So, what is carthamus tinctorius?

Carthamus tinctorius, also known as safflower, is a highly versatile and nutritious food ingredient. Extracted from the seeds of the safflower plant, this oil is rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids, which are essential for maintaining a healthy heart and brain. Additionally, carthamus tinctorius is a natural source of vitamin E, which is known for its powerful antioxidant properties that protect against cellular damage caused by free radicals. It is also commonly used as a natural food coloring agent due to its vibrant yellow to red hues. Its mild flavor makes it a popular ingredient in salad dressings, baked goods, and as a replacement for other cooking oils.
