Q Factor: In Wanam, we use the traditional wooden churner and stone mortar to extract the oil. The process does not involve much heat and hence the name, cold-pressing. Also the cold-pressing with the combination of stone mortar and wooden churner has more health benefits than the modern stainless steel presses. This makes Wanam to stand out from the crowd. Unlike refined oils, cold-pressed oil is packed with all nutrients and minerals of the nuts and seeds. The wooden churner used is made of Vaagai or South Indian Walnut which is a non toxic tree finds a mention in Sangam literature for its healing power. Vaagai absorbs heat and maintains the temperature during oil extraction process. This helps in retaining the nutrients and the aroma of the oil. Hence Wanam is full of Vaagai!
