The result of the natural process conducted under delicate conditions are the preservation of all bioactive components of the final products, such as polyunsaturated fatty acids, antioxidants and vitamins (among other pro-vitamin A).
The Awara Pulp Oil acquires in this way high chemical stability, and its free of impurities such as oxidizing agents, peroxides and free fatty acids.
