Argan oil organic, roasted and cold pressed
250 ml bottle, toasty-nutty
Argan oil - the liquid gold of Morocco. Argan oil is a Moroccan specialty with a long tradition, cold pressed via a modern manufacturing process using screw presses. Before cold pressing, the kernels are roasted according to a traditional Berber recipe. In this process, the argan oil acquires a toasty, nutty aroma and all the valuable ingredients are preserved.
Traditionally, Berber women extract this precious oil from the seeds of the argan fruits in elaborate manual labor. For some years now, women's cooperations have been formed, which produce the oil on their own responsibility and market it all over the world. To obtain one liter of this precious oil, 30-50 kilos of fruit have to be processed, which is roughly equivalent to the yield of one argania. Harvesting takes place during the summer months. The fruits are first dried gently in the air. To extract the oil, the pulp must be removed and the nut crushed to get at the valuable almond kernel. These are roasted and ground into a paste in stone mills. The oil is then gently pressed out by slow kneading.
The argan tree (Argania spinosa) is native only to southwestern Morocco, an area that was declared a biosphere reserve by UNESCO in 1998. The 8000 square kilometer reserve has a population of 20 million argan trees and is of existential importance to the people living there. Once opened, it should be stored in a cool place.
Ingredient: Argan oil, roasted (DE-ÖKO-013, non-EU agriculture).
Due to its special composition and excellent taste, argan oil can be combined especially with vegetables, salads, fish and poultry.
