Q.7 What are the benefits of Hand Ground Spices?
Spices are filled with volatile oils, which are what give them their flavor and complexity. When you grind them, you release those oils, and they begin to dissipate. In two weeks to a month after grinding, you have the sharpest drop in flavor, a rapid loss of those oils.
If and when spices are ground with commercial blade grinders in the factories, excess of heat is generated and it takes away all the taste and aroma from the spices. Apart from adding colour, flavour and taste, consumption of spices provide infinite health benefits. Traditional Hand grinding of spices keeps the temperature low so that it retains all medicinal values as well as the aroma and taste.
Q.8 What is the difference between Cold Pressed oil and Refined oil?
Refining may expose oils to high temperature, bleaching agent, deodorizer, degumming, de-waxing among all." Losses of nutritionally viable components such as tocopherol and sterols can happen.
Cold pressed oils are oils extracted in a much healthier process. In this process, seeds are not tortured at high temperatures or subjected to harsh chemicals. Instead, temperatures below 40 degrees Celsius are used ensuring the oil maintains its character. Once the oil settles, it is just filtered and bottled.
