What is cold pressed oil?
Cold pressed oil is a product made by pressing oleaginous seeds without using heat. Heat increases the quantity of product obtained during the process but reduces the quantity and quality of vitamins, nutrients and minerals, altering the natural flavour and causing organoleptic modifications. The technology we use also helps to preserve the natural taste of the seeds.
Cold pressed oil = Health Advantage
As well as being used in cooking, cold pressed oils can be used in the pharmaceutical or beauty industry, as well as natural medicine, thanks to their higher quantity of vitamins A, B, D, E, F, K, antioxidants (omega 3,6,9 ), zinc, magnesium, iron, fluorine, iodine, potassium, calcium, copper, manganese, sodium, phosphorus and selenium. Cold pressed oils can help in preventing or treating colon cancer or breast cancer (flax seed oil), prostate problems (pumpkin seed oil), nervous system problems (sunflower oil and flax seed oil).
