Our Oils are extra cold-pressed using a specially designed, low pressure screw press to extract the oils with as little heat as possible. The less pressure and heat we use the lower the oil yield but the higher the oil quality.

Fresh Weekly Pressing
Ostro Organics Oils are pressed fresh on a weekly basis. We do not carry a huge inventory, we rather press fresh to order. This ensures pure oils rich in naturally occurring nutrients.
More About Us
Ostro Organics Cold Pressed Oils meet the highest standards in quality. When consuming oils for their Omega 3 or 6 we recommend to do so within six months of purchasing. Unprocessed foods will deteriorate over time. The nutritional count in the oil will deteriorate over time. Therefore consume fresh and store refrigerated.
Vegetarian & Vegan
Ostro Organics products do not contain any meat or any animal-derived ingredients. These cold-pressed oils and vegan nut and seed butters pair well with an array of dishes. Our recipes are directed to a large range of diets and those with various food allergies and intolerance. Any food restrictions can be easily accommodated.
Gluten Free & Dairy Free Facility
Ostro Organics is operating a gluten free and dairy free facility. Focusing on minimizing risk of contamination and cross contamination of allergens such as tree nuts and sesame.
Peanut Free Facility
Ostro Organics operates a peanut free facility. We do not sublease or share any storage space or parts of our production facility. Furthermore focusing in reducing risk of contamination and cross contamination. Ostro Organics offers various nut oils and nut products, pressed on separate days and separate equipment.
Our raw nuts and seeds are of highest snacking quality and untreated, unpasteurized and not bleached. In fact, our seeds are sourced, stored and air dried respectfully to keep the seeds ability to germinate intact. Regular germination tests are being conducted before the raw seeds are being pressed. These germination tests can tell a lot about the quality and age of seeds.
When seeds germinate, they grow sprouts, so sprouting and germinating are the same thing. However we do not sprout our seeds before pressing as this would diminish the oil quality.
Not Filtered & Unrefined
Our extra cold-pressed oils are crafted with the utmost care and precision. Any unnecessary processing steps like mechanical filtration are avoided. Instead we let the oil settle naturally thru gravity in our stainless steel barrels resulting in the oil sludge settling on the bottom of the barrel. Then the pure oil can carefully be decanted into the various bottles.
Our fresh oils are typically consumed within six month of purchasing and are not meant for deep-frying. As such, our extra cold-pressed oils are not being refined or chemically treated.
Our fresh, extra cold-pressed oils maintain their naturally occurring flavours, scents and colors. Unlike roasted oils, our pure oils do not have strong roasting or burning aromas.
Ostro Organics fast expanding line of flavoured oils offers a range of strong, potent flavours useful in every kitchen.

Buy Freshly Pressed
Look when the oil was pressed. In doubt, contact the oil mill and ask. If the oil-mill is not listed on the label, be cautions and look for an alternative.
Filtration systems have advanced so much, that most of the trace elements are removed of the oils. This processing step makes oils last much longer and increases the heat point, big looser in this process are the nutrients. Therefore put emphasis on finding cold-pressed oils that are not mechanically filtered and unrefined!
Buy Unrefined as as little processed cold-pressed oils as possible. The more processed the oils are, the less nutrients are naturally left in the oil.
Buy RAW When Possible
Most Pumpkin Seed Oils, although cold-pressed, are first roasted, toasted and boiled. This relieves a dark green color and nutty flavour. Great for culinary uses, not so great when looking at the nutritional profile. Cold-Pressed and raw oils contain more of the nutrients.
Buy Certified Organic
Certified Organic is important in foods that you consume with your health in mind. Many cleaning detergents that are used in conventional processing facilities are banned in the organic processing environment. Also, organic farming when done right is also a more sustainable way of agriculture ensuring the fertility of land for future generations.
Buy From an Oil Mill You can Trust
Look for an oil mill in your neighborhood. Support the family-owned oil-mills that are left. Ostro Organics Oil-Mill is located in Victoria B.C. Canada and we love to supply you with the highest quality, certified organic oils. If we find an oil mill in your area that produces similar high quality cold-pressed oils, we will let you know!
There are a lot of different methods of extracting oil for the culinary use. Most extraction methods contain excessive heat, pressure and solvents.
At Ostro Organics we use cylindrical presses to extract cold pressed organic oils. This technique allows us to press kernels, seeds and nuts without previously heating or roasting them. This has the great advantage of extracting actually cold oil without losing valuable nutrients.
The heat generated by pressure does not succeed 35° Celsius. That way we can retain wholesome ingredients such as vitamins, essential fatty acids, lecithin, enzymes, trace elements and flavours.
The pure oil flows into stainless steel barrels where it rests for up to three days in order for the oil sludge to settle on the bottom of the barrel. We do not filter, refine or further process our oil. It is kept natural and fresh.
Last but not least, the oil is being bottled, properly capped and labeled.
Now you get to buy fresh organic oil in its finest quality!
Ostro Organics Inc. is certified Organic by the
Thriving to deliver premium quality often means that you can’t be satisfied with the first that you come across. When choosing our raw materials we are very selective and picky.
Not every nut or seeds qualifies to suit our standards. Organic, whole, flawless quality that you would choose for snacking, is what we strive for seeing in our premium oils. All our organic raw material is being brought in, that is why we look at different farms whenever time allow us to do so in order to establish ties with farmers who try to sell their products on the Canadian market or to businesses that manufacture Canadian crops in Canada.
Finding the right suppliers that have the products that you are looking for has proven to be a real challenge. Sourcing products locally and regionally is not always possible due to the climatic conditions we face on the west coast of British Columbia.
Keeping in mind that the kernels, seeds and nuts that we buy are the base for extraordinary healthy oil, we look near and far, in order to get the quality we want. For example, when dealing with organic almonds, we look for suppliers that do not pasteurize their crop after harvest.
The extra amount of time spent in sourcing great products sure pays off when looking at the result. Ostro Organic Oils are exquisite in taste, color and scent. Try it your self – You are our best Judge!
