Our second category of Organic & Non-GMO Sunflower Protein is our 50 High Oleic line which features four (4) options from specially selected high oleic sunflower seeds—all of which guarantee the following:

  • Minimum 80% Oleic Acid
  • Minimum 50% protein
  • Maximum 23% fiber
  • Maximum 12% fat

Following selection, these specialty seeds are peeled, partially defatted by mechanical process and ground to a powder which produces a protein source that is neutral in color, odor and flavor. This line of protein is highly stable and features good water and fat binding capabilities.

Why does Oleic Acid content matter?

Ingredients with a higher level of Oleic Acid content (>70%) are highly desirable thanks to their increased stability across Food & Beverage applications, as well as serving as a healthier source of fatty acids.
