· Toasted ·
This exquisite gourmet oil is pressed from sweet, gently roasted almonds. An experienced roasting master takes care of the optimal temperature and duration in order to maintain the valuable ingredients and the fine taste of the high-quality almond kernels. Almond Oil is also nutritionally valuable due to its high vitamin E content. Vitamin E helps to protect the cells from oxidative stress.
It is important to maintain a varied and balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle.
Recipe ideas and use of Toasted Almond Oil
Toasted Almond Oil may be heated and is suitable for baking as well as steaming and cooking. It gives a wonderful aroma to pastries and desserts in particular, but also to salads, sauces and marinades. It is one of the few roasted gourmet oils that is also ideal for baking. Replacing some of the oil or fat specified in a recipe - butter, for example - with Toasted Almond Oil gives the cake a particularly delicate flavour.

Where does the vitamin E come from? Was it added to the oils artificially?
Vitamin E occurs naturally in cold-pressed cooking oils because the plants make this vitamin and, due to its chemical properties, it passes to the cooking oil during cold pressing. Incidentally, the following are especially high in vitamin E: natural Sunflower Oil, natural Safflower Oil and natural or roasted Almond Oil.
What conditions and standards are behind the organic seal on our oils?
An organic seal is a quality and test seal with which products from organic farming are marked. In 2010, a binding new organic seal was introduced throughout the EU, also known as the EU organic logo, which identifies food from organic farming (a star-shaped leaf on a green background).
This seal replaced the German state organic seal (green hexagon with "BIO" lettering), which had existed since 2001, with the same standards in terms of content. Due to the high degree of popularity of its predecessor, both seals are still often used today.
The use of this certification is strictly regulated by the publisher and is subject to ecological requirements. Compliance with the criteria by producers is ensured by a documentation obligation as well as regular sampling and examination of product samples. Compliance with the regulations is monitored in Europe by the responsible Eco-Control bodies.
Foods labelled with the organic seal must, among other things:
• Not be produced by or with/from genetically modified organisms
• Not to be produced with the use of synthetic pesticides
• Contain no more than 5% conventionally produced components (in exceptional cases, if ingredients are not available in ecological quality, in accordance with Annex VO)
• not contain sweeteners and stabilisers as well as synthetic colourants, preservatives and flavour enhancers
• not result from monotonous crop rotations (two-, three- and four-field farming)
• and much more: more information on the EU Organic Label
Can I use the oil even after the expiration date?
We can no longer guarantee the oil's perfect quality after its best before date.
In the interest of sustainability, however, we would like to point out the following: vegetable oils do not belong to the group of very sensitive foodstuffs and can usually still be consumed after the best-before date. This is especially true if the bottle is still sealed and it has been stored away from heat sources. Therefore, we recommend using your senses to test the oil before disposing of it. Oil that has been stored for too long can be easily recognized by smell and taste. If it tastes rancid or unusual (off), it should not be consumed.
How do I remove the labels from the jars and bottles?
Since we use oil-soluble glue for the labels, the best way to remove the label from the coconut jars is with oil. Simply coat the label with oil, let it absorb overnight and peel off easily in the morning. However, if the label is already off and only the glue is on it, this method doesn't work as well. In this context, we have been told of positive experiences with orange oil cleaner, such as from AlmaWin or Sodasan. Another option is a hair dryer - because heat also loosens the label well.
