Texas Pecan Oil

Texas Pecan Oil

Soil and weather conditions in many parts of Texas are perfect for pecan trees, both wild and farmed varieties. Pecan nuts are the primary food product of pecan trees and are a staple of Southern cooking and baking.  Rather unknown, even to those who bake with pecans, is pecan oil. It is extracted from the kernels of the pecan nut and produces a rich, golden cooking oil with a slightly sweet, slightly buttery flavor.

With a high smoke point (470 degrees), it is a versatile cooking oil and butter substitute.

In comparison to Extra Virgin Olive oil, Pecan oil contains higher amounts of polyphenols, yet half the amount of saturated fats.

Pecan oil contains trace amounts of vitamins (A, B1, B2, C, D, E, F, G, K) and minerals such as calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, sodium, iron, copper, zinc, manganese, and selenium. It is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which are essential for good health.


Texas Pecan Oil for Cooking and Baking

We recommend genuine Texas pecan oil for use in baked goods, sauteed foods, salad dressings, grilling marinades and more. Experiment in your kitchen with any recipe that requires oil or butter. This may soon become your favorite go-to cooking oil.
