Edible Argan Oil
ESSAOUIRA’s Edible Argan Oil is the same 100% pure, cold-pressed, extra virgin oil as used for cosmetic purposes. However, to create the edible oil, the kernels from the argan nut are roasted prior to extraction. The resulting culinary oil has been a staple of the Berber diet for generations. The flavor is robust and nutty and scientific research has uncovered numerous health benefits due to the exceptionally high concentrations of Vitamin E, Omega 3 fatty acids and anti-oxidants.
