Oil extraction: The result is a pure and powerful oil

Coriander is an undemanding plant that now grows throughout Europe, India, China, Japan, the USA and Argentina.

The cultivation of coriander is becoming increasingly important due to the high proportion of petroselinic acid in coriander seeds.

The fatty oil, and in particular the petroselinic acid, can be obtained by extracting or pressing the coriander seeds.

The great properties of coriander oil
  • The oil is colourless with a slight yellow tinge.
  • It smells fresh of lemons and limes but also spicy-peppery.
  • It tastes spicy, warm, nutty and has orange-like notes.
The use of coriander oil has many benefits!

Coriander oil has a high tocopherol content and can therefore be used as a good source of antioxidants. The oil is of excellent quality and is suitable as a natural antioxidant for use in lipid-containing foods.

The valuable oil also contributes to technology!

The cleavage product contained in petroselinic acid, adipic acid, is mainly used as follows:

  • In the production of nylon
  • As an acidifying agent E355 for foodstuffs
  • As a substitute for tartaric acid in baking powder and in soft drinks
  • For PVC plasticizers
  • As a component for synthetic lubricants
  • Coriander seed oil can therefore be considered a natural and environmentally friendly source for these products.
  • Petroselinic acid is also used in cosmetic products, soaps and emulsifiers.
Coriander oil is not only delicious but also healthy!

In some parts of Africa and Latin America, coriander seed oil is used to season vegetables, sauces and confectionery, for example.

Among other things, the oil has anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and soothing properties. It can help to promote digestion, clear the skin and reduce stress.
