Hexane or Solvent Extraction - is the most widely used method for vegetable oil extraction in the western world.
Soybean and Canola seed are the most commonly used.
For more information on this, research “Hexane” and the process of “Solvent Extraction”
Expeller Pressed – is a mechanical extraction process of which Soybean and Canola seed are heated and the oil is then mechanically pressed out. No Hexane or solvents are used in this process.
The Whole Harvest commitment is backed by a patented process that assures its oils have not been extracted using the chemical Hexane or other solvents widely used in processing many oil products for foodservice.
