Cold pressing is the only method that maintains the organoleptic characteristics of the seeds from which the oil is extracted. Unlike industrial production using chemical solvents, cold pressing uses only mechanical force and therefore preserves the purity of the oil, its natural fruity flavor and its components with high nutritional value, such as polyphenols.
Cold pressing provides a lower quantitative yield, but of an extremely superior quality that allows us to obtain the highest quality oils.
Cold-pressed sunflower oil consists of 32% oleic acid (monounsaturated) and 52% linoleic acid (polyunsaturated), the precursors of omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids, which are important for heart health, for the production of energy, the transport of oxygen, the creation of hemoglobin in the bloodstream and to keep the hormonal system of the body balanced.
A component present in sunflower oil, in quantities five times higher than olive oil, is vitamin E, an excellent antioxidant that helps fight free radicals also responsible for cellular aging. Vitamin E contained in sunflower oil affects the proper functioning of the muscles and is useful for strengthening the immune system.
Sunflower oil is also one of the vegetable oils richest in phenols, substances with preventative properties against degenerative diseases, and magnesium, which helps to balance blood sugar levels, fighting insulin resistance and may therefore have a protective effect against the development of type 2 diabetes.
