Our oil is produced from the Franquette variety of walnuts, grown exclusively in the Aquitaine region.
This oil is characterised by its richness in essential fatty acids (notably OMEGA 3) which contribute to maintaining a healthy cardiovascular system.
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.
Virgin Walnut Oil is stored in a cold room out of sunlight. This storage method allows the intrinsic qualities of the oil to be preserved naturally.
With its authentic flavour of fresh walnuts, this oil can be used as a natural food flavouring.
Obtained from the first cold press, this oil is renowned for its numerous cosmetic properties: skin moisturising, high antioxidant vitamin E content, skin repair effect.
