Pecan oil

Organic Pecan oil

Pecans bring to mind holidays, especially with the popularity of pecan pies known for their crunchy texture and buttery flavor.

These power nuts are rich in protein, essential oils, fatty acids, and trace minerals, offering a range of health benefits. Whether consumed raw or activated, pecan halves provide advantages like improving heart health, digestion, and immunity. Similarly, pecan oil, a more concentrated form of this nutritious fruit, offers numerous benefits. With a mild odor and neutral taste, pecan oil can enhance various recipes without altering their flavor profile. Known for its heart-healthy properties, this oil is ideal for cooking or dressing salads.

Certified organic pure pecan oil from the Kootingal Pecan Company is a cold-pressed oil extracted from organic pecans grown using regenerative agricultural practices. Reflecting a commitment to land management and organic farming, this light, pale yellow oil boasts a mild, neutral flavor that adapts to the seasonings and spices used alongside it.


Pecan oil is a rich source of saponins, flavonoids, protein, fats, and carbohydrates that offer health benefits. With only 9.5% saturated fatty acids, pecan oil stands out as one of the healthiest cooking oils available, boasting lower saturated fat content compared to other oils like olive oil, peanut oil, or corn oil. These unsaturated fats are known as the “good” fats, playing a crucial role in maintaining healthy HDL cholesterol levels while lowering LDL cholesterol without compromising the beneficial cholesterol levels. Organic pecan oil, with its high monounsaturated fat content dominated by oleic acid (52.0%), along with linoleic acid (36.6%) and small portions of palmitic, stearic, and linolenic acids, is widely recognized for its heart-healthy properties. The favorable balance of fatty acids in pecan oil can potentially reduce LDL cholesterol levels, ultimately mitigating the risk of heart disease.

Primarily used for cooking due to its impressive smoke point of 240 degrees Celsius, organic pecan oil surpasses even extra virgin olive oil in heat tolerance. This high smoke point makes it perfect for high-temperature cooking methods like deep frying. Additionally, its subtle nutty flavor enhances dishes, making it a popular choice for salad dressings and dips. Lighter in consistency than olive oil, pecan oil is a versatile option for everyday cooking, free from preservatives or additives. It serves as an excellent substitute for butter and other oils such as coconut or avocado oil, making it a suitable option for baking. To extend its shelf life and prevent rancidity, refrigerating pecan oil after opening is recommended.

As one of our best-selling products, organic pecan oil is offered in various sizes ranging from 175ml glass bottles to 3-liter tins. While this specialty oil may not always be readily available in local grocery stores, customers can conveniently purchase it from our online store for added convenience and accessibility.


All our pecan oil is meticulously crafted on our farm in small, artisanal batches. To minimize food miles, we carefully process our organic pecans right on the farm. After air-drying in our open-air barn, the pecans are cracked, shelled, and a portion of the premium golden yellow pecan halves and pieces are reserved for pecan oil production each season.

We employ a mechanical extraction method that avoids heat, preserving the purity of the oil. Reputable growers such as Kootingal Pecan prioritize mechanical extraction to maintain the natural nutty flavor and essential nutrients, delivering the highest quality product to our consumers.
