Almonds are clearly good for you. Almond oil or almond milk is used in almost all cosmetic products. Rich in vitamins E, B and P, almond oil contains high levels of monounsaturated fatty acid (like olive oil), but it usually also has a decent amount of linoleic fatty acid. This balance makes for a very healthy oil that will help to protect your heart and fight against bad cholesterol.
The process of extracting the oil has not changed for centuries. Almonds are first ground and slowly roasted to perfection in cast-iron kettles, then expeller-pressed and lightly filtered. The resulting warm paste is then pressed in a hydraulic press. Following mechanical extraction, the oil is lightly filtered and bottled. The leftover cake is sold as cattle feed or for use in bakeries.
La Tourangelle Almond oil is suitable for medium-high heat.
