Argan oil organic, cold pressed
250 ml bottle, typically nutty, virgin
Argan oil, the liquid gold of Morocco, is a traditional Moroccan treasure. Without roasting the argan seeds, the argan oil is cold pressed in a modern manufacturing process without the use of water. The unroasted argan oil thus retains its typical flavor.
Traditionally, Berber women extract this precious oil from the seeds of the argan fruit 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. The almond kernels are then 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, virgin (DE-ÖKO-013, non-EU agriculture).
The unroasted argan oil can be excellently added to oriental dishes, taken pure and especially used in cosmetics.
Notes on storage and consumption:
When stored in a cool place, cloudiness may occur due to fatty substances that do not represent a quality defect. Protect from light and heat. Once opened, store in the refrigerator and consume soon.
