Cold-pressed sunflower oil is extracted from sunflower seeds at low temperatures, usually below 60°C (140°F). Unlike conventional oil extraction methods that involve high heat and chemicals, cold pressing preserves the natural nutrients, flavor, and aroma of the sunflower seeds.

The cold-pressed method involves the following steps:

Seed Cleaning: The sunflower seeds are cleaned to remove any impurities and foreign materials.

Seed Crushing: The cleaned seeds are then mechanically crushed or pressed to extract the oil.

Oil Separation: The oil is separated from the crushed seed solids using various methods like filtration or centrifugation.

Cold-pressed sunflower oil is rich in essential fatty acids, particularly linoleic acid (an omega-6 fatty acid), and contains vitamin E, which acts as an antioxidant. It is a popular choice for cooking, frying, salad dressings, and other culinary uses due to its light flavor and high smoke point.

The nutritional benefits and the absence of chemicals in the extraction process make cold-pressed sunflower oil a healthier alternative to refined sunflower oil. However, it is important to note that even though it's cold-pressed, sunflower oil is still high in calories and should be used in moderation as part of a balanced diet.
