ALMOND OIL, refined


Art.-No. 747xx

(xx = packing index)

Origin and production: Refined Almond Oil is won from the ripe, shell-free seeds of the almond tree (Prunus amygdalus L.) by mechanical pressing of selected kernels and subsequent refining. The kernels contain 40 - 50 % fatty oil. Refined Almond Oil is a light yellow clear, viscous liquid of characteristic mild odour and taste. Main cultivating countries of the almond tree are the USA (California) and to a minor extent Spain.
