Our organic argan oil is made from the tasty nuts of a local tree from Morocco. The organically grown nuts are traditionally cracked by Berber women and gently roasted before being cold-pressed in small spindle presses. The "liquid gold" from Morocco is rich in unsaturated fatty acids and a valuable source of vitamin E.
Argan oil from roasted argan almonds has a very aromatic, nutty taste that reminds of sesame, pine nuts and walnuts. This special flavour is perfect for salads and hearty dishes as well as for desserts with ice cream or yogurt.
Traditional Moroccan production processes
Nowadays, the characterisitc argan tree can only be found on 820 000 hectares in southwest Morocco. In 1998, it was declared a biosphere reserve. The argan nut produces a golden, aromatic nutty-hearty oil that is appreciated as edible oil and in skin care alike. It truly deserves its nickname, "liquid gold" from Morocco. According to Moroccan tradition, the argan nuts are picked and processed by women.
For Ölmühle Solling, preserving the traditional cultivation and oil craftmanship is a matter of the heart. Therefore, we purchase our organic virgin argan oil from a small manufactory near Agadir which supports women's cooperatives in Essaouira and Ait Baamrame/Sidi Ifni. This creates urgently needed jobs on site.
