    SAFFLOWER HERBAL DESCRIPTION

    SAFFLOWER DYE, OIL & HERB

    Safflower (Carthamus tinctorius) is also known as American Saffron, Zafran, Bastard Saffron, Gami Honghwain, Dyer’s Saffron and False Saffron. Safflower is native to the Mediterranean and Middle East countries and cultivated widely throughout Europe and the U.S. In India, they cultivate Safflower mainly for the oil from the seeds and a reddish dye from the flower; however, the flowers have been used in Ayurvedic medicines, and European and Japanese pharmacopoeias. Traditionally, this herb was used in China to treat coronary disease, thrombotic disorders, and menstrual problems. Safflower has purgative, diaphoretic, and diuretic properties.

    Safflower is a highly branched, herbaceous, thistle-like annual plant. It is commercially cultivated for vegetable oil extracted from the seeds. Plants are 12 to 59 inches tall, average height about 39 inches, with a single, smooth, upright stem. The plant produces profuse globular flower heads having yellow, orange, or deep red flowers. Each branch will usually have from one to five flower heads containing 15 to 20 seeds per head. Its shiny oval, spiny-edged leaves alternate around the stem. Seeds are produced in August and are enclosed in a mass of down. Safflower is native to arid environments having seasonal rain. It grows a deep taproot which enables it to thrive in such environments.

    SAFFLOWER USES, HEALTH BENEFITS, & SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE

    MEDICINAL USES

    As a topical, Safflower is used for skin ulcers and wounds. Drinking hot Safflower tea will produce strong perspiration and is used for colds and congestion. The flowers are used to cleanse and heal wounds and sores, and is used to treat measles.

    Conjugated linoleic acid is derived from Safflower and plays an important role in weight management because it reduces body fat while retaining muscle mass. Safflower also helps eliminate lactic acid buildup and post-exercise soreness.

    Preliminary Chinese research suggest the flowers of this plant can reduce the risk of coronary artery disease and lower cholesterol levels.

    Animal studies have shown that Safflower stimulates immune function, but more research is needed before a determination can be made as to its effectiveness in humans.

    TRADITIONAL & CULINARY USES

    Traditionally, Safflower crops were grown for its seeds, and used for coloring and flavoring foods, making red (carthamin) and yellow dyes, especially before cheaper aniline dyes became available. For the last fifty years or so, the plant has been cultivated mainly for the vegetable oil extracted from its seeds.

    SAFFLOWER FLOWERS

    Safflower flowers are edible and occasionally used in cooking as a cheaper substitute for Saffron, and were sometimes referred to as "bastard saffron". Safflower concentrate is an ingredient of the carbonated soft drink Tizer and some types of Sunkist. The leaves of young plants can be eaten as vegetable greens.

    Ancient Egyptians found the flower pleasing to the eye and included it in garlands placed on mummies. Dried Safflower flowers are used in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) to alleviate pain, increase circulation, and reduce bruising. They are included in herbal remedies for menstrual pain and minor physical trauma. In India, the flowers are used for their laxative and diaphoretic properties, and are also used for children's complaints of measles, fevers and eruptive skin conditions. Safflower herbal tea is used to induce sweating and can help relieve colds, coughs and fevers. The flower is also used as an ingredient in lotions, lip balm, shampoos and conditioners.

    In coloring textiles, safflower's dried flowers are used as a natural textile dye and as a dye in cosmetics. The pigment in safflower is the benzoquinone-derived chemical carthamin and it is classified as a quinone-type dye. It is a direct dye which is also known as CI Natural Red 26. Yellow, mustard, khaki, and olive are the most common colors in textiles. Even bright reds and purples can be reached using alkaline processing. Indians used this red dye as their official red tape on legal documents. All hydrophilic fibers (all natural fibers, such as cotton, wool, etc.) may be dyed with this plant. Polyamide textiles can also be dyed without a mordant agent because of its wool-like chemical structure. Polyester, polyacrylonitrile, and others which are hydrophobic synthetic fibers can be dyed only in the presence of a mordant.

    The dried stalks can be used to create fuel or make paper.

    SAFFLOWER SEED

    Safflower seed is used quite commonly as an alternative to Sunflower seed in bird feeders, as squirrels do not like the taste of it.

    Safflower seed oil is flavorless and colorless, and nutritionally similar to Sunflower Oil It is used mainly in cosmetics and as a cooking oil, in salad dressing, and for the production of margarine. It may also be taken as a nutritional supplement.

    SAFFLOWER OIL

    In culinary use, safflower oil compares favorably with other vegetable oils with its high smoke point. It has little flavor to interfere with the taste of other food components. Safflower oil has three qualities that make it a good ingredient for healthy eating: it is an unsaturated fat, it has little taste, and it can be heated to higher temperatures than many other less healthy cooking oils (in its monounsaturated form). While research is still in its early stages, safflower oil shows a lot of potential when it comes to health benefits. Its healthy fatty acid content may be able to help with cholesterol. Try using it instead of butter or other partially hydrogenated oils. Olive oil has many of the same effects. However, safflower oil might be more appealing because it has little flavor and can be heated to higher temperatures than a lot of other cooking oils.

    There are two types of Safflower that produce different kinds of oil. One is high in monounsaturated fatty acid (oleic acid) and the other high in polyunsaturated fatty acid (linoleic acid). Currently the predominant edible oil market is for the former, which is lower in saturates than Olive Oil, for example. The latter is used in painting in the place of Linseed (Flaxseed) Oil, particularly with white paints, as it does not have the yellow tint which linseed oil possesses.


    FRYING FOODS IN SAFFLOWER OIL

    While there really is no such thing as healthy fried food, we all like to endulge occasionally in a favorite fried food. If you crave something deep-fried every now and then, monounsaturated safflower oil is the healthiest oil for the job. It can certainly stand up to the heat. To justify using the quart (or two) of oil necessary for frying, maybe try relatively healthy fry-partners like zucchini or a medley of vegetables in tempura batter. You can use safflower oil to make French fries and sweet potato fries. Just remember those starchy vegetables soak up a lot of oil, so limit your indulgence.

    You might consider "faking" your frying method with recipes like oven-fried chicken and just use enough oil to keep foods from sticking to the baking sheet.

    Use the monounsaturated Safflower oil to cook your eggs, stir-fry dishes, and sautes. It can also be used for baking in any recipe that calls for oil. You can use it as a substitute for butter or shortening in baking. Use 1/3 cup of oil in place of 1/2 cup of the solid fat. The texture may be slightly different, but just remember the good you are doing for your heart.

    Try using polyunsaturated Safflower oil for salad dressings and sauces that can be prepared over low heat. Use it in any recipe in which you want to put oil flavor on the back burner. However, keep in mind that polyunsaturated safflower oil is delicate and can turn rancid quickly. Always store it in a cool dark place or in your refrigerator.

    To sum it up, Safflower oil is a much healthier fat than butter and animal fats. It is every bit as good for you as its popular shelf-mates olive oil and canola oil. It has less flavor than those oils and is generally less expensive. There is a lot to recommend Safflower oil as long as you use it sparingly. Moderation in all things.


    In dietary use, high-linoleic Safflower oil has been shown to increase adiponectin, a protein that helps regulate blood glucose levels and fatty acid breakdown. During a 16 week, double-blind controlled study conducted at the Ohio State University, researchers compared high-linoleic safflower oil (SAF) with Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA). They studied post-menopausal women who had high blood sugar and wanted to lose weight. These participants showed an average reduction of 6.3 percent belly fat and an average of 20.9 percent increase in the important belly fat hormone, adiponectin.

    SAFFLOWER DOSAGE INFORMATION

    SUPPLEMENTS

    Foods are commonly cooked in Safflower oil.

    There are few clinical trials to support a recommended dosage. However 10 grams of oil per day has been used as a placebo. Another clinical trial used nine capsules of Safflower oil per day as a placebo were used to provide 80 calories per day and contained alpha-linoleic acid 800 mg, oleic acid 160 mg, and palmitic acid 100 mg per capsule.

    Transcutaneous Safflower oil of 3 ml four times a day has been administered by massage to neonates. Absorption was demonstrated because the lipid profile of the neonates altered with this method of administration.
