TORONTO, April 13, 2021 /PRNewswire/ - Oils are a staple ingredient in any kitchen. Whether it is for cooking or as an edible finisher, oil is an ingredient that gives its taste and wonderful aroma to our foods. The oil pressing technique – also known as cold pressing – can be quite fascinating. Starting with a large machine to either grind or press the seeds or fruits, it squeezes the oils using traditional methods that have evolved over time. Once the oil is pressed (separated from the seed), the oil is then filtered and packaged for consumption.
This technique is the most popular because it is alleged to retain the oils natural properties such as purity and flavour. While the so-called 'cold pressing' technique is thought to have no heat, the challenge is that cold pressing technology does generate heat with the 'in process' grinding and sheering, and damage to the antioxidants, vitamins and minerals can be a result. With everyone becoming more health conscious with the pandemic, therapeutic seed oils and what they offer to our wellness have become more important. Therefore, how an oil is made has become more critical.
Taking this into consideration – some 8 years before it even became trendy – Canadian company, Activation Products, launched its Perfect Press® oil collection. Their perfectly pressed technique extracts every drop of oil out of each seed without causing any damage to the fatty acid chains. This results in beautifully lightweight oils retaining 100% of their nutritional potency.
