It is rightly advised by the
elders not to reuse the cooking oil for the reason that there will be loss of
nutrients due to reheating. In short, the cooking oil when reheated losses all
the nutrients and its advantages for good health. Hence Cold Pressed Cooking
Historically our ancestors use to
extract oil from coconut, groundnut, sesame etc.,taking immense care so that
the temperature of the oil during extraction does not rise 5 to 10 degree more
than the ambient temperature. Greed and commercial mind set brought the change
in the method of extracting the oil introducing excess heat by way of steam. Oil
cells in the oil seed swells when the steam is introduced leading to high
output of oil in comparison to Cold
Pressed traditional Method. In this method oil is extracted In low temperatures
and output is much lower than the non-traditional – commercial method.
Cold Pressed cooking oils are always rich in nutrients,
natural goodness, flavour, aroma and contains high medicinal values which
supports good health. It is always recommended to use the oil used by our
forefathers and not to get carried away to colourful advertisements by multinational
companies who produce refined oils.
