Almond oil, not to be confused with almond essential oil, is a vegetable oil pressed from almonds.

Characteristics edit

Almond oil is light yellow with a mild, nutty flavor. It is rich in monounsaturated fats and vitamin E.

Varieties edit

Almond oil comes in two primary types. Cold-pressed and unrefined oil is flavorful but does not work well for high-heat cooking—as such, it is better as a "finishing" oil.[1] Refined almond oil has a higher smoke point and can be used in cooking.

Selection and storage edit

Like all oils, almond oil should be kept in a cool dark place to prevent rancidity and the development of off flavors.

Use edit

As a finishing oil, almond oil can be used for salads and dishes that are finished cooking such as pasta. People with nut allergies should avoid almond oil.
