Svastya Organic Farms organic wooden cold pressed mustard oil is made from high-quality, hand-picked organic dry mustard seeds gathered from native mustard plants by organic farmers using the wooden cold-pressed method at 8-12 rpm.
In general, cold-pressed oils have been shown to retain all the inherent characteristics of oil seeds while also maintaining their nutritional profile.
The mustard seeds are graded as the first step in the oil extraction process. The best seeds are hand-picked from rotten, contaminated organic mustards, together with stones, husks, and other dust particles, and evaluated using the conventional hand-picked method.
After being hand-picked, these seeds are naturally sun-dried for two days to remove all moisture from the top grade organic mustards and effectively create oil.
- In the cold pressed process, mustard cannot be pressed alone since it requires a binding agent to make oil. As a result, we employ organic palm jaggery as a binding agent for extracting oil.
- Based on the capacity of the wooden cold pressed machine, handpicked organic mustards are poured. Our machine has a capacity of 12 kg of organic mustard seeds and 2 kg of organic palm jaggery. When the grinding process has begun, some coconut water and organic palm jaggery are added to provide the appropriate friction. The wooden cold-pressed machine works at 8-12 rpm and completes one cycle of oil production in 60-80 minutes (Based on the dryness of the seeds).. From 12 kg of organic mustards, we generate 2.5-2.8 litres of organic mustard oil.
- The extracted organic wooden cold pressed mustard oil is then stored in a metal barrel for 4 days to let the mustard paste formed during the grinding process to settle naturally, followed by 2-3 days in the sunshine to eliminate any leftover moisture.
- To maintain the taste and flavour, the settled organic mustard oil is hand filtered and poured into virgin glass bottles.
