FARM-FRESH MUSTARD SEEDS: Our farm-fresh mustard seeds are proudly grown in India. We traverse hundreds of kilometres and source our mustard seeds directly from the farmers of Rajasthan. First, the outer covering of the seeds is removed. Then, we let the seeds sun-dry for a few days to ensure better taste and aroma before pressing them to obtain yellow mustard oil.
1. What is the difference between refined and cold-pressed oils?
Refined oils are colourless, odourless and flavourless fluids. The regular refined oils are extracted using solvents and grinding them at high speed, which can generate heat up to 100°C, which degrades the oil’s taste and nutritional composition. Trans fats are produced in this process, making them unfit for your heart. While our Semi cold pressed oils are extracted through pressing and grinding of seeds below a temperature of 50°C. Though it is a slow and time-consuming process, they retain their natural flavour, aroma, and nutritional value. They are high in antioxidants and vitamins and contain good fats for a healthy heart.
2. Can I use mustard oil for cooking?
Yes of Course. Just like most cooking oils, mustard oil has a diverse set of applications. It has a high smoke point and can be used to sauté or stir-fry vegetables, for marination, in salads, and aachar, and its aromatic qualities make it perfect for tadka.
3. Can I use it for body massage?
A regular massage with mustard oil helps in relieving aching joints and muscles. You also experience relief and comfort after a massage with mustard oil. Jagriti Mustard Oil is 100% pure and chemical-free, thus making it safe to use unless you are allergic to it.
