Which is good - Saturated or Unsaturated fatty acids?
Unsaturated fats include polyunsaturated fatty acids and monounsaturated fats. Both mono- and polyunsaturated fats, when eaten in moderation and used to replace saturated or trans fats, can help lower cholesterol levels and reduce your risk of heart disease.
Ground nut oil contains 20% saturated 80% unsaturated. This is the best oil among all edible oil. Normally unsaturated oils are good for health, they don’t deposit in arteries. Saturated fat is bad but short ,medium chain saturated is good. Long chain is bad.
Coconut oil contains 90% saturated fat, 9% unsaturated. Earlier scientists believed saturated fat is bad. Now they devided saturated fat into 3 type, short, medium, long chain. Further discovered that coconut oil has medium chain and it is good for health.

What is Cold Pressed Oil?
Cold pressing refers to oils obtained through pressing fruit or seeds with a MARACHEKKU/GANA machine with out applying heat. Cold pressed oils retain all their flavour, aroma, and nutritional value, making these oils great for cooking and skin care requirements. It will be free from chemicals and preservatives.
Why should we avoid using Refined Oil?
Refined vegetable oil starts from the seeds of various plant sources. The process of making these oils is a highly intensive mechanical and chemical process. These oils are made using toxic chemicals. Consuming these oils can increase body inflammation, elevate blood triglycerides, and worsen an impaired insulin response. Consuming these oils has been linked to diabetes, cancer and heart disease in multiple studies.
The fats from plant seeds are polyunsaturated. Polyunsaturated denotes a chemical structure which allows them to remain in a fluid state at room temperature, but also makes them prone to rancidity when exposed to heat or light, a process called oxidation. The oxidation factor makes these oils more likely to break down into cancer-causing free radicals within the body.
In addition, many refined vegetable oils are also hydrogenated. This hydrogenation process makes them solid at room temperature so they can be sold as margarine and shortening. This hydrogenation process further damages the fatty acids in the oils, creating trans fatty acids, which are particularly dangerous to human health.

How Refined oil is Extracted?
- After harvesting of the seed plants, the seeds are husked, cleaned, then crushed. The crushed seeds are heated and steamed to start the oil extraction process. A mechanical press is also used to apply high heat and friction to press the oil from the seed pulp.
- The resulting seed pulp and oil are washed in a hexane solvent bath and steamed again to squeeze out more oil.
- At this point, the seed/oil mixture is put through a centrifuge and phosphate is added to begin the separation of the oil and seed residues.
After solvent and centrifuge extraction, the crude oil is separated and the solvent is evaporated and recovered.
