As one of the healthiest natural fats around, Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO) is a staple on dinner tables and in kitchens across the globe.
But – how do you ensure that the olive oil retains all its nourishment during the production process – especially in the form of polyphenols?
Cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil could just be your answer.
This guide will explain everything you have ever wanted to know about cold pressed olive oil, from the benefits to the manufacturing process and everything in-between.
Hailing from the Mediterranean, olives are a stone fruit.
Much like other fruits, the nutrients in olives are impacted by weather, the quality of soil used in cultivation, and the applied olive oil’s extraction procedures at olive-milling facilities.
First cold-pressed olive oil is one way of ensuring beneficial compounds – such as polyphenols – stay locked within the olive extract.
But – what is first cold pressing?
First cold pressing is the process by which olives are crushed only once at heat levels that don’t exceed 80 degrees Fahrenheit (27°C).
Low temperatures secure immense flavor, nutrition, and earthly textures – three key factors that make organic cold-pressed olive oil stand head and shoulders above mass-produced commodities.
Cold pressing requires endlessly complex machinery, but the process is easily understandable for non-farmers and food manufacturer novices.
By using a bulky pressing device, producers grind the fruits of the olive tree (olives) – releasing the golden juice contained within them (the olive oil). Under normal pressing circumstances, a form of heating would be applied to make the extraction process quicker and more efficient.
In a cold-pressing environment, the only heat applied is that which is produced internally. A cold press process preserves aromas, flavorings, and purity – so you receive the most benefits from the olive you can.
Most importantly, the absence of heat preserves polyphenols, the pre-mentioned miracle ingredient found in all olives.
The benefits obtained by consuming cold-pressed olive oil are virtually endless. If you are looking for a nutrient-filled meal option, then first cold-pressed olive oil should be stocked on your shelves.
Some of the nutrients included in the best cold-pressed olive oil include:
Cold Pressed Extra Virgin Olive Oil preserves the highest possible concentration of polyphenols among other extremely beneficial EVOO ingredients.
According to numerous scientific studies and clinical research, ingredients provide:
A Decrease in Inflammation – Thanks to its healthy fats and high levels of antioxidants, cold-pressed high phenolic olive oil acts as a barrier against heart diseases, Alzheimer's, and some forms of cancer. By regulating the amount of fat in your bloodstream, cold-pressed olive oil aids those with insulin problems.
Extended Shelf Life – Certain forms of natural fat can preserve food items. Oleic acid, a monosaturated fat found in olives, will prevent the oil from going old. This allows for your cold-pressed olive oil to be stored longer than other cold-pressed oils – saving you money and shopping trips.
Antioxidizing Action – Heat naturally kills off several antioxidants during the manufacturing process, whereas cold pressing preserves them. Antioxidants guard our immune system against unstable cells that cause heart disease and chronic diabetes. Oleuropein, a substance found in olive oil polyphenols, also guards the body. In some instances, Oleuropein fights cancer.
A Healthy Brain – While more research should be conducted, initial testing indicates that cold-pressed medicinal grade olive oil maintains your brainpower. Individuals who follow high-fat Mediterranean diets are shown to have experienced a slower rate of cognitive decline as they age into their 60s, 70s, and 80s. Tests conducted on animals show a decrease in Alzheimer’s related brain plaque.
Regulation of Blood Sugar Levels – Oleuropein does more than just fight cancer. Over an extended medical study, participants were encouraged to consume 20mg of Oleuropein to see the effects. According to PubMed Central, scientists were stunned to see that participants experienced a 14% lower blood sugar spike after consuming their routine meals.
What’s more, regarding Cold Pressed Extra Virgin Olive Oil:
It’s an Eco-Friendly Option – In an ever-shifting world, maintaining eco-consciousness is imperative. Cold pressing utilizes far fewer chemicals than traditional pressing. The heat used to hammer and grind small fruits and seeds is also not utilized in cold pressing, meaning the technique is far more energy-efficient. The best cold-pressed olive oil allows consumers to be kinder to their bodies, and to the environment.
It Can be Used as a Beauty Product – Cold-pressed olive oil has been used as a cosmetic product for decades.
