Cold-Pressed oils are unrefined cooking oils which are removed by cold pressing methods without the use of harsh chemicals or high temperatures. The result is oil that keeps its great natural flavors and nutrients.

Although pressing produces heat through friction, the temperature must not rise above 120°F (49°C) for any oil to be considered cold pressed.
