№ 12 Hazelnut Oil




Hazelnut oil is made by pressing the oil from hazelnuts.

Hazelnut cooking oil has a similar composition to extra virgin olive oil—a high content of omega-9 (78%).  A balanced intake of omega-3 and omega-6 fats along with a high level of omega-9 fats help reduce the risk of cardiovascular related disease.

It’s remix ranking is #12, in large part for its high level of MUFAs.

It has an intense flavor—slightly sweet, roasted, and nutty.

Best Uses

Hazelnut oil is a popular addition to cookies, cakes, and other baked goods.  It adds a rich, nutty flavor to sauces and salad dressings.  Works well with Italian dishes.  It’s usually combined with more mildly-flavored oils so as not to overpower the other flavors in the dish.
