Infused richly with oleic acid, Hazelnut oil is a clear, yellowish brown with an extremely nutty smell and taste. Usually pressed from pulverized hazelnuts (oil content 50-60%) (cold-pressed hazelnut oil), it is termed as virgin hazelnut oil.

The bulk of hazelnut is either consumed in crude form or grinded in the form of baking ingredient or a chocolate additive, in confectionery and ice cream. Though commonly used for cooking and in salad dressings, hazelnut has enormous usage in the health & wellness industry. It finds excellent usage in hair care as well as a carrier oil for aromatherapy or massage oils.

Fatty Acid Composition

Roasted hazelnut oil's sweet taste and distinctive aroma make it a desirable ingredient in the kitchen. It is very versatile on the kitchen table is used in a large variety of salad dressings, particularly vinaigrettes, and works wonderfully with citrus fruits, raspberries, and other naturally sweet foods. Hazelnut oil is excellent for wellness and can be used to lubricate the skin during massage therapy sessions. Since it easily penetrates the skin tissue, it also acts as a moisturizer and ensures that the skin remains soft and elastic. If used during massage, it softens the skin- while also extending the calming benefits.

Process of Hazelnut oil Refining

After being extracted from seeds, hazelnut oil is obtained through a multi-stage process in a hazelnut refinery that can be a physical or chemical process, but only the physical process is beneficial due to high FFA. This helps attain the desired qualities like taste, texture, and color after the elimination of unwanted substances.

The multi-stage hazelnut oil refining process is as follows:


Degumming is the process of removing phospholipids. The latter are major impurities as they can lead to darker-colored oil that tastes off-flavor. Degumming is undertaken concurrently to improve its physical stability and facilitate further refining. The process eliminates phosphatides, pigments, and other impurities. Mectech customizes degumming processes based on methods of processing, chemicals used, and the content of phosphatides in crude vegetable oil to achieve optimum results.

Continuous Bleaching

Hazelnut Bleaching, in a hazelnut refinery, is carried out with acid treatment followed by mixing of Bleaching clay which helps to eliminate the Trace metals, dirt, color pigments, phospholipids, polycyclic aromatic compounds, and numerous other impurities are which are partially present in degummed oil for detail, contact us...

Deacidification and Deodorization

Deodorization increases the oil's flavor and oxidative stability by nearly complete removal of FFA and other volatile odor and flavor materials, through partial removal.

Mectech has developed a unique design of deodorizer for the hazelnut oil refining process to reduce the FFA content from 20 % to 0.1% by keeping valuable nutrients intact in the oil for more information contact us.
