Mustard Oil (Cold pressed)
Our Mustard Oil (mustard sourced from villages around the hills of Ranikhet) is extracted by a traditional cold-press method wherein the nutrient retention is high due to low heat generation.
Mustard oil has culinary as well as therapeutic uses. In Indian cuisine it is widely used in curries and vegetables, for marinating and for preservation of pickles. It has a high smoke point making it an ideal choice for deep frying in the Indian kitchens.
Mustard oil is considered a rich source of Omega- 3 and Omega-6 fatty acids. It is also useful for nourishing the skin and scalp.
Our Mustard oil has been extracted from Mustard cultivated in villages situated in the Ramganga Catchment around the hills of Ranikhet in the Almora district of Uttarakhand. The river originating in the southern slopes of Dudhatoli Hills of Gairsain subdivision (Diwali Khal) is endowed with beautiful landscapes and is the lifeline of world-famous Corbett National Park. As it flows through untouched mountain corridors, it brings with itself an abundance of pure aquatic and loam properties. Mustard, grown by our women SHG members in their fields in this rich valley, imbibes the purity of Ramganga waters, which manifests in its taste and properties.
Our Mustard oil has been extracted using the ancient cold-press method that helps in preserving the flavour and aroma of oils while retaining naturally occurring phytochemical such as polyphenols, plant sterols and even vitamins.
