La Tourangelle is an authentic and traditional producer of specialty oils, handcrafting a wide range of delicious artisan nut oils both in California and France. La Tourangelle nut oils sold in North America are made in an artisan mill located in Woodland, CA following the 150-year-old methods of its French sister oil mill.
Driven by passion for the best nut oils, La Tourangelle has established partnership with handpicked selection of like-minded high quality oil producers, chosen to bring you the best artisan oils from around the world. Whether it’s pumpkinseed oil from Austria, sesame oil from Japan or Fairtrade virgin coconut oil from the Philippines, La Tourangelle only works with oil makers who share its belief in respecting nature, fruits and the people handling them. La Tourangelle is multifaceted: local and global, organic and Fairtrade, Californian and French – but always driven by passion to bring you the best possible artisan oils from around the world.
I was first introduced to La Tourangelle last summer at the Summer Fancy Food Show and recently had the chance to try another one of their high quality oils.
Organic Gourmet Super Food – La Tourangelle has created a unique, 100% organic blend to get the best of both worlds: gourmet food & supplement. The Organic Amazonian Nutriblend™ could be considered a supplement oil thanks to its high level of vitamin E and omega 3. The blend has yummy, nutty aromas and earthy undertones and by using it daily, you will benefit from essential nutrients. It is made with a blend of Organic Virgin Sacha Inchi Oil, Organic High Oleic Sunflower Oil, Organic Refined Coconut Oil, and Organic Sesame Seed Oil.
The Organic Amazonian Nutriblend™ is an excellent source of the anti-oxidant Vitamin E providing 20% of the FDA’s recommended daily intake. Contains 2.70g of Omega 3 to compensate for the low intake of omega 3 in the western diet (omega 3 is important in the prevention of heart disease). These natural and vegetable nutrients are particularly desirable in vegan and vegetarian diet. The Sacha Inchi seeds produce a rare and exceptional virgin oil. It is really considered as a super food by nutritionists.
The Organic Amazonian Nutriblend™ is suitable for medium-high heat, with a smoke point of 375°F. It is ideal for cooking boosted breakfasts, smoothies, vegan and vegetarian dishes. For the meat-eater, it pairs very well as a finishing oil with beef and poultry.
La Tourangelle has also enjoyed tremendous growth in the past year and is the 8th largest cooking oil brand in the U.S. as well as the fastest growing! Tasty classics at the booth will be, Avocado Oil, Sesame Oil, Extra Virgin Olive Oil and the newest super oil to be added to the collection, Amazonian Nutriblend Oil, a super oil known for its sacha inchi oil ingredient, omega threes and its ability to double as a supplement.
The La Tourangelle mill and warehouse does not process anything that contains gluten, such as wheat or grains. They process only nut or seed based oils, thus no gluten enters our production. They are in the process to obtain the certification.
You can purchase The Organic Amazonian Nutriblend™ online via amazon for $13/bottle or directly from La Tourangelle website ($14.99). You can also purchase these oils in health food stores throughout the country. Click here to find a store location nearest you.
