Valuable Walnut Oil
If you have stumbled across our 100% Organic Walnut Oil as the brand new product on our webpage, you might have asked yourself: How do I use Walnut Oil? Why even use it?
Besides its mild, delicate taste, adding a great nutty flavor to your dish, walnut oil is used for its health benefits, above all for its exceedingly high amount of polyunsaturated fatty acids. In fact, walnut oil contains up to 73% of polyunsaturated fatty acids, among which 10% are Omega-3-fatty acids. These are considered essential to maintenance of health. As your body does not produce them, Omega-3-fatty acids must be absorbed through your daily diet. Sprinkling our organic walnut oil over your dish is one way to satisfy parts of your needs of Omega-3-fatty acids as well as vitamin B1, B2 and B6. Dr. Oz, who considers himself a great fan of walnuts and walnut oil, points to the fact that walnuts might also help reduce stress, referring to a 2010 study in the journal of the American College of Nutrition.

Cold press to preserve nutrients
The fact that all the valuable nutrients are preserved in our walnut oil is due to our method of cold press that we apply in the oil making process. As we only use our raw, 100% organic dry-farmed walnuts instead of roasted walnuts, the final product is of yellow-gold color and tastes super mild. Due to its light taste, it makes a great ingredient in any desserts. What else can you use it for?
If you want to preserve the high nutritive value not only during the pressing process but also during preparation and consumption, keep in mind to use medium or low heat. High temperature cooking will destroy the essential nutrients. Walnut oil is at its most valuable when used as finishing oil in cold dishes, dips or salads.
