This is the world's most expensive edible oil… Price 22500/Litre… Know how it is made?

Nowadays the price of oil has created a stir everywhere. 
From cooking oil to petrol falling in your car, everything is expensive. But if we tell you about one such oil among all which is the most expensive in the world. Argan oil is the most special type of oil in the world and hence it is the most expensive. What is even more interesting is that till 20 years ago no one knew Argan oil and hence it was the cheapest one. Then what happened in two decades that it became the most expensive oil.

$ 3 to $ 300 per liter now

At present, the cost of one liter of argan oil is $ 300, that is, if you compare it in Indian rupees, then you will get it around Rs 22,000 per liter. Till 20 years ago no one knew about it. It was prepared in a small village in Morocco and sold on the side of the road. Then its price was just 3 dollars per liter. But since then many women's organizations came to know about it and today Argan oil has turned into a billion dollar industry. This oil is prepared by the women of Amazigh, a tribe of Morocco. The method of making this oil is still dependent on traditional methods.

What is the use of argan oil

Argan oil is used for cooking beauty products and traditional Moroccan dishes. This oil is prepared from the seeds of a fruit called Argan. This fruit grows only in places like Morocco, the Atlantic coast and the desert located in the Atlas hills. The people of the Amazigh community living in North Africa collect this fruit which has fallen from the tree. These people have been using Argan oil for the last several centuries and there has been no change in the method of preparing it.

how oil is made

The fruit is first collected to make oil. When these fruits are ripe, they fall on their own and then it is collected. Raw argan is very green in color and Amazigh never plucks it directly from the tree. They wait for the fruit to ripen and then fall to the ground. Ripe argan is brown in colour. After collecting it is dried in the sun.

When it dries, then its hardened peel is removed. After this, its seed is touched. Fruit plucking is considered a very difficult process. According to Amazigh, who prepared it, not everyone can even break it. There is a special technique to break it, which only a few people come to know. One liter of argan oil requires 40 kg of argan fruit and 20 kg of seeds.

This oil is also called red gold

After removing the seed, it is ground by putting it in an old machine like a mill. This process sometimes takes up to two hours. However, now it is also being done with the help of machines. The oil is extracted from the seeds in a very short time in the machine. Argan oil is the best quality oil and because of its price, it is also known as Red Gold. It takes a lot of time to prepare it.

Gets the lowest salary

It takes at least 24 hours to prepare one liter of argan oil. Now many cooperative communities have started getting help in making this oil. The salary of women who prepare argan oil is less than $ 220. This is the lowest salary in Morocco that people engaged in this industry get. Today many leading cosmetic companies have started using Argan oil.
