Our know-how

 

Maison Orphée products are only made with the highest quality fruit and seeds. We won’t compromise on this quality. And we won’t compromise on the quality of our production either. In the tradition of authentic master oil makers, all of our oils result of the patient work of slow pressing, the only way to extract the best from oil seeds.

At Maison Orphée, our knowledge begins with a careful selection of raw materials. We value quality in our products and in this sense we perform several tests on GMOs, yeasts and molds. In addition, the cleanliness of our equipment, training of our teams and temperature controls right pressure contribute to our quality workmanship. In a tradition of authentic master oil makers, all of our oils are the result of pressure at very low speed and temperature.

Our oils are made from a particular know-how which is the first cold pressing. It's a process in which the oil seeds, not preheated, are pressed just once, without adding heat and at the lowest possible temperature, in order to extract part of the oil they contain (this temperature may vary depending on oil content and hardness of the seed to be pressed). La Maison Orphée combines art and craft mills and new production techniques.

La Maison Orphée has over 20 years of expertise in the first cold pressing. In addition, we have been working 28 years in collaboration with Huilerie Philippe Vigean which is a traditional French oil mill operating since 1930. We visit them on a regular basis  in order to exchange information and expertise.

La Maison Orphée preferred relationships with nutritionists, scientists, chefs, chemists and biologists in order to improve our knowledge and offer products that meet high quality standards.
