The walnut tree:

Juglans regia is a 10-25 m high growing tree, with a smooth, light gray brown, when aged cracked bark. The crown is pretty wide and branched. First the unpaired feathered leaves are reddish after the sprouting and later green. The male flowers hang in long green catkins, the females hang in twos or threes at the ends of the branches. The fruits are one-seeded, globular stone fruits, which are surrounded by a smooth, green at first, later brown, tough-fleshy whitish dotted outer shell, and a rock-hard, woody, and wrinkled inner shell. The seed is 2-4-lobed and has large oil-rich germ layers.

How walnut oil refined is produced:

Walnut oil refined is extracted from the kernels of Walnut Juglans regia L. by mechanical cold pressing and filtration. Therefor the nuts are peeled and crushed to get the oil from the nuts. Through subsequent refining, unwanted substances and particles are filtered from the oil. This treatment makes the oil obtained longer, but it is a little more tasteless and smells neutral. Walnut oil refined is colorless to light yellow, has a mild nutty flavor.

We produce our walnut oil refined ourselves. We only use walnuts of very good quality. We press at least 99% pure and cleaned walnuts. That is why our walnut oil refined is of higher quality but also more expensive.


The refining process consists of the steps degumming, neutralization (only if the acid number is >4), bleaching (if the color values require it), deodorization (about 1.5h at 210°C.). The final stage of the refining process is thus the deodorizing, which is why the declaration of the walnut oil refined as "deodorized" would also be permissible and true. That is why we can provide our walnut oil with the attribute R = refined.
