  Pine Nuts
About 20 species of pine produce seeds large enough to be worth harvesting; in other pines the seeds are also edible, but are too small to be of value as a human food.
Unshelled pine nuts have a long shelf life if kept dry and refrigerated (at -5 to +2°C), but the shell must be removed before the nut is eaten; shelled nuts (and unshelled nuts in warm conditions) deteriorate rapidly, becoming rancid within a few weeks, or even days in warm humid conditions.
Pine nuts are commercially available in shelled form, but due to poor storage, these rarely have a good flavour, all too often already being rancid before they are purchased.

In comparison, other pine nut oils are usually pressed from the Italian pignolia pine nuts, which are not nearly as potent and are often harvested from trees growing in plantations.
Our pine nut oil is extra virgin (100% cold pressed from freshly shelled raw pine nuts), whereas most pine nut oils on the market are either not cold pressed or even pressed from roasted (!) pine nuts, which significantly decreases the oil value.
In contrast, all other pine nut oils are pressed using steel presses, which immediately degrades them (contact with steel oxidizes some of the pine nut oil's most important ingredients such as vitamins, and is known to remove the 'life force' from the oil).

Siberian pine is an inherent part of the rich Russian tradition and heritage.
Considering that, as confirmed by modern research, the oil made from its seeds is a proven healing remedy for peptic ulcers, a natural digestive and metabolic aid and a powerhouse of beneficial antioxidant vitamins and nutrients, we in the 21st century know for a fact that this reputation is well-deserved.
