What is Cold-Pressed Oil?

Cold-pressed oil is a method of oil extraction that involves crushing oilseeds at a low temperature without the use of any heat or chemicals. The process preserves the natural flavors, aromas, and nutritional value of the oil, making it a healthier and more wholesome choice compared to conventional refined oils. Tata Simply Better takes pride in producing cold-pressed oils that meet the highest quality standards, offering a pure and natural product for your kitchen.

 

The Cold-Pressing Process

Selecting High-Quality Oilseed

The process of making cold-pressed oil begins with selecting the finest and freshest oilseeds. At Tata Simply Better, only the best-quality seeds are handpicked to ensure optimal taste and nutritional value in the final product.

Cleaning and Sorting

Before the oil extraction begins, the selected oilseeds undergo thorough cleaning and sorting to remove any impurities or foreign particles.

Crushing and Grinding

The cleaned oilseeds are then crushed and ground into a coarse paste using traditional methods like stone grinding or wooden crushers. This step ensures that the oil is extracted efficiently and gently from the seeds.

Oil Extraction

The ground paste is then placed in a hydraulic press, where pressure is applied to extract the oil. Unlike traditional oil extraction methods that involve high heat and chemical processing, the cold-pressing technique maintains a low temperature throughout the process, preserving the natural goodness of the oil.

Filtration

After extraction, the oil is passed through fine filters to remove any remaining solids, ensuring a clear and pure end product.

Benefits of Cold-Pressed Oil

Retains Nutritional Value

Cold-pressed oils retain the essential nutrients, antioxidants, and vitamins present in the oilseeds, making them a healthier choice for your overall well-being.

Rich in Flavour

Unlike refined oils, cold-pressed oils maintain the natural flavor and aroma of the oilseeds, enhancing the taste of your culinary creations.

Zero Chemicals

The absence of heat and chemicals in the extraction process ensures that cold-pressed oils are free from harmful substances, making them safer for consumption.

Supports Heart Health

Cold-pressed oils, such as mustard oil and groundnut oil, are known to promote heart health and reduce bad cholesterol levels.
