Safflower, Carthamus tinctorius, is a highly branched, herbaceous, thistle-like annual plant. It is commercially cultivated for vegetable oil extracted from the seeds and was used by the early Spanish colonies along the Rio Grande as a substitute for saffron.
Safflower oil is a rich source of unsaturated fatty acids, which are often called “good fats.” It's every bit as healthy as olive oil and canola oil. But it has less flavor than those alternatives and is often less expensive.
