Cold pressing refers to oils obtained through pressing fruit or seeds with a modern steel press.
Although pressing produces heat through friction, the oil seeds are not precooked and consequently the oil is considered cold pressed – in contrast to large scale solvent extraction and refining operations which strip the oil of natural antioxidants, vitamins and flavour. The solvent extraction method is used to produce most common cooking oils found in supermarkets.
Cold pressed oils retain all of their flavour, aroma, and nutritional value, making these oils great for all cooking and skin care requirements. They contain zero grams of trans fatty acids and are naturally cholesterol-free.
Cold Pressed Oils will provide a vital contribution to your healthier life:
- They are cholesterol free
- They are not refined, deodorized or processed in any way
- They do not contain harmful solvent residues
- Our Cold Pressed Oil contains no added chemicals or preservatives
- They contain natural antioxidants such as tocopherols (e.g. Vitamin E) and phosphatides (e.g. Lecithin)
Its addition to the bread adds natural vitamins and minerals and helps to retain the softness and moistness of your bread.
Oil your Simply No Knead bread tins before every use:
Our cold pressed sunflower oil is a non-viscous oil that does not get sticky when heated- unlike many oils like olive, grapeseed, coconut, rice bran – therefore we recommend and use the sunflower oil on our bread tins as well as a key ingredient in our bread recipes.
