How Is “Liquid Gold” Obtained?
Argan oil also known as the “Liquid gold” is found in the argan fruit. Coated with a hard cover that encloses the pulpy fruit which is usually fed to the goats. The only leftover product of the fruit is then the nut which has about 2 to 3 kernels which are later roasted well and pressed firmly along with some grinding to extract the unfiltered oil. The extraction of the oil from the kernels is a tedious process. It requires a lot of skill and right ways to ensure maximum and healthy extraction of the oil from the kernels without loss of the nutrient.
