Combustible.

Chemical Properties

Sunflower oil occurs as a clear, light yellow-colored liquid with a bland, agreeable taste.

Uses

Modified alkyd resins, soap, edible oil, margarine, shortening, dietary supplement.

Uses

sunflower seed oil is expressed from sunflower seeds.

Uses

sunflower oil (Helianthus annuus) is commonly used as a carrier oil, it softens and smooths the skin. Sunflower oil has a high linoleic acid and other essential fatty acid content. In addition, it contains lecithin, carotenoids, and waxes. This oil is considered a non-comedogenic raw material.

Uses

Sunflower Oil is a highly polyunsaturated oil obtained from sunflower seeds. There are two types of sunflower grown: an oilseed type used as a vegetable oil, and a nonoilseed type used for human food and bird seed. The composition of sunflower oil varies according to location and growing temperature. In general, sunflowers grown above the 39th parallel are high in linoleic acid and those grown below are high in oleic acid. The high linoleic variety is used for margarine and salad oil, while the high oleic variety is used in frying applications. This bland-flavored oil has a smoke point of 485–490°f (252–254°c) which gives it utility in baking, cooking, and frying foods. It is also used as a salad oil. In the hydrogenated form, it is used in margarine and shortenings.

Production Methods

Sunflower oil is obtained from the fruits and seeds (achenes) of the sunflower, Helianthus annus (Compositae), by mechanical means or by extraction.

Pharmaceutical Applications

Sunflower oil is widely used as an edible oil, primarily in oleomargarine. It is also used extensively in cosmetics and pharmaceutical formulations.
Therapeutically, sunflower oil is used to provide energy and essential fatty acids for parenteral nutrition. Studies have shown that sunflower oil may be used in intramuscular injections without inducing tissue damage.

Safety

Sunflower oil is widely used in food products and on its own as an edible oil. It is also used extensively in cosmetics and topical pharmaceutical formulations, and is generally regarded as a relatively nontoxic and nonirritant material.

storage

Sunflower oil should be stored in an airtight, well-filled container, protected from light. Stability may be improved by the addition of an antioxidant such as butylated hydroxytoluene.

Incompatibilities

The oxidative stability of sunflower oil is reduced in the presence of iron oxides and zinc oxide.
Sunflower oil forms a ‘skin’ after being exposed to air for 2–3 weeks.

Regulatory Status

GRAS listed. Included in nonparenteral medicines licensed in the UK.
