Indispensable to Indian cooking, oil is a basic ingredient that is easily overlooked and escapes the scrutiny it deserves. Ad after ad, consumers are flooded with a range of oils each claiming to be better than the other. They further back these claims with theories of ‘good cholesterol’ and ‘bad cholesterol’, a myth created entirely to trick unaware consumers. It is no surprise that we find ourselves confused and constantly struggling to make the right choice.
A closer survey, however, will make it clear that most oils available in the modern market are mechanically and chemically processed. This is then refined, often adulterated and to make things worse is packaged in plastic containers. What is left behind is oil that is stripped off its essence and nutrients.
Thankfully we have a number of alternatives which are now quickly becoming the new basics. More people are now opting for cold pressed oil and traditional oil mills that don’t use heat or chemical process – a sure shot way of retaining nutrients. Sourcing fresh oil weekly or once a fortnight can go a long way in achieving that healthy lifestyle that we all dream of.

What can we do with the residue left over from the Oil milling process?
The residual is edible and can be processed and consumed. Some examples include Badam-halwa, groundnut chikki, sesame chikki, coconut chiki etc. Else you can always use it as manure or it would also form a good feed for cattle.
How to filter oil if residue doesn’t settle down even after 10-12 hrs?
Sometimes oil you get is not crystal clear because of moisture content in seeds. Oil may require upto 48 hours for settling down the residues. Make sure there is no moisture in seeds, if required a normal roasting can be done so that oil is pure and clear.
If this machine is using heat during the process, it is destroying the nutrients. Why is it claimed as a cold pressed machine?
The original cold pressed machines were made of wood, which is not practical in a commercial model, but this is definitely a lot-lot lesser than Hot-pressed oil which is available in the market and hence they are similar to cold pressed.
