COLD EXTRACTED | PRESSED OLIVE OIL
Your Ellora Farms Extra Virgin Olive Oils are cold extracted (better than pressed) with the flesh and pit of the olive separated from the oil by gravity. Olive oil that’s first cold extracted maintains the most antioxidants and therefore it offers the greatest health benefits to you. First cold pressed – cold extraction. Many oils are marketed as first cold pressed or cold extraction. "Cold" refers to the fact that no heat is added during extraction. "Pressed" refers to the concept that the olives are crushed in a mill to extract the oil. In today’s world the word Cold Press is obsolete as it is not longer the method of choice which was used centuries ago.
