Cold Pressing Technique
At Ostro Organics we use a modern low-pressure screw press to extract the oil from the nuts and seeds. Focusing on low pressure and 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 a 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 be easily reached by applying industry standards including more pressure, heat, solvents and adding other agents to the extraction process.
When consuming Ostro Organics borage seed oil in this pure, fresh, natural and real form, you will NOT be consuming hydrogenated fats or trans fatty acids
