Walnut Oil

Our premium walnut oil is cold-pressed exclusively from selected sun-ripened walnuts from California to ensure that all the rich flavors and valuable nutrients are retained. With its delicious nutty flavor, this oil will add a distinctive touch to your dishes and, besides, is an excellent source of essential omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants and vitamins.

Sesame Oil

Small grains, big effect: Sesame oil is considered the oldest edible oil in the world. With a fat content of 40 to 50%, it is a very healthy fat supplier and thus a good additive in the food sector. The oil plant is grown in many tropical countries around the world and as always, we source our seeds responsibly and transparently.
