Smude’s Sunflower Oils
Smude’s Infused Sunflower Oils have joined our oil section at Valley Natural Foods. Smude’s is a family owned and operated enterprise and their products are made in Minnesota! The Smude family farm is located in Pierz, MN where they farm 150 acres of sunflowers, which you can even go tour!
All their infused oils are non-gmo and are great for dipping and cooking, and can be used as a marinade, or salad dressing. We now carry the following flavors:
- Garlic Pepper
- Tomato Basil
- Hot Fiery Pepper
If you’re a fan of spicy foods and are very brave enough you can try their Hot Fiery Pepper infused oil. This oil is infused with Trinidad Moruga, Scorpion Peppers, Crushed Red Pepper and Chile Peppers! I tried this oil and it actually brought tears to my eyes! So sample carefully, you have been warned.
