oil produced using pure groundnut (peanut) in the method of cold press. It is naturally trans-fat-free, cholesterol
free, and low in saturated fats. It is also a source of vitamin E and
phytosterols, which benefit heart-health.
differentiated From Hot pressed Oil ?
1.The first difference between the two types of oil is the
way they are made. In cold pressing, oil is extracted at room temperature, at
around 27 degrees centigrade, and the acid value is relatively low, so oil
products are obtained after precipitation and filtration. This means that there
is no need for any refinement. Hot pressing involves extracting oil at high
temperatures, and because the acid value rises significantly, it loses most of
its natural quality.
health perspective, cold pressed oil is the clear winner. Hot pressed oils
undergo oxidization, which can cause complications like cancer and
inflammation. Moreover, a lot of healthy compounds are lost from the oils while
hot pressing, whereas in cold pressing, all beneficial compounds are retained.
Another important factor that makes cold pressed oils a better choice is that
it involves no refinement, unlike hot pressed oils which are refined to improve
taste and acidic content.
