Benefits and Use Of Almond Oil For Cooking

Why do I have refined almond oil in my kitchen?

  • It has a high smoke point making it great for stir-frying and sautéing. It is good for High Heat Up To 460F.
  • What I like about it is that it has a light, clean flavor that does not alter the taste of the foods I am using it to cook with.

 Nutritional Benefits Of Almond Oil

  • 50% of the oil is monounsaturated fatty acids
  • Rich in vitamin E and magnesium
  • It helps reduce blood cholesterol levels.

It is a lightweight oil extracted from sweet almond nuts. It has little odour with a faint, nutty scent.
