Types of safflower from India which produce an oil with low iodine value (80-90) differ by a single gene from those grown commercially, where the iodine value is about 140. The oil with low iodine value actually resembles olive oil, and would be unsuitable in the manufacture of paints and other coatings. Also, for present uses of safflower in food products, the iodine value should be high.
