With growing health consciousness, a transition can be witnessed in favor of oils that are positioned as healthy. Soft oil varieties such as sunflower, mustard, groundnut, and rice bran are perceived to be healthier than palm oils and their fractions. Sunflower oil consists of a mix of monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids and has a high smoking point. It is therefore considered suitable for Indian cuisines as it can hold onto its nutritional content at higher temperatures. Freedom Sunflower Oil is fortified with Vitamins A & D. It is also rich in naturally occurring Vitamin E. It is a preferred choice for daily consumption by health-conscious customers.
According to Mr. Akshay Chowdhry, Group Vice President, Gemini Edibles & Fats India Ltd said “We are delighted to be recognized as the ‘Highest Importer of Sunflower Oil’ for the 2nd time.
