The production process of the Grapoila oils means a special Zero Waste concept where all the created by-products are made use of and further processed, instead of letting them waste. One of the byproducts is the nutritious dry material, the pellets, that are milled, sieved and sold as seed flours. Another valuable press residue is the oil mud forming during the settlement of the oil. The thick oil mud is worth not to waste: due to its high cold-pressed oil content and the fine microparts of the nuts, it is rich in essential fatty acids, vitamins, minerals and fiber as well as in vegan protein. Hazelnuts are rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids, vitamins and minerals, such as potassium, calcium, phosphor. They are high in Vitamin E (antioxidant effect), and in vegan protein. Hazelnut butter has the natural, concentrated taste of hazelnuts, it is a delicacy on itself, but they can be used creatively in the kitchen.
It is 100 % natural, has no additives, preservatives, coloring agents. It is a great raw material for fillings and stuffing (bakery products or meat), sauces, creams and dips. It can be further seasoned and combined by taste when used for baking and cooking, or just simply used on itself by adding to shakes and smoothies, or topping sandwiches, deserts or salads. Even a tasty, healthy, nutritious version of the commercial hazelnut cream can be made of the Grapoila cold-pressed hazelnut butter, which is made 100% of real hazelnuts! The Grapoila hazelnut butter is a gluten free product fitting well and safely in vegan, vegetarian, gluten free and paleo lit diets. Organic version also available.
