The main characteristics of an Extra Virgin olive oil classification are:
- The olive oil is produced from pressing cultivated olives
- The oil is “cold pressed”, meaning that no heating was introduced to the pressing process
- The cold pressed olive oil is measured to have an acidity level of less than 0.8%(meeting the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s grade of U.S. Grade A, or U.S. Fancy)
- The olive oil has a superior flavor
Extra Virgin Olive Oil is typically used for salad dressing and other fresh food presentations where the full flavor of this healthy ingredient can be enjoyed.
Organic olive oil comes from olives grown and farmed without the use of any pesticides. The organic olive oil class is becoming increasingly popular because it gives the olive oil consumer the strongest guarantee of a natural, un-tampered olive oil.
