Extraction Process of Chilean Hazelnut Seed Oil

The extraction process of Hazelnut Oil involves several steps to obtain the oil from the seeds. First, the hazelnut seeds are collected from the trees and carefully cleaned to remove any impurities. Once cleaned, the seeds are dried to reduce their moisture content. After drying, the seeds are crushed or ground into smaller pieces to increase the surface area for oil extraction.
Mechanical pressing is then used to apply pressure and squeeze out the oil from the crushed seeds. The extracted oil is then filtered to remove any solid particles or impurities, improving its clarity and purity. It is allowed to settle to separate any remaining sediments or water. Finally, the extracted seed oil is stored in suitable containers to protect it from light, heat and air. This extraction process ensures the production of high-quality hazelnut oil, which can be used for various purposes including culinary, cosmetic, and medicinal applications.
