Roasted oils to enjoy

The cold season has arrived - bringing with it a sense of cosiness. We bring out candles and cosy blankets and try our hand at making confectionery in the kitchen. Walnuts, almonds and hazelnuts ought to feature. And BIO PLANÈTE nut oils too of course. Since delicious gourmet oils not only spread a wonderful, homely atmosphere with their intense aromas, they have also long been considered a superfood.

Variety: The perfume in your kitchen

Special varieties, selected raw materials and gentle roasting & pressing processes are the secret of our aromatic oil variety. Depending on your preference, choose from oils made using pumpkin seeds, argan fruits as well as hazelnuts, almonds, peanuts and walnuts. We obtain our raw materials from partners all over the world, with whom we have been working in a trusting relationship for many years. Some of the nuts are also grown as part of Fairtrade projects. 

Try out the oils for yourself and discover your favourites - we have filled the gourmet oils into small bottles especially for this purpose.
 

Virgin or roasted? A matter of taste...

When almonds and nuts are pressed without heat, cold-pressed oils are produced. Cold-pressed oils that have not been pre or post-treated are called virgin oils. This particularly gentle processing preserves the taste, vitamins and valuable unsaturated fatty acids. For example, lovers of Virgin Apricot Kernel Oil particularly like the nutty almond taste with a hint of marzipan. Virgin Walnut Oil is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, and Virgin Peanut Oil is particularly high in vitamin E. 

To increase the inherent flavour of the almonds and nuts, we gently roast them in a pan before pressing. Our experienced roasting masters pay special attention to optimal roasting time and roasting temperature for each raw material in order to preserve the valuable ingredients. The results are unique taste nuances: our Roasted Hazelnut Oil, for example, exudes an intense nougat aroma and also contains a lot of vitamin E, while our Roasted Argan Oil gives dishes a slightly smoky, oriental touch.  

 

Caution when heating 

Due to the high content of polyunsaturated fatty acids and vitamins, most nut oils should not be heated. For example, both virgin and roasted Walnut Oil are high in omega-3 fatty acids. These are very sensitive and can be destroyed, for example, by reaction with oxygen or by heat. 

Virgin and roasted Walnut Oil as well as virgin and roasted Argan Oil are therefore particularly suitable for cold cooking and should not be heated. 

However, there are exceptions. Virgin and roasted Almond Oil, Hazelnut Oil and Virgin Apricot Kernel Oil are wonderful for baking, and virgin and roasted Peanut Oil are also ideal frying oils.

The almond - nut or drupe?

What do you think? Is an almond a nut? The answer is: no.
Strictly speaking, almond trees belong to the rose family. Botanists describe almonds as the kernels of a fruit, because the structure of the drupe is different from that of the nut.

The drupe consists of a soft shell surrounding the wooden stone core. Inside it, in turn, is the seed, the actual almond.

Whether it is a nut or not depends on the number of woody layers of the fruit. Nuts have more wooden layers. 

Since the almond is very similar in character to the nut, you will find the Virgin Almond Oil and the Toasted Almond Oil in the category of nut oils.

Waste a bit of your time!

Superfood - that’s why nuts are so healthy

Nut oils are considered as true superfood, because they often contain a variety of polyunsaturated fatty acids and vitamins. 

Walnut Oil is an example: Walnut Oil is rich in vitamin E as well as unsaturated fatty acids. The omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids are even in an ideal ratio of 5:1. These so-called essential fatty acids cannot be produced by the human body itself, so they must be ingested through food. As a rule, fish is a good choice, for example, or even selected vegetable oils. Additional information on the subject of “polyunsaturated fatty acids” can be found here

Both the linoleic acid (omega-6) and alpha-linolenic acid (omega-3) in walnut oil help maintain normal blood cholesterol levels. The fat-soluble vitamin E also protects our body’s own cells from oxidative stress.
