Local Cooking Oil?

January 27, 2011

NY locavores – I just learned today we now have the option of LOCAL cooking oil!

Stolor Organics, from Cazenovia, NY sells cold-pressed, unrefined, non-gmo certified organic sunflower oil.

According to their press release, their oil has a light, slightly nutty flavor, and “is a nice alternative to olive oil in salads or as a dipping oil with some fresh crusty bread.”

Sunflower oil is a “good oil” similar (yet different) to olive oil.  Olive oil is high in monounsaturated fat and sunflower oil is high in polyunsaturated fat. As for nutritional info:

OLIVE OIL

 

SUNFLOWER OIL

Sunflower Oil

Actually, from comparing the two NI labels, the sunflower oil actually looks to be a little better for you!

I’ve been trying to buy some all day, but their website database appears to be down.

I will definitely be doing a review.
