How is 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.

2.From a 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.
