BENEFITS OF COLD PRESS VS. CHEMICALLY EXTRACTED OILS
While all plant based oils may be cholesterol free, commercial oils go through several processes to prevent it from going rancid. Refined oils are de-gummed, de-pigmented, and deodorized then chemically preserved. In the process refined oils become colorless, odorless and almost devoid of all nutrients. The nasty process refined oils go through destroys healthy antioxidants and form hazardous free radicals.
Cold Pressed Oils are the least processed and most natural.
Cold pressed oils are mechanically pressed with a screw press. They are then filtered down to 1 micron, to ensure a beautifully clean oil.
Cold Pressed Oils retain the flavor, aroma, and nutritional value of the seed from which they where pressed.
Refined Oils are chemically extracted and carry almost no taste and nutritional value. Refined oils are full of free radicals (AND WHO WANTS THAT!).
Refined Vegetable Oils are so heavily processed that they are no longer considered a good source of essential fatty acids.
