Benefits of organic virgin oils

Firstly, this organically-farmed raw material contains no (or an infinitely small amount of) chemical residues from fertilisers and pesticides, and offers an optimal level of nutrients.

Second, the “virgin” designation guarantees that the oil is obtained only by mechanical methods and has not been chemically treated or refined.
As for the term “cold first pressed” (the first word is vital!), it ensures that the seeds or fruits have not been heated during pressing – so their nutritional value stays intact.

Emma Noël’s production method is therefore mechanical only. Organic seeds are cold-pressed in slow-turning screw presses. Once the solids have settled, the juice is filtered through blotting paper.

Made with painstaking passion with respect for artisanal tradition, our cold first pressed virgin oils retain all the value of their fatty acids and vitamins. Natural and authentic, they deliver the flavour and finesse of their fruit or seed.
