The Pautet variety hazelnut trees produce small-sized fruit renowned for:
- their richness of flavour,
- their nutritional qualities,
- their strength of fragrance,
- their high fatty acid content.
Excess water is reduced using a natural process in order to prevent oxidisation and contamination of the yeasts, which leads to the nuts and fruit going mouldy.
The seeds are crushed and slowly pressed using an endless screw in order to extract the oil in the first cold pressing process, without the use of heat.
The mechanically extracted oil is filtered several times once it comes out of the press to obtain a product that is as clear and bright as possible.
NB: A natural sterilising filtration process (porosity diameter: 0.2 microns) can be carried out on request to remove micro-organism residue.
Our hazelnut oil is preserved in a cold room out of sunlight. This storage method allows the intrinsic qualities of the oil to be preserved naturally.
Packed with flavours, hazelnut oil lends itself to many culinary adventures.
Virgin hazelnut oil is a natural antioxidant, recommended in skincare for its nourishing, healing and repairing qualities.
This oil can be packaged in very large volumes for industrial orders or by the kilo for one-off purchases and for workshops producing handcrafted goods. Contact us to find out more!
