Nourish Your Body, Enhance Your Cooking with Cold-Pressed Oils

 

When the options are unlimited, we find it difficult to choose the best. The same is true in the case of oils. There are many types of oil available. We have oils extracted from fruits, nuts, and seeds. A few examples have been olive oil, groundnut oil, sesame seed oil, mustard seed oil, coconut oil, and more. We use oil for cooking, and topical application on skin and hair, and few are used to make medicines and in lighting Diya during Pooja.

 

Extraction Process of Oil

The oil needs to be extracted from the seeds, nuts, or fruits. There are commonly 2 types of extraction. One is the extraction using chemicals and the second is the cold-pressed way. The oil extracted using chemicals is then refined for better taste and smell.

In the case of cold-pressed oil, the seeds, fruits, or nuts are pressed to extract oil from it. The process doesn’t undergo heat treatment.

 

Refined or Cold Pressed Oil Better of Two?

The refined oil extracted using chemicals loses out all its nutrients in the oil extraction process. On the other hand, cold-pressed oil is not treated with heat. The oil is pressed out from seeds, fruits, or nuts. Thus the nutritional value is retained. The refined oil undergoes a hydrogenation process and is treated with chemicals. This ensures longer shelf life. However, cold-pressed oil is processed minimally. It is filtered to get rid of suspended particles. Such oil is known as filtered oil. Unfiltered, Filtered oil or unrefined oil retains its original flavor, color, and smell.

Filtered cold press oil has better shelf life compared to unfiltered ones, however, the nutritional value of both are the same.

Cold-pressed oil – things to be noted

Cold-pressed oils are high in polyunsaturated fatty acids; they shouldn’t be used for deep frying. It will degrade the quality of the oil and lessen the aroma and taste. Always use it on low or moderate heat while cooking. This helps to preserve flavor and health.

It is better to switch to using cold-pressed oils rather than refined oils. Cold-pressed oil improves your health and boosts your immune system.

One of the best types of cold-pressed groundnut oil can be sourced from Sattvishtik wellness farms. Groundnut oil is the favorite choice when it comes to cooking. It has a strong aroma and it adds to the flavor of the food.

Sattvishtik farms believe in all things natural. The groundnut oil is extracted using a wooden churner without the application of any heat. The groundnuts are crushed at room temperature and the oil is extracted due to the crushing pressure.

This ensures the nutritional value is intact and the oil is full of flavor and a pleasant aroma. The groundnuts used are of the finest quality from Gujarat and we ensure that it is organically grown. The cold-pressed oil is available in packs of 1, 5, and 15 liters.
