Cold Pressed Method

Cold Pressed Method


The 
cold pressing method is a method to extract oils from the seeds of plants and their fruits. It refers to juice that uses a hydraulic press to extract juice from fruit and vegetables, as opposed to other methods such as centrifugal or single auger. It also known as Scarification or Expression.

Cold pressed has healthy antioxidants that are otherwise damaged by being exposed to heat. Most cold pressed oils are rich in vitamin E, which has anti-inflammatory and healing properties. Cold pressed juice protects and preserves the nutrients of the fruits and vegetables.

The extraction choice for oils depends on the type of source material and the final destination for the oils. The advantage of cold pressing oil is usually higher quality. It can be more difficult to cold press some types of seeds and nuts. If more volume is required, turning to his heat press technique will increase the yield. But, heat pressed oil often lacks color and some of the higher quality attributes. Cold pressed oils retain all their flavor, aroma, and nutritional value, making these oils great for cooking and skin care requirements. They contain zero grams of trans fatty acids and are naturally cholesterol-free.

Cold-pressed oil is primary used for cooking. Cold-pressed cooking oil offers a richer flavor, it can be tricky to cook with. Olive, sesame, sunflower, canola and coconut oil can all be extracted using cold-pressed methods and used for flavor in marinades, salad dressings and baked goods.
