Extraction by industrial methods, involves various processes like bleaching, steaming, distillation and hydrogenation - the seeds are exposed to extremely high temperatures to get clear bland oil and chemicals like phosphoric acid, calcium hypo chlorite are added to increase the shelf life of the product which in turn affects not only the flavor and aroma but also strips the oil of all its nutritive values. The more refined an oil is the less nourishing it will be for our bodies. Before refined oils we were traditionally using cold pressed oils- in our local terms, Chekku ennai/Ghani tel”.
