Cold pressing is a traditional and natural way to produce oil. Seed oils are extracted without the use of chemicals or solvents at temperatures below 40°C which ensures that the full essence and character of the oil is preserved. Processing at low temperatures helps to produce low peroxide values (PV). The oil’s natural colors and fragrances are preserved and all essentials nutrients, antioxidants, healthy fatty acids and vitamins, such as A, B, C, and E are retained in the cold-pressed oils. Once the oil has settled, it is filtered to guarantee its purity.
Benefits of Seed Oils
Applications of Seed Oils
- Without exception, all our products are used in the food industry. Pura Agro’s range of products offers all it takes to fit any modern health-conscious lifestyle. Because of our oils’ pleasant taste and smell and high smoke point they are perfect for salads and cold recipe, for preparing meals in deep fryer or a pan.
- Our oils have natural moisturizing properties from mono-unsaturated and poly-unsaturated fatty acids making them a wonderful moisturizer for the skin. Skin can very easily absorb these oils as their viscosity is low. Furthermore, their high level of alpha-linolenic acid has an anti-inflammatory effect.
- As food supplements, they are primarily used – either pure, or mixed with other components – for their unique fatty acid profile and their relatively high concentrations of minor components, such as phytosteroles and tocopheroles. The oils are easy to put into doses in soft gels or capsules. They can also be taken in liquid form.
