Making Process

1. Locally Grown

Mustard seeds are grown locally at our regenerative farm and partner farms which practice traditional and natural agriculture. This helps us monitor the quality and purity of the final product.

2. Seed Selection

Mustard is threshed manually and harvested to get high quality seeds that are graded based on their ripeness and oil content to ensure they contribute to the rich flavour and nutritional content of the oil.

3. Cleaning and Sorting

After harvesting, the seeds undergo a thorough cleaning process to remove any impurities, dirt, or debris.

4. Cold Pressing Process

The hallmark of Advait Living's mustard oil lies in the cold pressing method. Seeds are manually pressed in a cold press machine at very low rpm to obtain the oil. No toxic heat or chemical solvents are added and no external heat is applied. No chemical processing of any kind is deployed at any stage. This ensures the natural flavour and nutritional properties of the mustard oil remains intact.

5. Naturally Sedimented

Following the cold pressing, the raw and unrefined mustard oil is allowed to sediment for a couple of days. This step allows any impurities or particles to settle at the bottom.

6. Cold-filtration

After the sedimentation period, the oil undergoes a careful filtration process using a cheesecloth. This step removes any remaining particles or sediment, leaving behind a clear and pure mustard oil.

7. Packaging

The final product, now a fresh and aromatic virgin mustard oil, is elegantly packaged in glass bottles. The choice of glass ensures that the oil remains uncontaminated by external factors and retains its pristine quality until it reaches the consumer.

Consuming these healthy fats in moderation may help lower bad cholesterol levels (LDL cholesterol) and reduce the risk of heart disease.

3. Anti-inflammatory Properties:

Mustard oil contains compounds like allyl isothiocyanate, which exhibit anti-inflammatory properties. Regular consumption of mustard oil may help reduce inflammation in the body and alleviate symptoms of inflammatory conditions like arthritis.

4. Antimicrobial Effects:

Mustard oil possesses antimicrobial properties that can help inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria and fungi. Using mustard oil for cooking or as a massage oil may contribute to maintaining skin and scalp health by preventing infections and promoting healing.

5. Digestive Health:

What does 'Kachi Ghani' mean?

Kachi ghani is a term commonly used in India, particularly in the context of oil extraction. It is derived from Hindi, where kachi means raw or unripe, and ghani refers to a traditional wooden or stone mill used for crushing oilseeds. Therefore, kachi ghani translates to raw crushed or raw pressed in English.

In the context of oil production, kachi ghani specifically refers to a traditional method of extracting oil from oilseeds, such as mustard seeds or sesame seeds. In this method, the seeds are subjected to low-pressure pressing using a wooden chekku or stone mill (ghani) to produce a paste and oil. The oil is extracted without the application of external heat, preserving the natural flavour, aroma, and nutritional properties of the oil.

Kachi ghani oil is highly valued for its mild to moderate pungent flavour and aroma, characteristic of traditional Indian cooking. It is often preferred for its perceived authenticity and nutritional benefits, as the extraction process helps retain the natural integrity of the oil.

What is the difference between cold pressed and kachi ghani mustard oil?

Cold pressing involves extracting oil from seeds at low temperatures, typically below 122°F (50°C), to ensure that the heat-sensitive compounds and nutrients remain intact. This gentle extraction process helps retain the flavour, aroma, colour, and nutritional value of the oil. It's a method often favoured by health-conscious consumers due to its ability to maintain the integrity of the oil and its health benefits.

Kachi ghani is a term used in India that refers to the ‘cold press machine’ or the ‘cold press technique'. Thus the word kachi ghani is a Hindi term for cold pressed. In essence, kachi ghani is essentially synonymous with "cold pressed" in the Indian context. This term highlights the traditional method of oil extraction that prioritizes maintaining the purity and natural goodness of the oil.

Our mustard oil is extracted using the kachi ghani or cold pressed technique, ensuring that the oil retains its natural properties and nutrients. Despite popular belief associating mustard oil with a strong pungent smell, our pure cold pressed mustard oil offers a mild to moderate pungent aroma in comparison to processed mustard oils, indicating a high-quality extraction process that preserves the essence of the mustard seeds without overwhelming the senses.

What is the shelf life of Advait's Cold Pressed Mustard Oil?

Cold pressed oils are best consumed fresh. To be on the safer side, we suggest you use our cold pressed mustard oil before 9 months from the date of manufacture. However, the oil can also be used for much longer, just keep a check on changes in smell and change the oil if the smell goes bad.

3 Tips to Properly Store Cold Pressed Mustard Oil:

Proper storage of cold pressed mustard oil is essential to maintain its quality, flavour, and nutritional benefits. Here are some guidelines for storing cold pressed mustard oil:

1. Cool and Dark Location: 

Store the mustard oil in a cool, dark place away from direct sunlight and heat sources. Exposure to light and heat can accelerate oxidation, leading to a decrease in the oil's quality and shelf life.

2. Airtight Container: 

Keep mustard oil in a clean, dry, and airtight container to prevent air and moisture from entering. Oxygen and moisture can promote rancidity and spoilage of the oil.

3. Avoid Temperature Fluctuations: 

Maintain a consistent storage temperature for the oil. Fluctuations in temperature can cause condensation inside the container, leading to the formation of water droplets and potentially microbial growth. Ideally, store the oil at room temperature or slightly cooler.

By following these storage tips, you can help prolong the shelf life of cold pressed mustard oil and ensure that it remains fresh and flavorful for longer periods.

What if the difference between cold pressed and normal mustard oil?

Cold pressed mustard oil and normal mustard oil differ significantly in extraction method, quality, characteristics, and recommended usage. While cold pressed mustard oil preserves the natural goodness of the seeds and is favored for its flavor and health benefits, normal mustard oil undergoes refining which may alter its qualities.

Here are the Differences Between Cold Pressed Mustard Oil and Normal Mustard Oil:

1. Extraction Method:

Cold Pressed Oil:

  • Extracted at low temperatures (typically below 122°F or 50°C).
  • No external heat or chemicals are used.
  • Gentle pressing process preserves natural properties, flavour, aroma, colour, and nutrients of the mustard seeds.

Normal Mustard Oil:

  • Extracted through a refining process.
  • May involve high temperatures and the use of chemicals such as solvents.
  • Refining process removes impurities, odour, and some natural compounds from the oil.

2. Quality and Characteristics:

Cold Pressed Oil:

  • Retains integrity and health-promoting compounds.
  • Preferred for its natural flavour, aroma, and nutritional benefits.
  • Often favoured by health-conscious consumers.

Normal Mustard Oil:

  • May have a longer shelf life and higher smoke point.
  • Flavour, aroma, colour, and nutritional profile may be altered due to refining process.
  • Lacks some of the distinctive qualities and health benefits of cold-pressed mustard oil.

3. Considerations for Usage

Cold Pressed Mustard Oil:

  • Suitable for those seeking a higher quality, more nutritious option.
  • Ideal for use in salads, dressings, and dishes where the natural flavour and aroma are desired.

Normal Mustard Oil:

  • Commonly used in cooking and frying due to its longer shelf life and higher smoke point.
  • May be preferred for certain culinary applications where the refined taste is acceptable.

How to check the quality of cold pressed mustard oil?

9 Things To Check Before Buying Cold Pressed Mustard Oil:

Checking the quality of cold pressed mustard oil involves examining several key factors to ensure its purity, freshness, and nutritional integrity. Here's how to assess the quality of cold pressed mustard oil:

1. Golden Hue: 

High-quality cold pressed mustard oil typically exhibits a rich, golden hue. Avoid oils that appear cloudy or have a very dark colour as they may indicate impurities or oxidation.

2. Pleasant Aroma: 

The oil should have a pleasant, characteristic aroma that is fresh and indicative of mustard seeds. Extremely high pungency may be indicative of artificial essence added to the oil. Be wary of any off-putting or rancid odours, as they may signal poor quality or spoilage.

3. Flavourful: 

Cold pressed mustard oil should have a robust, distinctive flavour that is characteristic of mustard seeds. It should impart a pleasant pungency and slightly spicy taste to dishes without being overpowering.

4. Zero Artificial Pungency: 

Authentic cold pressed mustard oil has a pleasant pungency that is rather mild. Mustard oils with artificial aroma enhancers will have very strong pungency that may even hurt the eyes. A good quality mustard oil will not contain any added artificial pungency enhancers or flavourings.

5. No Blending: 

Ensure that the mustard oil is not blended with any other oils or additives. Pure cold pressed mustard oil should be 100% derived from mustard seeds without any dilution or mixing with other oils.

6. Chemical-Free: 

Verify that the oil is free from chemical additives, preservatives, or solvents. Cold pressed mustard oil should be extracted using mechanical pressing methods without the use of chemical solvents.

7. High Smoke Point and Heat Stable: 

Cold pressed mustard oil is heat stable (doesn't easily break down under heat to form harmful compounds) and also has a relatively high smoke point, making it suitable for various cooking methods, including frying and sautéing.

8. Trans Fat-Free: 

Check the nutritional label to ensure that the mustard oil is free from trans fats. Cold pressed oils are naturally trans fat-free and contribute to a healthier diet.

9. Bioavailability: 

Cold pressed mustard oil retains its natural nutrients and bioactive compounds, making them easily available to the body to break down and use within the body.

By considering these factors and performing sensory evaluations, you can confidently assess the quality of cold pressed mustard oil and choose a product that meets your standards for purity, freshness, and flavour.

6 Amazing Benefits of Cold Pressed Mustard Oil for Skin!

Cold pressed mustard oil offers numerous benefits for skin health due to its rich nutritional profile and natural properties. Here are some of the benefits of using cold pressed mustard oil for skin:

1. Moisturizing: 

Cold pressed mustard oil is an excellent natural moisturizer that helps hydrate and nourish the skin. It penetrates deeply into the skin layers, providing long-lasting hydration without leaving a greasy residue.

2. Antioxidant Protection: 

Mustard oil contains antioxidants like vitamin E and selenium, which help protect the skin from damage caused by free radicals. These antioxidants neutralize free radicals, preventing premature aging and maintaining skin elasticity.

3. Anti-inflammatory: 

Mustard oil contains allyl isothiocyanate which has amazing anti-inflammatory properties that can help soothe and calm irritated or inflamed skin conditions such as acne, eczema, and psoriasis. It helps reduce redness, swelling, and discomfort associated with these skin conditions.

4. Antibacterial and Antifungal: 

Mustard oil has glucosinolates and isothiocyanates, whose antimicrobial properties effectively combat bacteria and fungi that can cause skin infections. It helps cleanse the skin and prevent the growth of acne-causing bacteria and fungi.

5. Improves Circulation: 

Massaging cold pressed mustard oil onto the skin stimulates blood circulation, promoting oxygen and nutrient delivery to skin cells. Improved circulation enhances skin health, resulting in a radiant and glowing complexion.

6. Skin Brightening: 

Regular use of cold pressed mustard oil can help lighten dark spots, hyperpigmentation, and blemishes, resulting in a more even-toned complexion. It brightens dull skin and restores its natural radiance.

Why do authentic mustard oils have a strong pungent smell?

The pungent smell of authentic mustard oil is attributed to its unique composition of natural compounds, particularly glucosinolates and allyl isothiocyanate (AITC). While the aroma may be intense, it is a sign of the oil's quality, freshness, and authenticity, making it a prized ingredient in many culinary traditions.

Here's why authentic mustard oils have such a distinctive aroma:

Glucosinolates: Mustard seeds contain glucosinolates, which are sulfur-containing compounds that contribute to their characteristic pungent smell. When mustard seeds are crushed or ground, an enzyme called myrosinase interacts with glucosinolates, leading to the formation of volatile compounds, including AITC.

Allyl Isothiocyanate (AITC): AITC is the main volatile compound responsible for the pungent odor and spicy taste of mustard oil. It is released when glucosinolates are hydrolyzed by myrosinase enzymes present in mustard seeds. AITC has a strong, distinctive odor that is reminiscent of mustard and can be detected even in small quantities.

Volatility: AITC is highly volatile, meaning it easily evaporates into the air and can be detected even at low concentrations. This volatility contributes to the strong, lingering aroma of authentic mustard oil, which can permeate dishes and cooking spaces.

Preservation: The pungent smell of authentic mustard oil also serves as a natural preservative, helping to inhibit the growth of microorganisms that can cause spoilage. This antimicrobial property has made mustard oil a popular choice for preserving pickles and other food items in traditional cuisines.

Quality Indicator: A mild but readily available pungent smell is a sign of a good quality raw and unrefined mustard oil. It indicates that the oil has been derived from high-quality mustard seeds and processed using traditional methods that preserve its natural aroma and flavour.

Which mustard oil is best for the heart?

Mustard Oil and Heart Health:

This includes beneficial compounds such as omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, vitamin E, and selenium, which are known to support cardiovascular health.

Cardioprotective Compounds:

Mustard oil contains compounds like allyl isothiocyanate, which have been shown to possess anti-inflammatory and cardioprotective properties. These compounds may help reduce inflammation in the arteries, improve blood flow, and lower the risk of heart disease.

Research suggests that the consumption of mustard oil, particularly cold pressed varieties, may have positive effects on heart health. Studies have found that mustard oil consumption was associated with beneficial changes in lipid profiles, including reductions in total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, and triglycerides, which are risk factors for cardiovascular disease.

It's essential to consult with a healthcare professional or nutritionist for personalized dietary advice, especially if you have specific health concerns or conditions related to heart health. They can provide guidance on incorporating cold pressed mustard oil into your diet safely and effectively.

What is the process of taking out cold pressed mustard oil?

Process of Extracting Cold Pressed Mustard Oil:

The process of extracting cold pressed mustard oil is a meticulous and time-honoured tradition that results in a superior quality cooking oil packed with lots of flavour and nutritional benefits.

Let's delve into the intricacies of this extraction process to understand how we obtain pure and fresh mustard oil from farm-fresh mustard seeds.

1. Selection and Threshing of Locally Grown Mustard

Locally grown mustard seeds are carefully selected for quality and freshness. The seeds are then threshed to separate them from their husks or pods, ensuring that only the clean seeds are used for oil extraction.

2. Grading of Mustard Seeds

The highest quality mustard seeds are chosen for oil extraction. These seeds undergo a grading process to ensure consistency in flavour, aroma, and overall quality. Grading helps to select seeds with a delightful aroma and enhanced flavours, resulting in a superior quality oil.

3. Crushing of Seeds in Traditional Chekku or Ghani

The selected mustard seeds are crushed slowly in a traditional wooden chekku or ghani. This process involves pressing the seeds at low temperatures without the use of external heat or chemicals.

The slow crushing ensures that the natural properties, flavour, aroma, and nutrients of the mustard seeds are preserved, resulting in high-quality oil.

4. Cold Filtering and Natural Sedimentation

Once the seeds are crushed, the oil is filtered using a cheese cloth to remove any remaining impurities. This is a gentle process that maintains the integrity of the oil and helps to retain its natural qualities. The oil is then allowed to naturally sediment, which separates impurities from the pure mustard oil.

This final step ensures that the extracted oil is free from any unwanted particles or contaminants, resulting in pure, high-quality cold pressed mustard oil.

Through this meticulous process, cold pressed mustard oil is extracted, retaining the essence of the mustard seeds and offering a flavorful and nutritious cooking oil option.

My cold pressed oil is creating a fizz/foam while cooking. Is that normal?

Cold pressed oils may sometimes create foam or fizz while cooking. This is because freshly cold pressed oils may have some moisture present in them. It is by no means rancid or bad. The moisture gets heated and evaporates and you can continue cooking. The quality of oil is not compromised.

Nice choice for skincare

I always make ubtan at home using mustard oil for skincare, but I always found a pungent smeel and sometime strong on skin but Advait Living's mustard oil is truly exceptional. It has no foul smell and is very mild on skin.. Plus the natural fragrance is top notch!

Great aroma

Nice aroma of Mustard oil, glass bottle makes it better for oil storage. One but I would suggest is to give some sort of nozzle so that to pour the oil it would be easier.

Great packaging!

There's no question about the quality of mustard oil. And I would buy it again just for its packaging. It's so pretty and even better, comes in glass bottles.

Authentic products

I've been using Advait Living's mustard oil for the last few months, and the aroma is exactly how wood pressed mustard oil should be. It's pure and thick, unlike other brands like Dhara or Fortune, which add other elements like onion or chilli to make the strong pungent smell of mustard oil. This one is more authentic and a small quantity is enough for your cooking.

Elevate Your Culinary Experience with Advait Living's Cold Pressed Mustard Oil (authentic kachi ghani mustard oil) 

Why is Advait Living's Cold Pressed Mustard Oil different?

Advait Living's Cold Pressed Mustard Oil is more than just a kitchen staple; it's a holistic choice for those seeking purity, flavour, and well-being in every drop.

Crafted from 100% black mustard seeds cultivated on our regenerative farm and partner farms, it is meticulously extracted using the time honored technique of cold pressing or using a kachi ghani to extract the oil. No chemical processing of any kind is done. Most importantly, our mustard oil is “Single Pressed” meaning the seeds are pressed only once, (unlike commercial oils which are pressed multiple times), making it ‘Grade 1’ (highest quality of oil). Try it to experience its unique features including a golden hue, pleasant aroma, smooth texture, unique flavour, and unparalleled freshness as it is made in small batches to preserve its nutrients. Available in 250 ml, 1 Ltr and 5Ltr pack sizes, this authentic kachi ghani mustard oil is packaged in usually glass bottles to encourage sustainability. However, our 1Ltr and 5Ltr cold pressed mustard oil bottle is shipped in plastic bottle for long-distance orders to avoid breakage.

Our raw and unrefined cold pressed mustard oil is an excellent and healthy alternative to refined cooking oils. It is ideal for stir-frying, sautéing, and even deep-frying, thanks to its impressive heat stability and high smoke point. It is also nutrient-dense and can be used for body massage, skincare and haircare.

Key Features of Advait Living's Pure and Unrefined Mustard Oil 

  1. Pure and Authentic: Advait Living's pure mustard oil is 100% ‘raw, unrefined and cold pressed’ mustard oil. It is obtained from black mustard seeds by mechanically pressing them usually on a traditional ghani and without the use of any toxic heat and chemical solvents or any chemical processing at all.
  2. Virgin & Single Press: It is called ‘virgin’ mainly because it is ‘single pressed’ without repeated pressing of the seeds for extraction of additional oil. This makes it one of the highest-quality oil and is often ranked as “Grade A” oil. 
  3. Cold Pressed Vs Kachi Ghani Mustard Oil: Cold Pressing is a technique where the oil is extracted at low temperatures without any external heat or chemicals, ensuring that the natural properties and nutrients of the seeds are retained. "Kachi Ghani" is a term used in India that refers to the ‘cold press machine’ or the ‘cold press technique’. Thus the word ‘kachi ghani’ is a hindi term for "cold-pressed".
