High-quality edible oil obtained from unroasted, blanched organic sweet almonds (Prunus dulcis) by gentle cold pressing. Its high content of healthy contents materials, as for example the monounsaturated fatty acid oil acid, makes it particularly valuable. The substitution of saturated fatty acids with unsaturated fatty acids in the diet is proven to support maintenance of normal cholesterol level in the blood. Almond oil is characterised by a clear, light yellow colour and a subtle nutty, mild flavour, which makes it the ideal base for dressings and marinades. It is also ideal for the preparation of salads, raw vegetables, baked goods, muesli, desserts, light foods as well as baby and infant food.
