Cooking oil has been an essential ingredient since time immemorial and has been an essential element and has had a significant function to play. Oil is commonly used in all cuisines and types of dishes. Cooking oil is just as beneficial when used in moderation as everything else. Picking the right type of oil is essential because it affects your cardiovascular health. As the trend towards a healthy lifestyle increases, people are turning to cold-pressed oils, avoiding regular or refined oils in order to maintain healthy oils.

Their cold-pressed oils are healthy because they preserve the majority of their original nutrients.
Let us learn the differences that lie between cold-pressed and hot-pressed oils.
The flavour and quality of the oil are significantly influenced by the method employed to extract it. Cold-pressed oils are produced without the use of heat or chemicals, preserving their nutritional value and benefits. Pressing oil-containing nuts or seeds under pressure is how cold-pressed oils are made. In the case of hot pressed oils, The seeds are heated or treated with chemicals during the manufacturing of hot pressed oil. Due to their low oil content, some seeds, like sesame seeds, require heat pressing. Additionally, after being heated to a high temperature, raw oil becomes rather dark and its acid value increases, and only after refining can it be consumed.
The seeds are heated or treated with chemicals during the manufacturing of hot pressed oil. Due to their low oil content, some seeds, like sesame seeds, require heat pressing. Additionally, after being heated to a high temperature, raw oil becomes rather dark and its acid value increases. Therefore, refined oil is the only kind that can be consumed after refining. While processing hot pressed oils, they are treated with chemicals such as acetic acid, hexane, and bleaching soda, and as a result, all of the nutrients are destroyed. Therefore, cold-pressed oils are safer to consume as they also protect cardiovascular health. All the oils from the house of Purti are prepared in the cold-pressed technique, thus making them the safest and healthiest option to choose.
Anything prepared using cold-pressed oil needs to be cooked at a low to medium temperature because it has a lower smoking point and doesn’t foam or sizzle during cooking. On the other hand, due to their high smoke point, hot pressed oils can be used to prepare food that needs to be cooked at a high temperature.
Organically produced cold-pressed oils are without filtration and without the use of chemicals, and have a limited shelf life and low yield. Hot-pressed oils are treated with chemicals and undergo a hydrogenation process to extend shelf life and increase potential yields. This is the primary reason why hot pressed oils are cheaper than cold pressed ones. Purti oils do not compromise the quality of the oil they provide. As such, these oils are not only rich in nutrients; they are also a healthy choice for cooking.
Although switching from regular oil to cold-pressed oil might be challenging and expensive, the effects on your health and wellbeing are immense. You have a variety of options to make a healthy move with Purti’s cold-pressed oils, including their Kacchi Ghani mustard oil, rice bran oil, sunflower oil, and soybean oil.
