Casablanca Market Moroccan Organic Culinary Argan Oil, Glass Bottle
Discover the exotic and flavorful taste of authentic Moroccan Argan Oil from Casablanca Market. Our Argan Oil is derived from the Argan trees that exclusively grow in the arid Moroccan desert strip between Marrakesh and Essaouira. These trees can endure harsh conditions, where other trees fail, and the process of extracting the oil is highly labor-intensive. Female farmworkers manually remove the fruit from the thorny tree branches, extract the kernel, and produce the precious oil. It takes approximately 15 hours of labor to produce one liter of Argan oil, which is why we are proud to support the native female workers who work tirelessly to make this nutty-flavored culinary delight.
At Casablanca Market, we are passionate about providing our customers with authentic, high-quality products that support the well-being of our communities. Explore our selection of Argan Oil and taste the unique flavors of Morocco.

Argan Oil Care:
Store in a cool, dark place: Like other oils, culinary Argan oil should be stored in a cool, dark place to prevent it from going rancid. A pantry or kitchen cabinet away from direct sunlight is ideal.
Use quickly: Culinary Argan oil has a shorter shelf life than cosmetic Argan oil, so it's important to use it within 6-12 months of opening the bottle.
Keep the bottle sealed: After each use, make sure the bottle is sealed tightly to prevent air and moisture from getting in.
Avoid high temperatures: Culinary Argan oil should not be heated to high temperatures, as this can destroy its flavor and nutritional benefits. Instead, it's best used as a finishing oil or added to dishes after they are cooked.
Don't mix with other oils: Culinary Argan oil has a unique nutty flavor, and mixing it with other oils can dilute its flavor and aroma.
Add to salads, soups, and dips: Culinary Argan oil is delicious when used as a finishing oil on salads, soups, and dips. It can also be used as a dip for bread or drizzled on roasted vegetables.
