Why Pine Nut Oil must be Cold Pressed, Extra Virgin and Raw

The same product can be a “cure for 100 diseases” or a waste of money, and in some cases even harm. It all depends on the production methods.

Siberian Pine Nut Oil is the best choice for those who care about their health. It’s not only about the natural benefits of pine nuts collected in ecologically clean areas of the distant Siberian taiga, but also about how we make the oil from this wonderful raw material. Siberian Pine Nut Oil is cold pressed, extra virgin, and raw. Let’s take a look at why this is so important and compare Siberian Pine Nut Oil to less healthy products.

Cold Pressed vs Hot Pressed

During the hot pressing process, many of the health benefits of the nuts are lost as the nutrients are destroyed by heat. Raw materials are processed mechanically and thermally, and water is often added to it to prevent the nuts from burning. The result is an useless product, in which not even one tenth of the original healing power of pine nuts is left.

Cold pressing is the most expensive way to produce the oil, as less oil is extracted from cold raw materials. For this reason, some manufacturers prefer the hot pressing method, because they can use less raw materials and offer customers a cheaper product.

However, only cold pressing ensures the maximum preservation of the beneficial properties of pine nuts. With this method of production, nuts are not processed, not mixed with water or chemicals, and not roasted. The temperature caused by the pressure at the moment of pressing does not exceed room temperature. As a result, the oil contains all the vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, and amino acids from the nuts, and does not contain any impurities. Siberian Pine Nut Oil is produced in the traditional way: cold pressed on wooden presses.

Extra Virgin vs Virgin or Refined

Any vegetable oil has a certain gradation of quality, the highest degree of which is Extra Virgin. This classification was originally created for olive oil, but is applicable to any oil produced from vegetable raw materials, including cedar nuts.

What does extra virgin mean? It is first pressed oil produced only from selected raw materials by cold pressing. This means that all the nuts for this oil are hand-selected. Only fresh whole and white nuts are pressed, not pink or yellow.

 In addition, the oil does not go through additional stages of purification (refining) to remove taste or odor, and is not treated with chemical reagents.

Extra virgin Siberian Pine Nut Oil retains all the beneficial trace elements found in pine nuts. 

Raw vs Processed

Processed food is any product that has undergone various processing: from thermal to chemical. Such food is less natural for the human body, which means that it can cause various allergic reactions and problems with the gastrointestinal tract. People who eat processed food are more likely to experience heartburn and a feeling of heaviness in the stomach, as it is more difficult for the body to digest such products.

Raw products are the most natural and easily digestible food. This is exactly what Siberian Pine Nut Oil produced by our company is. The oil of our production did not undergo heat treatment, retaining all the valuable nutrients. It is easily absorbed by the gastrointestinal tract and is suitable even for those who follow a raw food diet.

So why Pine Nut Oil must be Cold Pressed, Extra Virgin, and Raw? Because only such oil retains all the natural benefits of pine nuts and is easily absorbed by the body.

We wish you and your loved ones good Siberian health and longevity!
