Pistachio nut oil has a stronger flavor compared with other nut oils. Rich in oleic and linoleic acids as well as vitamin E, our bulk pistachio oil is used throughout the world in both food and skin care applications.
California is one of the top pistachio growing regions in the world, and the American Pistachio Growers are focused on maintaining a healthy supply and ecosystem. Recent efforts include increasing yields while reducing water consumption, enlisting the help of natural predators to manage pests, and hyper-vigilant farming practices to ensure that only necessary interventions are taken at just the right time.
At Caloy, we take great care throughout the extraction and refining process to ensure our refined nut oils are the highest quality. Our state-of-the-art expeller press gently extracts the oils from only the best California-grown pistachios.
This yellow to green-yellow oil is a favorite for adding a delicious nutty essence to foods like steamed vegetables and in sauces and vinaigrettes. Other uses include adding to cookies and other pastries to add a delightful nutty essence, drizzled over pasta, or to add a finishing touch to creamy soups.
This hearty oil is practically insoluble in water and has a high antioxidant capacity, adding stability to beauty and personal care formulations. As with other nut oils rich in vitamin E, pistachio oil fights free radicals, helps reduce inflammation, and helps soothe dry skin.
Pistachio nut oil is the refined fatty oil obtained from the shelled nuts of Pistacia vera L.
