Apricot kernel oil

While apricot kernel oil is yet relatively unknown in our part of the world, the excellent reputation it enjoys in other regions of the globe (e.g. southern Himalaya area, South Africa) goes back many centuries. The main reason for this popularity as an exquisite and many-sided cooking oil lies in its subtle flavor, reminiscent of fresh almonds and oven-baked bread. Pressed from the kernels of Turkish sweet apricots, the oil with its hint of marzipan is ideal for refining exotic salads, sweet-and-sour dishes, delicious soups, dips, gravy, and marinades, as much as for desserts and creative patisserie.

BIO PLANÈTE Apricot kernel oil comes in bottles of 100 milliliters.

The oil of Turkish sweet apricots Apricots rank among the oldest fruits in cultivation, which started in China approximately 4,000 years ago. Today, the province of Malatya in eastern Turkey, located on the upper length of the Euphrates, is globally regarded as the most renowned producing region. Only the kernels of particularly aromatic apricot varieties – such as Hacihaliloglu, Tokali, Hasanbey, and Sekerpare – find their way into our BIO PLANÈTE Apricot kernel oil.

All-natural and diligently cold pressed Ripened under the Turkish sun, the apricots are harvested in Malatya from June on. The fruits are laid out to dry for a few days, after which the stones are separated from the fruit and cracked. Subsequently, the carefully extracted kernels are first cold pressed in our mill. Through this gentle technique, the entire almond flavor is concentrated in our oil. BIO PLANÈTE exclusively uses natural, organic apricots, which have not been treated with sulphur.

A taste of nuts and almonds Many dishes greatly benefit from the nutty, almondy notes of this oil, with a hint of marzipan. Use apricot kernel oil in exciting culinary compositions, for example in combination with exotic dishes, venison and fish, sweet-piquant creations with pasta or rice, but also add a savory touch to crêpes, muesli, crèmes, fruit salads, and other desserts. Due to its light yellow color and its superb marzipan-like taste, BIO PLANÈTE Apricot kernel oil lends a brilliant fragrance to pastries and confectionery, for instance for persipan. Note: Apricot kernel oil should be heated only moderately.
