Not to toot our own horn but she is the MVP.
Who? Our Kadalekai yenne! AKA groundnut oil. You know the old story of a chipmunk who craves groundnut and how it made him happy? We’re like that chipmunk! Groundnut makes us happy. The only thing better than groundnut is stuff fried in groundnut oil! But not all groundnut oils are made the same. If you're on this blog, you already know that. So we’ll just tell you how we make groundnut oil!
As you are aware, we extract the oils from a 2000 years old technique. It is the most sustainable way of production and it doesn't pollute the environment. Mass produce, factory-made oils lose all their natural properties and go through refining, oxidising, bleaching, and adding chemicals to produce artificially made, “natural” odour. This practice is very harmful to your body and your food becomes toxic. That is one of the many reasons why bull-driven cold-pressed oils are the healthy choice for you.
We keep receiving guests from across the country. Most of them are health-conscious folks who are keen to know how we make our oils. But a few days back, we had a special visitor Perana visited our farm with her parents during summer break and was curious to know about how bull-driven groundnut oil is made from scratch. We told things everything about how it is extracted using the crusher that rotates 2-3 Rotations per minute. She could see that every drop of this oil is a product of high energy and hard work.

Then she asked about how it helps her if she uses the oil? We did not know where to start but here are some things we told her:
Oldest methods of extraction
Let us set the scene. This oil is a product of a 2000-year-old tradition. This method is depicted in several south Indian temples, it is the slowest and THE most holistic way of extracting the oil
Lower Insulin Resistance
Because mono-unsaturated and polyunsaturated healthy fats are present in ground nut oil, it improves blood sugar and controls the sugar. Bull-driven ground nut oil helps to improve insulin sensitivity and lower blood sugar in people with diabetes. It is also a great source of vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant that protects the body from free radical damage.

After listening to so many facts, she said that wants to come back with her classmates to do a project on how bull-driven cold-pressed oils are made. They even bought some oils from us and we hope that Perna enjoys french fries made from bull-driven groundnut oil
