Gentle Processing™ Objective: Reduce oxidative stress potential, enhance flavour profiles, and boost food safety.

The global demand for food oils has experienced growth over the past few decades. With changing tastes and a renewed focus on sustainable food sources and healthier food oils, the demand for alternatives has gained traction. Canola and soybean oil, for example, offer nutrients, healthy fats, and a significant amount of protein. These oils are trapped in seeds and must be extracted. Each canola seed for example, contains nearly 40% oil by volume, the rest is made up of hulls and moisture, which must be removed. Gentle Processing™ improves the taste and longevity of these oils and oil seeds.

Benefits of Gentle Processing™:

  • Reduces the potential for premature oxidation, which eliminates the risk of rancidity in oil seeds.
  • Reduces moisture levels to prevent microbial growth or bacterial infestation.
  • Prolongs the life of oil seeds to make stocking and storage convenient and cost-effective.
  • Improves flavour profiles by lowering the oxidative stress potential of the seed and/or oil.

More information

Gentle Processing™ is ideal for hemp seeds, which are a source of nutritional hemp oil. This technology eliminates the need for peracetic acid, a toxic substance used in the production process. Gentle Processing™ can prolong the life of hemp oil and hemp milk while improving flavour profile, and preserving all the natural nutrients present in hemp including, digestible proteins, minerals, essential vitamins and essential fatty acids like Omega 3 and 6 . The process is organic in nature when compared to the traditional methods and is sure to gain traction as demand for hemp-based products expand across the globe.
