Cold pressing is a technique in which the oil is mechanically pressed from the seeds at temperatures not exceeding 120F. The oil is cold pressed when the oilseeds are not precooked. In large scale refining operations, the oil is stripped of natural antioxidants, vitamins and flavour. Cold pressed oils or Marachekku oil retains all their flavour, aroma, and nutritional value, making these oils great for cooking and skin care requirements. They contain zero grams of trans fatty acids and are naturally cholesterol-free.

Marachekku Oil is a vital contribution to a healthier life:

  • It is cholesterol free
  • It is not refined, deodorized or processed in any way
  • It does not contain harmful solvent residues
  • It contains no added chemicals or preservatives
  • It contains natural antioxidants such as tocopherols (e.g. Vitamin E) and phosphatides (e.g. Lecithin)
  • The natural flavour and odour is retained, enhancing your favourite recipes

Why choose Marachekku Oils?

When oil is refined, it loses a lot of nutrients but cold pressing it in a chekku ensures that you retain all of it. It ensures that you use healthy oil for daily cooking. Traditionally, south India has been known for using cold pressed oil. Bullocks were led around the ‘chekku’, turning the wooden crusher to extract oil. It was sold loose and people would head to the mills with containers to collect it. Later, industrialised, refined oils took over the market, but now the wheel seems to have made its comeback, with people heading back to the ‘chekku’.

The nutrients, which are usually destroyed by heat while refining, are retained when made in the chekku. Pure cold-pressed oil is not refined, processed or deodorised. It is rich in antioxidants, which boosts immunity and has innumerable therapeutic benefits.
