Argan Oil

· Virgin ·
100 ml

The argan tree with its wide spreading, shady crown is one of the oldest trees in the world. Today it grows only in southwestern Morocco and is protected by UNESCO. Argan Oil is known from natural cosmetics and is also traditionally used as food.

Together with our Moroccan trading partner, we support the care and reforestation of argan trees. They not only curb further desert encroachment, but also guarantee local women a secure income. The so-called Berber women open the seeds of the argan fruits in traditional manual labour. The two to three oily almonds contained are then gently cold pressed once. About 35 kilogrammes of fruit are needed for one litre of Argan Oil, which is why it is one of the most expensive oils in the world. 

Recipe ideas and use of Virgin Argan Oil

Virgin Argan Oil may be heated and is suitable for baking. In Europe, Argan Oil is considered a gourmet oil for sophisticated gastronomy, on a par with caviar and truffles. The mildly nutty oil gives salads, vegetable dishes and desserts an authentic, oriental touch.

You can also try the Toasted Argan Oil and Virgin Almond Oil.
