Argan oil – both food source and wellbeing support
The authenticity of Argan oil starts in the very beginning of the production process. The endless lines of perennial evergreen Argan trees grow exclusively in the Moroccan semi-fields, where the native Berber women follow the ancient traditions in order to preserve all benefits of the oil. Because the making process is particularly long and physically heavy, the skilled handiwork of these women is an essential part to ensure authenticity in every drop of the oil.
The Berber women start by picking and drying Argan fruits, then manually peel and crack the nuts within to obtain the kernels and finally gently roast before pressing them. Because of the careful and patient process, the extracted oil saves all the necessary nutrients to serve both as a nutritious food source and multifunctional wellbeing support. While the cosmetic Argan oil does not have any particular fragrance, the edible one is produced by a slightly different method by roasting the kernels, which enriches the oil with a beautiful golden colour and nutty aroma and flavour. There is no question why this unique oil has been widely used in Moroccan cuisine from the earliest of days. Today, after being introduced into Western cuisine as a luxury product, it has received recognition from the top gourmets as it continuously travels to more destinations around world.
One tablespoon of Argan oil a day is a great way to support your health!
