COLD PRESSED OILS


Cold Pressed Oils

Cold pressed oils are oils in which the oil seeds are crushed slowly to extract oil from them naturally. This is done to retain the nutrients and flavours. As the acid value remains low there is no need for refinement.

In hot pressed oils or refined oils, the oil is extracted by using high heat and possibly chemical solvents. Due to chemicals and heat, most of the nutrients and flavours are lost. Also, they become highly acidic while hot pressing and so they have to be refined to become fit for consumption. 

Always go for cold pressed oils for their immense health benefits. These oils can also be used as Carrier oils to dilute essential oils.
