What makes our grape seed oil so good?
South Africa’s grape vines are of the healthiest in the world – we use less pesticides than other countries and our grapes are free of genetically modified organisms (GMO-free),
because we extract the oil from the grape seed using cold pressing rather than chemical extraction, the oil is not preheated and the natural goodness is preserved,
the virgin oil is cooled to freezing point so that the esters (responsible for the smell and taste of the oil) crystallize and may be naturally filtered from the oil,
the result is Extra Virgin Cold Pressed Grape Seed Oil – natural goodness at its best!
DID YOU KNOW?
It takes 30 kg of grape seed to manufacture a single 250ml bottle of Grape Seed Cooking Oil.
WHAT IS COLD PRESSED?
The cold pressed process is a healthy alternative to traditional chemical extraction methods.
