So, what is aceite de gìrasol?

Aceite de girasol, also known as sunflower oil, is a light and mild-tasting vegetable oil that is extracted from the seeds of sunflowers. It is high in oleic and linoleic acids, which are considered to be heart-healthy fats. Aceite de girasol has a high smoke point, making it ideal for cooking at high temperatures without producing harmful compounds. Its neutral flavor makes it a versatile ingredient that can be used in a wide range of dishes, from sautéing vegetables and frying foods to baking cakes and making salad dressings. Additionally, aceite de girasol is low in saturated fat and rich in Vitamin E, which acts as an antioxidant and helps to protect cells against damage caused by free radicals.
