Seed Oils

Cold pressing is a traditional and natural way to produce oil. Seed oils are extracted without the use of chemicals or solvents at temperatures below 40°C which ensures that the full essence and character of the oil is preserved. Processing at low temperatures helps to produce low peroxide values (PV). The oil’s natural colors and fragrances are preserved and all essentials nutrients, antioxidants, healthy fatty acids and vitamins, such as A, B, C, and E are retained in the cold-pressed oils. Once the oil has settled, it is filtered to guarantee its purity.

Benefits of Seed Oils

A high level of unsaturated fatty acids: depending on the oil, this fraction can contain up to 85% polyunsaturated fatty acids.

A high concentration of Omega 6 and Omega 3 with strong anti-inflammatory properties. These two fatty acids are essential fatty acids that cannot be synthesized within the human body.

Rich in vitamin E (tocopheroles) and phytosteroles. These micronutrients bring health benefits including reducing cardiovascular diseases and aging disorders.

Contain significant levels of antioxidants and serve as dietary sources of natural antioxidants for disease prevention and health promotion.

Skin can very easily absorb these oils as their viscosity is low. Furthermore, their high level of alpha-linolenic acid has an anti-inflammatory effect.

Pharmaceutical industry

  • As food supplements, they are primarily used – either pure, or mixed with other components – for their unique fatty acid profile and their relatively high concentrations of minor components, such as phytosteroles and tocopheroles. The oils are easy to put into doses in soft gels or capsules. They can also be taken in liquid form.
