How is grapeseed oil extracted
The optimal Almond Carrier Oil production process involves Drying, which is vital for quality oil, hence, Almonds must be dried to reduce their humidity content. This contributes to the longer shelf life of the finished product by reducing the oil’s risk of developing fungal growth caused by wet fruit. Still in their shells, the Almonds are transported onto rollers where their hulls, stones, and any debris are removed in a process called Hulling, Shelling, or Cracking. Finally, the extraction process begins. Sweet Almond Carrier Oil is derived from the ripe seeds/kernels of Almond fruits by cold pressing, which preserves the oil’s quality by protecting it from heat. Sometimes the extraction process requires a previous pulverization of the seeds. Cold pressing involves placing Almonds between two rotating metal plates to apply mechanical pressure that will cause them to break and release their oils. The resultant oil is darker than Almond oil that undergoes refinement. Cold pressed Sweet Almond Carrier Oil also has a higher content of beneficial constituents such as monounsaturated fats as well as valuable properties like antimicrobial activity.
