Oils are an inevitable part of Indian cooking, and choosing the right oil is the key to healthy cooking. With the growing awareness about the importance of healthy fats, there has been a positive change in the popularity of wood-pressed oils. Wood-pressed sesame oil is a great option for switching to healthy cooking. Rich in healthy fats, wood-pressed sesame oil lends a nutty flavour and aroma to food. Also known as Nallennai in Tamil meaning “good oil,” sesame oil has been a common ingredient in kitchens for years, not only because it enhances the taste of food but also due to its medicinal properties.


What is wood-pressed oil?


The popular term wood-pressed these days is a familiar one, but there is more knowledge that must be gathered about what exactly is meant by the wood-pressed method of extracting oils from vegetable seeds. Wood-pressed oils are produced using a wood pestle that presses and crushes the seeds to extract the oil, as the name implies. The most important thing to remember about the wood pressing technique is that it uses a wooden pestle and collector to press and collect the oil. Everything is done at a low temperature to keep the overall process temperature below 40 degrees. Any temperature increase is absorbed by the wooden pestle, which does not generate heat through friction. As wood-pressed oils are heat- and chemical-free, they retain most of their nutrients, like vitamins A, C, and E, as well as antioxidants.
