A production method that does not use any added heat in the extraction or pressing process.  In the case of oil, this means that no heat is added in the process of getting the oil out of either fruit or seeds.  A cold pressed oil also requires that the extraction process doesn’t cause enough friction to bring the product to a high temperature on it’s own — even if no heat was separately added.
