Cold pressed oils are obtained naturally by crushing oil seeds at room temperature. In this oil seeds are crushed slowly to extract oil from them naturally. This is done to retain the nutrients and flavours. There is no extra heat and chemicals required, which makes them the healthiest variant of oil available to us. Also, the acid value is relatively low, so oil products are obtained after precipitation and filtration. From being healthier to more nutritious as compared to hot pressed versions, cold pressed oils are widely adopted by people across nations. They also contain antioxidants which are usually absent in hot pressed oil because of their exposure to high heat. Most cold pressed oils are rich in vitamin E, which has anti-inflammatory and oleic acid, which boosts your immunity.
