1. Are safflower oil and sunflower oil the same thing?
2. And I'm asking this because today the Huffington post has an article on foods to eat and avoid in relation to cancer. According to David Servan-Schreiber, he says that you shouldn't be using sunflower oils because they are too rich in omega-6 fatty acids and recommends using only canola or olive oil.
I'm curious if sunflower oil isn't all that great since I use it in the Mom's Granola recipe from TKD, and I eat a bit of that every single day. Can someone advise me on what to do? I noticed that in the HuffPo article they mention staying away from the highly processed oils in plastic containers. I bought organic sunflower oil in a glass bottle - does this make a difference?
From what I can gather they are not the same at all. They are both from a flowering plant, but that is the only similarity I thing. You should google both of them and decide for yourself. I use Safflower Oil. It has not taste whatsoever and can withstand high temperatures. Hope this helps
