Oils for every mood

OILS FOR EVERY MOOD
Team Wellbe

Have you been wondering what the fuss around cold-pressed oils is all about? First up, cold-pressing is to do with the way the oil is extracted from the seeds. In conventional oils, high temperatures/steam and chemicals are used to extract the oil from the oilseeds. In cold-pressing, the oil is extracted with minimal heat, with hardly any processing, with the seeds usually crushed in a  wooden or stone press.

So why is it good for you? The primary reason is the absence of high temperatures means the oil does not lose any of its nutritive values. 

  • Less energy is used to extract the oil making the process environmentally friendly
  • Completely unprocessed – no solvents like hexane, chemicals or preservative are used
  • No pesticides
  • Rich in Vitamin E and other essential nutrients needed for our well being
  • No trans fat
  • Rich in natural flavour and aroma
  • As it is manually filtered, it is more viscous as compared to conventional oils, therefore consumption is lower (around 20%)
