Preparation of our oil

The elaboration process for this delicate extra virgin tiger nut oil starts by carrying out different analysis and by selecting the best tiger nuts manually.

These tiger nuts, once prepared, are peeled and scraped to eliminate their skin. The next step, a hammer mill grinds the tiger nuts until they are converted into very thin flour. This flour is placed in big crates and taken to the pressing machine room.

The flour is placed on top of circular nylon strainers, one after another, until they form a large pile of approximately two meters high.

When this laborious task, which takes hours, is finished, the tower is placed on the press where it is compacted to half its length to give space for another round of flour.

Once the second round is fitted, the tower is again placed in the press. Gradually, the flour is compressed while tiny drops of oil emerge from the inside of the tower.

The small drops of oil gradually convert into streams of extra virgin tiger nut oil that fall slowly down the tower. Before the bottling process, the oil is filtered using three special paper sheets.

Preparation of our oil

The oil is carefully poured in a barrel and is quickly taken to the bottling room. The Italian design bottles pass through the machinery, which sticks labels on them, and are then filled manually by specialized personnel.

Finally, the bottles are sealed with our characteristic bronze tops, and then thermo-sealed with a plastic layer to protect them.
