Packed with antioxidants, argan oil has become recognized worldwide as a highly coveted superfood. Hand-pressed from organic argan nuts, Auzoud Certified Organic Culinary Argan Oil has been toasted to produce a slightly nutty flavor with exceptional aroma. Use in place of other oils on couscous, vegetables, salads, meats and seafood. Our argan oil is ethically sourced from a women-founded cooperative that guarantees fair wages and sustainable practices to protect the argan forests of southwestern Morocco. Many argan sources, both inside and outside of Morocco, use illegal deforestation and contribute to degradation of the argan tree. To better safeguard and sustain this endemic tree, this cooperative sources their argan oil from a monitored and protected UNESCO world heritage site.
