What does cold pressing mean?
"Cold pressing" assumes that no external heat is added. When we cold-press oils, the temperature is monitored and we ensure that no high temperatures are reached. We can therefore guarantee that the quality of the oil is not impaired.
What does "virgin" mean in the context of oils?
A virgin oil is a cooking oil which is obtained exclusively using mechanical processes without preheating the raw materials. It is not subjected to chemical or thermal treatment or to any other refinement process and thus preserves its authentic, natural taste and the essential components of the raw material. This also makes it suitable for eating raw.
