Resaca Sun Products

Resaca Sun Products began producing Non-GMO, kosher, and food grade canola, soybean and sunflower oils in 2006. Non-GMO Project Verified, all seeds are sourced from farmers in local regions of Georgia, Tennessee and Alabama, ensuring you receive the most transparent and identity preserved products - always.  

Canola Meal & Oil

Using traditional plant breeding methods, Canadian scientists have been able to remove euric acid and glucosinolates with technology which have made canola meal a top protein source used in animal feed.  All of the processed Non-GMO canola is sourced from farmers in local regions of Georgia, Tennessee and Alabama.  Canola meal and oil offer a broad spectrum of benefits.  Studies show that diets with canola meal and oil led to increased milk production, which resulted in lower milk urea nitrogen (MUN) than other diets; lower blood cholesterol; a higher levels of omega-3's and omega-6's, which help reduce the risk of heart attacks and strokes and improve brain growth and development in infants respectively, and many more nutritional benefits.  We value quality, which is why all commodities that make up Resaca Sun Products are Non-GMO.

Soybean Meal & Oil

Compared to using other protein sources, soybeans are tested to have a much higher protein content than that of many other common commodities.  Soybean meal and oil is also a highly digestible protein source commonly used in animal feed. Not only does it serve as an important source of amino acids, but it also provides more extensive nutritional value by contributing energy, minerals and vitamins. We value quality, which is why all commodities that make up Resaca Sun Products are Non-GMO.

Sunflower Meal & Oil

Sunflower meal and oil is also another wonderful source of nutritional value. With many vitamins and minerals packed within one kernel, it is considered to be a powerhouse of nutrition.  Sunflower meal and oil is packed with vitamin E.  Compared to other seeds and nuts, sunflowers are considered to be the highest nutritional source of vitamin E, Selenium, and Folate.  Studies have been shown that beef cows need supplemental protein from sunflower meal to enhance forage intake and digestibility. Unlike other species, ruminants can utilize sunflower meal’s high level of fiber more effectively. We value quality, which is why all commodities that make up Resaca Sun Products are Non-GMO.

Expeller Press

To produce our high quality non-GMO oils and meals, Resaca Sun Products uses a Anderson expeller press.  The process of extraction begins with cracking the hull of the seed and applying one of the extraction processes.There are two main types of oil extraction, chemical solvent extraction and expeller press extraction.  The chemical solvent method is the most popular, but uses the poisonous chemical hexane.  After the oil and meal is separated, the oil is heated to a high temperature (flashed) to remove the hexane.  This high temperatures can ruin the oil if not careful.  Luckily, Resaca Sun Products produces their oil through the expeller press method.  Expeller pressed extraction has been performed for many centuries.  By using this method, friction and heavy pressure is applied to the seeds until the oil begins to seep out of the small openings, separating the oil from the seed fibers.  The expeller is then tightened until it crushes the seed, causing the oil to be collected.  No solvents are used during the expeller process resulting in a cleaner, more pure oil.  By using the expeller pressed method at Resaca Sun Products, we are able to provide our customers the highest quality non-GMO oils and meals.
