Sunflowers in the Morning Sun

Sunflowers in the Morning Sun

In between Alice and McAllen, Texas there are miles and miles of giant sunflowers used to make sunflower oil. I was coming back from a work assignment but had my camera and tripod with me. I stepped into the field and sunk ankle deep in mud with my Luchesse boots! Undeterred I got this shot.

Sunflower oil production has been on a sharp rise since 1960, and is fast becoming a replacement for other oils in the United States. Among the polyunsaturated vegetable oils, sunflower oil and the related safflower oil are better for human consumption than either corn or soybean oil because there are more double bonds present in each triglyceride molecule. Sunflower oil is a semi-drying oil, and is better for paints because it is very low in linolenic acid, but, of course, that is becoming less important economically while the world produces instead mostly latex paints and other polymers. As a salad oil, it is tasteless and equal in quality to olive oil, which is mostly composed of saturated oils; however, researchers have discovered that olive oil has some healthful properties.

Oil is stored in the cotyledons of the sunflower embryo, found within a fruit called an achene. An achene is a one-seeded, dry indehiscent fruit in which the seed coat is not fused tightly to the fruit wall. Therefore, when you shake a sunflower "seed," you are actually shaking the lose seed inside of a fruit wall, the pericarp. The seed has up to 50% oil by weight, and, like soybean, the embryo is fairly nutritious for other dietary needs. Sunflower oil is expressed under pressure and with steam, and after oil is expressed from the embryo the remaining solids are formed into seedcake for livestock feed. This livestock feed is high in protein but good mostly for ruminants because it lacks sufficient quantities of the amino acid lysine. Embryos can be ground into an oily flour, which is tasty when mixed with wheat flour. Experiments have shown that the hulls (pericarps) of sunflower can be pressed into logs for the fireplace and cooking stoves. Whole achenes are important ingredients of bird and rodent feeds, and shelled and unshelled sunflower achenes, salted or unsalted, are a healthy and popular snack.

Sept 2005

Nebo Loop near Black Hawk Campground, Sept 9th 2005. I was three weeks post-op when this photo was taken and I've lost 30.6 pounds total since surgery! Not feeling very well spoils the news of my weight loss. Just a few days after this photo was taken I was on IV therapy for two weeks for dehydration, I was vomitting everything I ate, was put on an all liquid diet of protein shakes and still not doing well. On September 22, due to all the complications I've been having we decided to go back to Cottonwood for an edoscopy to be dialated with the hope that the vomitting and nausea will stop. A week after the procedure I was feeling much better physically but the depression was severe. I remained on liquids and soft solid diet until sometime in December.
