OUR WALNUT OIL
We perform a cold press on select nuts to extract 100% pure walnut oil. As the virgin walnut oil leaves the press, it is immediately bottled preserve aroma and healthy properties. We have different formats to cover all the preferences of our customers.
PROPERTIES OF WALNUT OIL
Walnut oil retains most of the properties raw nuts, but especially concentrates vitamin E which acts as an antioxidant helping to protect cells from free radical damage.
In addition, the very high concentration of monounsaturated fatty acids helps reduce LDL (“bad”) cholesterol level. Cholesterol is a soft, waxy substance that can cause blockages or blockages in the arteries. Keeping LDL levels low reduces the risk of heart disease and stroke.
Walnut oil also has high levels of omega-6 polyunsaturated acids that reduce the risk of heart disease by lowering “bad” cholesterol (LDL) levels, and increasing “good” cholesterol (HDL) levels. They also reduce the risk of cancer.
In addition, walnut oil contains the most omega-3 polyunsaturated acids of any non-animal food. Omega 3 acids improve the lipid profile, reduce blood pressure, increase arterial vasodilation, are antithrombotic and prevent arrhythmias and sudden death. Omega-3 acids prevent diseases such as obesity, type 2 diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis and certain types of cancer (there are studies that confirm that omega-3s reduce the risk of breast, colon, prostate and pancreatic cancer).
Walnut oil is especially interesting for people who follow a vegetarian or vegan diet because it allows them to take in an essential fatty acid usually only found in animal fats.
