Almond oil, extracted from almond kernels, can be used as a substitute for olive oil. It can also be used in frying and baking recipes due to its high smoke point and fresh, neutral taste. It has a similar oleic acid (omega-9, mononusaturated) content as olive oil and is fairly heat resistant and stable. Almond oil is a rich source of vitamin E and is beneficial in many ways, including digestion. Almonds are rich in essential minerals such as magnesium and calcium.
