Sunflower Oil (Unhydrogenated) FCC Food Grade
CAS: [8008-31-9]

Sunflower Oil (Unhydrogenated) occurs as a light amber colored oil. It is obtained from the seed of the sunflower plant Helianthus annuus (Fam. Asteraceae) by mechanical expression or solvent extraction. It is refined, bleached, and deodorized to substantially remove free fatty acids, phospholipids, color, odor and flavor components, and miscellaneous other non-oil materials. It is a liquid at 21C to 27C, but traces of wax may cause the oil to cloud, unless removed by winterization.
Function: Coating agent; texturizer.

Identification: Unhydrogenated Sunflower Oil exhibits the following composition profile of fatty acids determined as directed under Fatty Acid Composition.
Cold Test: Passes test.
Color: (AOCS-Wesson) Not more than 1.3 red.
Free Fatty Acids: (as oleic acid) Not more than 0.1%.
Iodine Value: Between 110 and 143.
Lead: Not more than 0.1 mg/kg.
Linolenic Acid: Not more than 1.5%.
Peroxide Value: Not more than 10 meq/kg.
Unsaponifiable: Matter Not more than 1.5%.
Water: Not more than 0.1%.
