Available on markets and directly from producers.
Vegetable oils with sunflower seed (classic or oleic), rapeseed, camelina, hemp and linseed extracts are included in the ‘Signé Poitou-Charentes’ quality initiative.
Produced by first cold pressing, they are said to be ‘virgin’ because they are clarified by physical means and do not undergo any chemical treatment or processing thus making it possible to preserve all their nutritive and organoleptic qualities. Seeds are non-GMO and grown without using any phytosanitary product. A dozen farmers forming the GIE, have participated in the sunflower oil quality initiative since 2004. In 2012, the initiative added rapeseed oils, hemp, camelina and linseed to its listing. This range of products has not only gastronomic qualities but also cosmetic for certain ones (such as hemp).
