Pure Extra Virgin Olive Oil Imports By CyberCucina

Shop For Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Extra virgin olive oil from the Mediterranean is graded as extra virgin based on evaluation of the oil on four factors. The first is that it must be made from the mechanical extraction of olive. That is to say, after the olives have been picked and washed they are crushed to extract their pulp and juices.

The second factor is that they be cold pressed. This refers to the method in which they are crushed. They must be crushed with the traditional stone mill or with a discontinuous hydraulic press. There can be no added heat or chemicals either of which could alter the oil.

The third factor needed to qualify for the extra virgin olive oil label is that the acidity level be less than 1%.

And the fourth factor is, in essence, a taste test by expertly trained professionals who must verify that there are no gustatory or olfactory defects.
