Indian households have been using a variety of oils to not only cook their daily meals but also for a variety of other purposes as well. One of the most commonly used oils, thus, with such characteristics is sesame oil. While commercially available refined sesame seed oil has a number of issues that make it unfit for regular use in the longer term, nothing really comes close to beating the efficacy of wood pressed sesame oil.
Through the use of traditional wood pressing techniques to extract oil from the seeds, Ghani or Chekku oil producers ensure the highest quality yield. Wood-pressing oil extraction makes use of a heavy wooden pestle that rotates on an axis, slowly crushing the seeds. The slow speeds, less heat, and the elimination of the use of any chemicals in the oil make it the healthiest choice in edible oils available in the market.

However, the most common question that people have about the use of wood pressed oils is what makes it a better choice over the readily available and affordable refined oils.

Why Choose Wood Pressed Oil?
When you buy wood pressed oil, you get 100% unadulterated healthy cooking oil. There are no additives or chemicals added to the mix to aid the extraction process. The low temperatures of extraction make sure that the fats in the oil do not break down.
Only the best of the local produce is selected for the oil. They are handpicked, cleaned, and dried in the sun to protect the nutrients from getting denatured.
Wood pressing the seeds preserves their vital nutrients and natural properties. As a result, the oil retains all the wholesome goodness of its seeds.
Most significantly, the combined effect of all these processes makes wood pressed oils a healthy choice.
