About Us

Founded in 2016, 17Thistles is committed to providing high quality, cold pressed safflower oil that is all natural and non-GMO.

Pure and naturally filtered, 17Thistles safflower oil is made from locally harvested crops; the cold press process preserves the highest qualities in the oil evident in its rich, gold color and mild taste.  


Owners Les Paulson and Larry White have worked in the pulse crop, seed and agriculture business in North Dakota for nearly five decades. Their connections to local growers, knowledge of the land, and oil press process has set the foundation for the 17Thistles brand. 

Our process: sustainable and reliable.

Safflower is one of humanity’s oldest crops. The 17Thistles cold pressing methodology is a traditional technique which gently squeezes the oil from the safflower seeds. All parts of the safflower are used; the meal and waste seed that is the byproduct of pressing is used for supplemental animal and livestock feed for local ranchers.  

Our product: numerous uses and benefits.

17Thistles safflower oil stands up extremely well to high temperature cooking, frying, and sautéing, as well as marinades, vinaigrettes and baking. Some health benefits of safflower oil include its ability to help lower cholesterol levels, manage blood sugar, boost skin health and improve the immune system. Applications beyond cooking include skin and hair healthcare.
