Why are cold-pressed oils better?
Updated: Jan 16, 2018
Our oils are made by pressing the fresh beans, seeds or nuts; there is no heat involved. Thus, the term cold-pressed. With no heat, there is lower risk of degrading the oil.The seeds are dropped inside a cylinder that contains a rotating screw. This screw grinds and crushes the seeds until the oil is extracted. There are small holes in the bottom of the cylinder that will allow the oil to escape into a container for collection. Occasionally small amounts of heat is generated through friction as the screws begin to break down the seeds, it’s definitely not enough heat to damage the oil. Its been noted that higher amount of antioxidants are found in cold-pressed oil. We want you to have the best of the best!
