Cooking oil forms an integral part of Indian dishes. We are exposed to a variety of edible oils each asserting a whole lot of health claims.The right selection of edible oil is essential, especially in the Indian context where cooking methods are different from that of the rest of the world.
Let us understand the basic difference between cold-pressed oils and regular oils on the basis of the manufacturing process, nutritional value, shelf-life, and cooking method.
Regular oils are hydrogenated and treated with harmful chemicals to extend their shelf life and yield. Furthermore, cold-pressed oils have a shorter shelf-life and lower yield because they are unfiltered and minimally processed.
Cold-pressed oils are suitable for food prepared in medium to low heat due to their low smoking points whereas hot-pressed oils are preferred for preparing meals at high temperatures due to their high smoking points.
Making a switch from regular oil to cold-pressed oil can make a big difference to your health and well-being. Cold pressed oils from VEYR can be used for a variety of foods in cooked and raw form.
