The BioChef Vega Oil Press Machine is a true innovation in home oil extraction. Unlike any other machine on the market, the BioChef Vega Oil Press Extractor is designed primarily for home use. The BioChef Vega Oil Press Machine is simple and easy to use, meaning you can start creating your own sunflower oil, sesame oil, flax seed oil, hemp oil and more from your own home!
Oil extracted with the BioChef Vega Oil Press is cold pressed with the living nutrients and enzymes intact. Most store-bought oils have preservatives added to the oil to extend its shelf life. Cold pressing your own oils mean you know that your oil is pure, with no additives! Cold pressed oils also retain their flavour and aroma; enhancing the flavours of food when cooking.
The expeller press works by extracting oil with a mechanical press rather than through a chemical extraction process. The expeller press is a screw type machine, which presses the nuts and seeds through a barrel, creating friction and pressure to compress the ingredients. The ingredients are ground which separates the liquid from the pulp without the oil rising above 50ºc, therefore retaining all the nutrients and enzymes. This means that you are left with a cold pressed oil that maintains all the flavours, aromas and nutritional value of the ingredients you have just put through the machine. Generally, the BioChef Vega Oil Press will take 4-8 minutes to extract oil from 200 grams of ingredients.
