Soak up the goodness of almonds, inside and out, with Flora Almond Oil. This unique blend is cold-pressed from Spanish almonds and provides a boost to health, thanks to essential fatty acids (EFAs), and skin, as it makes an excellent moisturizer. Whether adding it to a favorite recipe (think salad oil, pastries, or homemade granola), or using it as a massage oil, Flora Almond Oil is an ideal natural source of health and beauty.
When oil begins to smoke it starts to breakdown, the process is called thermal oxidation. The smoke indicates that carcinogens are being released into the air and free radicals are forming in the oil. Oil that begins to smoke should ideally be discarded and replaced with fresh oil for optimal health and taste. Beware of highly processed supermarket oils. They are made with a long shelf life in mind, rather than considerations of dietary health.
Know your fats!
Excellent as a gourmet salad dressing, it also lends a delicate flavor to home baked pastries, sweets, and granola. Delicious over oatmeal or yogurt. These culinary oils are unrefined and unfiltered. Given their delicate nature, they have a very low smoke point and should be used with little or no heat to truly appreciate their sublime flavor. They are best used during the last few minutes of cooking or as a final accent drizzled over a favorite dish. Store at room temperature.
