Ente plums are harvested upon reaching maturity between mid-August and mid-September:
- Their skins have a characteristic colour of purple tinged with blue.
- Their honey coloured flesh is deliciously sweet and juicy and they possess excellent antioxidant properties.
The numerous cosmetic and nutritional properties of this organic oil make it an essential basic ingredient for enhancing culinary creations and enriching certified organic beauty products.
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.
The prune stone oil is preserved in a cold room out of sunlight. This storage method allows the intrinsic qualities of the oil to be preserved naturally.
Its intense natural almond flavour could classify it as a natural aroma.
