Benefits Of Organic Cold-pressed Oils
- Unprocessed - No added preservatives and chemicals
- Absolutely free of pesticides (which are arguably carcinogenic)
- High in Vitamin E and micro nutrients that are vital for our holistic well-being.
- Completely free from Trans-fat.
- As it is manually filtered, it is more viscous and retains the flavour fully. This helps in lesser consumption (atleast by 20%) of oil as compared to the industrially processed refined oil.
Every oil has its own nutrient profile - as different varieties offer different benefits and possess key role to play in terms of health. The best way to derive the benefits is to use combination of oils depending on the foods that is consumed

Coconut oil – Cold pressed coconut oil retains cocositol, (a naturally occurring plant alcohol found in abundant quantities in coconut) to a significantly greater extent when compared to the industrial method. Cocositol blocks the development of amyloid-beta plaques in the brain. (The formation of these a-beta plaques is one of the key causes of memory deficiency and Alzheimer’s disease). Cocositol is helpful in generation of new neuron cells as well. Hence it is quite beneficial for people with neurological diseases like Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s.
