How do you check the quality of sunflower oil when you buy it?

To use the following method, you need to take a bottle of oil, turn it upside down and shake it slightly. If you notice small bubbles, it is an indication that the product is of good quality and you can safely buy it. If the oil remains homogeneous and does not change the consistency in any way when you shake it, then most likely you have a fake product in front of you.

How do you check the quality of sunflower oil at home?

If you happen to buy a product without checking it in the store, you can do it at home.

Method 1

For the first method, you will need salt. Try to dissolve it in 50 ml of vegetable oil, be sure to stir the mass well. If the salt dissolves easily in the oil, it means that the product contains an excess of water. If the oil is of good quality and without impurities - the salt will not dissolve in it.
