Hempseed oil, cold-pressed
Hemp oil is high in valuable essential fatty acids. It contains a relatively high proportion of valuable linolenic acid, which is also known as omega-3 fatty acid. Omega-3 fatty acids are to be found especially in saltwater fish. This makes hemp oil an excellent alternative to fish. But that's not all. Hemp oil also contains the rare gamma-linolenic acid as well as vitamin E and minerals. As part of a balanced diet, this oil therefore makes a positive contribution to guaranteeing the optimum ratio of 5:1 of omega 6 and omega-3 fatty acids.
Where possible, the raw materials for Naturata oils are sourced from farmers working according to biodynamic principles. The organic pioneer sources native products from farmers in the region; other specialities are bought from our long-standing project partners in Europe and around the world.
The designation "virgin" stands for a special quality class of organic oils. The quality criteria have been clearly defined by the German Association of Organic Processors, Wholesalers and Retailers (BNN): The raw materials originate exclusively from certified organic sources and are exclusively mechanically pressed without the application of heat (cold-pressed). They are not subsequently treated in any way (exception: filtering) - In this way, natural oils are produced which still contain all essential ingredients and have their own characteristic and unmistakable taste.
Nothing but the best: We only use organic ingredients of highest quality in our products.

The oil is pressed gently, without the application of heat. This means that essential ingredients are retained. The oils are rounded off in a gentle, three-stage filtering process. In contrast to many other methods, Naturata oils are filtered without the use of additives and centrifuges. The oil flows through filters at low pressure ? a decisive factor when it comes to quality and taste. In the quality laboratory, numerous quality parameters, both in the raw materials and the finished oils, are continuously measured and monitored. Throughout the entire process, care is taken to ensure that the oil is exposed to oxygen as little as possible. This would lead to oxidation which has a detrimental effect on quality.
Tips for preparation
The oil with the delicate, nutty flavour is a highly popular ingredient in the kitchen, due to its valuable fatty-acid spectrum. It is ideal for salads, dressings, marinades and spreads. Since it has a relatively low smoke point, however, it is not suitable for frying or deep-frying. The hemp oil, on the other hand, can also be used for steaming vegetables.
