An enhanced form of safflower oil promises health benefits for consumers and new markets for safflower growers. An agricultural biotechnology firm in Davis has finalized an agreement with a Northern California seed cooperative, to develop the new safflower variety. It contains added levels of an omega-6 fatty acid. The acid, known as G-L-A, naturally battles inflammation and can benefit the heart, joints, skin and neurological system.
