Benefits of Cooking with Pecan Oil
Kinloch Pecan Oil is expeller pressed - meaning a chemical free, completely mechanical process. Most oils, with the exception of olive oil, are extracted with the use of chemical solvents that are later evaporated from the oil in the refining process. For many health food advocates, there is always the lingering question of possible chemical residue leftover from the extraction process. Our Pecan Oil is 100% Pecan Oil. There are no additives, preservatives or stabilizers added at any point in the refining process. Kinloch Pecan Oil has been deodorized to provide for a neutral flavor and has been winterized so that it can be stored in the refrigerator without clouding or thickening.
Cooking with pecan oil is healthy and delicious. Pecan oil contains good fats which are known to help reduce bad cholesterol levels. In fact, it has over 90% unsaturated fatty acids (50% monounsaturated and 40% polyunsaturated).
A high smoke point of 470 degrees allows for great sautéing, brazing, and stir frying and the ability to brown meats without burning.
Use as a butter substitute for healthy cooking; with a small amount of butter added the flavor of the original recipe will be preserved.
And, Kinloch Pecan Oil is a great oil base for your favorite salad dressing recipe. The mild, light flavor lets the taste of your foods shine through.
Pecan oil is extracted from pecan kernels and can be used for cooking, as a carrier oil with essential oils or in cosmetics.
