Unrefined vs. Refined


BottlePourCamelina Gold oil is processed using natural processes, without any harsh chemicals, solvents or contaminants. Unrefined oils are the most simple and healthiest form of oil processing. Left in their virgin state after pressing, these oils tend to be rich, robust and true to their seed flavors and aromas. Like unrefined whole grain flours, unrefined oils are more nutritious.

Refined cooking oils are made by highly mechanical and often chemical processes to extract, bleach, degum, or hydrogenate oil. These unnatural processes remove nutrients from the seeds such as: fiber, proteins, chlorophyll, essential minerals and vitamins.  This can create a product which oxidizes easily, thus, depleting the quality of the oil when used in cooking.
