|Filtered Oils||Refined Oils|
|Filtered oils or Kachi ghani as we call in India are the ones which are filtered through strainers to eliminate the solid particles & other impurities from the seed .
They appear to be more dark and cloudy and also the smell is more prominent.
Filtered oils are produced at a lower temperature which retain most of the nutrition & the fatty acid bonds doesn’t become toxic. To make filtered oils the best grade of seeds are used.
|Refined oils on the other hand are treated with chemicals to get rid of impurities & odor to give a clear appearance. Refined oils are produced at a higher temperature which becomes toxic for the health.|
|Example: Groundnut Oil, Mustard Oil, Coconut Oil, Etc.||Example: Sunflower Oil, Soyabean Oil, Canola Oil, Vegetable Oil, Etc.|
Hence, Filtered Oils are healthier than Refined Oils.
