The Manufacturing Process: The method of extracting oil makes all the difference in its quality and flavour. The extraction process of wooden cold-pressed oils involves crushing oil-bearing nuts or seeds under the lowest rotation per minute (RPM) which helps emit lesser heat and retains the quality and taste of the nuts or seeds. Generally, the seeds are placed in huge Wooden Kolhus where they are continuously rotated and crushed until all the oil is collected. Since the process is undertaken in a wooden container, the heat generated is less than 40 degrees. Also, wood helps to absorb the heat so cold-pressed oils retain their original flavour, taste, aroma, and nutritional value. On the contrary, regular refined oils are extracted by using high temperatures like more than 300 degrees, and are treated with chemical solvents that degrade their flavour, taste, and nutritional composition.
