Release your inner chef with Melrose Kitchen Oils - your best guarantee of freshness, purity and quality. The importance of the essential fatty acids in vegetable oil demands nothing less. Melrose Fresh Unrefined Oils will impart extra aroma and flavor as well as nutritional benefits, just like any other whole food which has not been denatured or processed.
Good quality oils need to be expeller-pressed at temperatures below 45oC and not solvent extracted. They should not be subjected to high heat temperatures, deodorizing, bleaching or alkali refining. Melrose Organic Unrefined oils are produced by pressing seeds at less than 40oC. The oil is then bottled under nitrogen and packed in amber bottles to reduce both photon and auto-oxidation preserving both the nutritional value and the fresh taste.
We would not recommend using this oil for frying as it would destroy the good fat content. You can create an easy dressing with the delicious nutty flavor of Melrose Organic Pumpkin Seed Oil together with vinegar. For a new experience try it on fresh green salads, warm potato or bean salads. Marinade meat, drizzle over steamed vegetables or pasta plus delicious results in baking.
