Roasted Walnut Infused Olive Oil

Roasted Walnut Infused Olive Oil

from 5.00

Our handcrafted, Roasted Walnut Oil is made in Saumur, France strictly following 150 year-old traditional methods. Slowly roasted to perfection, then expeller-pressed and lightly filtered.

Walnut oil is oil extracted from English walnuts (also known as Persian walnuts). Each 100.0g of oil provides about 63.3g polyunsaturated fatty acids, 22.8g monounsaturated fats, and 9.1g saturated fats. It contains no cholesterol. It is about 60% linoleic acid, an essential polyunsaturated omega-6 fatty acid, and 23-27% monounsaturated oleic acid, an omega-9 fatty acid. Walnut oil also contains about 0.7g per Tbsp (or 1.5g per 100g) of alpha linolenic acid, which supplies the body with needed omega-3 fatty acids, another form of polyunsaturated fats essential to human nutrition.
