I'm considering buying some walnut oil because it is a diamond on my SWAMI and I have once tasted it on my salad... boy, was it good! There are different types out there--toasted, cold-pressed, organic, non-GMO... Does it matter so much if I choose the non-organic for walnut oil? What about toasted vs. plain?

Also, does anyone know the smoking point for this type of oil? I have heard that people use it for sautee and baking. Just wondering if it is safe.

I am not sure what the smoking point is although it is generally used only with cold dishes. Apparently when it is heated it loses flavour, nutritional value and takes on a bitter taste.

You might be limited as to what you will be able to purchase as it is a little expensive and not too commonly used. Organic would be best if you can get it.

My bottle of walnut oil says, "Suitable for medium-high heat:  Perfect for sauteing, baking, dipping, dessings/sauces, or drizzling on a finished dish".  I never use it for heated things like baking or sauteing, but it's so good.  Personally  I get roasted walnut oil because the flavor is so much better.  I bought unroasted once and couldn't even eat it   I gave it to my mom.

Thanks for your replies!

Brinyskysail, what is the brand of your toasted walnut oil?

It's La Tourangelle - the tastiest brand I've found so far.

Oh, thanks a lot! I read some reviews on this brand vs. another one, Moulin de Marie (French import). Someone said some batches of La Tourangelle taste bitter whereas the Moulin brand gives a consistently mild taste. Have you ever run into the bitter batches? I have a hard time choosing coz these are sold in packs of 3 tins and I have to ship them overseas... need to make the wisest choice for my bucks

I've never had a problem with La Tourangelle.  It's the best brand of walnut, almond, and sesame oils I've ever had.  I've never had Moulin de Marie, though, so I can't compare.

Thank you again, brinyskysail. Glad to hear that esp because La Tourangelle is cheaper
