One of the most prominent oils among health food aficionados in today's time are the different ranges of cold pressed oils. These cold pressed oils are made by grinding nuts and seeds into a fine paste. Then an oil stone or other natural methods are used to press the paste from which the oil separates. This oil extraction process is a natural way to retain healthy antioxidants in the oil that are otherwise damaged by refining methods.
On the contrary, the other variants of oil such as the hot pressed oils undergo various processes like oxidation, bleaching, steaming, distillation and hydrogenation wherein the seeds are exposed to extremely high temperatures to get clear bland oil. These oils are infused with chemicals to increase the shelf life which in turn affects the flavor, aroma and strips the oil of all its nutritive values. As we know highly refined oils are less nourishing for human consumption, we soon aimed at starting our own range of cold pressed oils which are extra virgin in grade. Extra Virgin refers to the process wherein the oil hasn’t gone through any extreme heat conditions, is chemical free in nature and has no odour. Thus high quality compared to regular oils and is ideal for cooking and salad dressing.
