Cold Pressing Culinary Oils Technique
Cold Pressing Technique
At Ostro Organics we use a modern low-pressure screw press to extract the oil from various nuts and seeds. Focusing on low pressure in addition to low heat extraction. Higher heat means higher yield but also more alteration when it comes to its molecular structure. At Ostro Organics we press every oil at s different heat point. Ranging from 9° to 29° degrees Celsius.
Ostro Organics presses oils under very low pressure and minimal temperatures. Currently ranging between 9° and 29° Celsius. Resulting in low yield oil extraction, obtaining a yield of roughly 55% depending on the variety of nut and seed.
Higher yields can easily be reached by applying industry standards including: More pressure, heat, solvents in addition to adding other agents to the extraction process.
Overall, when consuming Ostro Organics cold pressed oils in this pure, fresh, natural and real form, you will NOT be consuming hydrogenated fats or trans fatty acids.

Ostro Organics Oil Mill
Ostro Organics Oils are pressed fresh, in small batches in Victoria B.C. Canada
The origin of various crops is subject to change. In addition to farmers crop rotation, harvest short falls, cost of shipping and not to mention world demand. For example when sourcing nuts, special focus on unpasteurized nuts, the country of origin can change frequently.
- The raw oil is being pressed in small batches.
- After pressing the oil sludge settles at the bottom of the oil barrel.
- The fresh oil is then carefully being decanted and bottled.
- Followed by capping and proper labeling.
