How is Extra Virgin Olive Oil produced?
It is all about the treatment of the olive. If it is harvested at the right time and quickly first cold pressed, the oil will be fresh and unspoilt – extra virgin. Our olive press is on the farm (unlike most) which ensures our olives remain unscathed.
If the olive is not treated properly the olive oil has to be refined (like most vegetable and peanut oils). If the olive oil is labelled ‘pure’, ‘ordinary’, ‘light’ or ‘pomace’, these lack all the health benefits of extra virgin olive oil.
Why is Extra Virgin Olive Oil good for you?
Because it is a monounsaturated fat, it is good for your immune system and assists in lowering your blood pressure. EVOO is fruit juice squeezed from an olive with no additives or preservatives.
Why buy Australian Extra Virgin Olive Oil with the Australian Extra Virgin Certified Symbol?
So you can be sure you are getting what you think you are getting. In Australia, we have strict processing guidelines and Extra Virgin classifications to abide by. Look out for this symbol on bottles as a measure of quality. More information can be found at the Code of Practice website.
