Frequently Asked Questions
Why are God Choice Organic Oils better than refined oils?
Refined oils undergo extensive processing in large refineries, involving steps like degumming, bleaching, and deodorization. These processes, conducted with acids and bleaching agents at temperatures of 200-240°C, strip the oil of its natural colors, flavors, and essential compounds. In contrast, our cold-pressed oils are extracted by pressing and grinding seeds in wooden kolhus at temperatures below 50°C. This meticulous, small-batch process retains the oil's natural flavor, color, vitamins, nutrients, and minerals.
Wood-Pressed Oil or Expeller Oil: Which is 100% Cold-Pressed oil?
Wood-pressed oil, extracted in wooden kolhus, is of superior quality compared to expeller oil. Expeller oil, produced by a mechanical machine with a steel pressing device, exerts high pressure on seeds at elevated temperatures, resulting in lower-quality oil. The wooden kolhus exert lower pressure (below 50°C) on seeds, generating less heat and preserving vitamins and antioxidants in their natural form.
Is your oil organic and residue-free?
Yes, our oil is 100% organic and free from harmful residual chemicals. The organic certification chain remains unbroken from farms to processing facilities and up to the packing unit. We are certified organic by the Rajasthan State Organic Certification Agency under accreditation no. NPOP/NAB/0013.
Does God Choice Oil have more nutrients and vitamins than refined oils?
Absolutely. God Choice cold-pressed oil contains more nutrients and vitamins compared to refined oils. Our oil is unrefined, unbleached, single-filtered, and extracted at low temperatures, preserving its nutritional value. In contrast, refined oils are treated with chemicals and acids at very high temperatures, leading to a loss of essential nutrients.
