The main characteristics of our stunning infused oils reside in the quality of herbs we are using.
They are all cultivated in France with an extreme attention to their aromas from an experienced and five generation family-owned grower.
From those very fresh herbs, we infuse organic expeller-pressed high-oleic sunflower to allow an easy-to-use oils just as good for salad dressing as high-heat cooking. Usually infused oils are done with olive oil which limits the application to cold or low-medium heat cooking and overwhelms other flavors. La Tourangelle choose organic high-oleic sunflower oil making the cooking possibilities endless.

This oil is suitable for medium-high heat. Smoke point: 500°F.
However, the flavor will evaporate when heated.
If you want to keep the whole flavor of the basil, it is better to use in cold application (salad, finishing, spread, sauce, dips…)

Cool, dark place. Refrigerate for maximum shelf life.
