Hazelnut is not only irresistibly delicious, but also extremely rich in macro and micro nutrients (proteins, oils, vitamins and minerals). Hazelnut kernels are a mandatory ingredient in healthy eating diets.
In terms of fatty acid composition, it is similar to extra virgin olive oil (high content of omega-9 and omega-6 fatty acids), so it is also an excellent edible oil.
Cold pressed hazelnut oil has a beautiful golden yellow color, pleasant aroma and fine sweet taste.
Thanks to these properties, it is also valued as a spice oil in cooking, but its most famous application is in cosmetics and the pharmaceutical industry.
Large amounts of vitamin E in cold-pressed hazelnut oil have brought the title of unsurpassed “protective factor” and elixir of youth in cosmetics, especially in the preservation, care and renewal of the skin after the age of forty.

Countless scientific studies have proven to us that nature offers excellent solutions, we just need to know how to use them. The astonishing synergy of plant substances cannot yet be achieved by artificially produced substances, and to believe that we could do without nature would be a great misconception. Plants have naturally developed a large number of phyto-protective substances or phytonutrients that help them cope with fungal and bacterial infections and allow them to overcome daily stresses. If we eat plant foods, we also consume certain active and protective micro and macro elements that play a significant role in the prevention of various types of diseases and health protection.
