In Borges we are vertically integrated in the process of Sunflower. We provide the seeds of our own varieties to farmers, give them the expertise needed to produce them, and collect the harvest for later crushing them in our facilities for the production of crude oil we refine immediately afterwards so that it can become suitable for human consumption.
Sunflower oil is mainly composed of polyunsaturated fatty acids which include linoleic acids. These fatty acids are considered essential and must be provided daily through food, since they cannot be synthesized by the body. Sunflower oil also provides monounsaturated fat in the form of oleic acid, but in smaller amounts than that found in olive oil.
