Focus On: Oleic-Acid - Omega 9: Unlike the 3’s and 6’s, Omega-9 fats are not “essential” fatty acids. That means that you don’t need to get them in your diet – if your body needs them, it can make its own. Oleic acid, one of the component of Omega 9, is a monounsaturated fat found in olive oil and hazelnut oil. It’s been studied as the fat behind the unique health benefits of those oils and the Mediterranean miracle.

The process of extracting the oil has not changed for centuries. Hazelnuts are first ground and slowly roasted to perfection in cast-iron kettles, then expeller-pressed and lightly filtered. The resulting warm paste is then pressed in a hydraulic press. Following mechanical extraction, the oil is lightly filtered and bottled. The leftover cake is sold as cattlefeed or for use in bakeries.
