WHAT IS WOOD COLD PRESSED OIL?
Traditional “chekku” consist of a fixed stone bottom and the pestle is made up of a special wood called “vagai”. In traditional wood chekku, the seeds are crushed with a wooden pestle. This technique is called cold pressing the oil out of the seed which does not involve the generation of heat.
Hence, room temperature is maintained and it can be achieved only if traditional wooden churner is used and extracted by a slow mechanical process. Since the oil is not heated, it retains all the natural micronutrients, vitamins, flavor, color and texture.
