I was GREATLY IMPRESSED at the superior quality of this cold pressed Sunflower Oil. I had been searching and searching locally where I live (Long Island, New York) for this product and just couldn't find anything like it. I have to say that Smude's Brand Sunflower Oil is a great product!!! And they shipped it fast and the price very reasonable. It's nice to know that you can order something fragile like this oil online and get it. I recommend it highly.
The contents of the bottle are fine -- tasty, but pleasantly neutral -- and after a second order of this, we got it in the pictured glass bottle.
When we first ordered it, the bottle wasn't as nice as the one pictured. That time, instead of getting one of the bottles that we thought we could clean and use for other things, we instead got one of the typical half-translucent square frosted plastic bottles from the store. It was the same label, and the same contents, but the bottle itself was a disappointment.
But this time, we got both the oil and the lovely bottle too. I don't know if they bottle both ways, or if the other bottle was just in old packaging, but it's nice to have it either way.
Because of health reasons i follow a fairly paleo/Primal Blueprint diet regimen and since i have not found any mayonnaise that comes close to what i am looking for, i decided to make my own. The recipe i chose to use is in the book, Primal Blueprint Healthy Sauces, Dressings, and Toppings by Mark Sisson with Jennifer Meier. The recipe calls for "cold-pressed high-oleic or high-stearic sunflower oil". I put that description into Google and Smude Enterprises Cold Pressed High Oleic Sunflower Oil is what came up. I ordered it and immediately made my first batch of mayonnaise. It was delicious! I then followed one of the recipes from the Smude Oil website for a pear salad and it was fantastic. I then made another vinaigrette using half EVOO and half of Smude's sunflower oil and it was light and delicious as well. This oil comes from a family owned and operated business who take pride in their product. I highly recommend this oil.
Not only are you guys making a great product, but you are also great to work with! Thank you SO much for delivering my order to Heaven and Earth Essentials in Sauk Centre! ♥
Love this stuff!
Nice mild taste. Good for oil pulling. Also very good for cooking and frying. I highly recommend it. Try it.
I bought my very first bottle last weekend at the Holmes City farmers market, and I Love it! My fish tasted so good. I also bought your peppermint massage oil. It feels so good on my skin. So glad I met you folks!
The quality and taste of this sunflower oil is amazing. I used it for oil pulling and did not have a problem making 20 minutes. I also used it on my skin and found it to be great for dry skin.
I read that High Oleic Sunflower Oil is good for you, so I've ordered this several times. It came right away. It tastes fine, it is easy to cook with. Great product.
Fresh, great taste, came quickly. I used this to make gluten free egg rolls when having a guest with a salicylate allergy.
It was I looking for at the right price. I'll be continuously using this product.
I purchased a couple of gallons of Smudes Sunflower Oil last month. I used it in my deep fryer to fry french fries.. They were the best french fries we have every had, I had been using Canola oil previously, I’ll never use that again.. Smude’s sunflower oil is the best. I’ll never use anything else to make crisp golden brown french fries. Thanks for making such a wonderful, cold pressed, non GMO product.
This oil smells very seed like and rich. I also have a Wegman's brand sunflower oil that claims its organic and whatnot, but it has no smell and is lighter in color.
This item was packed well and with Styrofoam. Although it arrived frozen from the extreme cold outside, it defrosted within a day. Great value for such a big bottle.
We use this sunflower oil for everything! It has completely replaced all other oils in our house. The last thing I gave up was vegetable oil in my banana bread, when I finally used Smude's it was even more delightful. Love this stuff!
