Artisan Care: La Tourangelle handcrafts this Roasted Almond Oil in Woodland, California strictly following 150-year-old French traditional methods because we believe artisan care is still the best way to retain all the flavors, nutrients and health benefits that nature provides.
A well-kept secret: La Tourangelle roasted almond oil adds a subtle almond taste to any dish and gives a fresh touch to your meal, transforming the ordinary into exta-ordinary. The oil reveals subtle nuances when combined with other ingredients. Its delicate character makes it a good substitute for olive oil. When combined with any salad, fish or vegetable dish, almond oil helps to fashion a gourmet meal.


Usage: La Tourangelle Roasted Almond oil is a popular addition to cookies, cakes, shortbread… it is absolutely wonderful on all baked goods. Roasted Almond oil is a subtle, unique, fresh addition to seasoning, dressings, sauces and marinades. It suits pasta, potatoes, beans, chicken, duck perfectly. It is spectacular with all greens (green bean, radish, artichoke, lettuce).

Health Benefits: Almonds are clearly good for you. Almond oil or almond milk is used in almost all cosmetic products. Rich in vitamins E, B and P, almond oil contains high levels of monounsaturated fatty acid (like olive oil), but it usually also has a decent amount of linoleic fatty acid. This balance makes for a very healthy oil that will help to protect your heart and fight against bad cholesterol.

Heat: Medium-high heat

Taste: Subtle flavor—slightly sweet, roasted, and nutty.
