Most oils, with the exception of olive oil, are extracted with the use of chemical solvents that are later evaporated from the oil in the refining process. For many health food advocates, there is always the question of possible chemical residue leftover from the extraction process. There are no additives, preservatives or stabilizers added at any point in the refining process. Texas Pecan Oil has been deodorized to provide for a neutral flavor and has been winterized so that it can be stored in the refrigerator without clouding or thickening.
