Virgin Olive Oil
This is merely a technical term of any olive oil that is produced purely from mechanical or other physical methods, under thermal conditions that do not cause any alteration of the oil. There are different grades of “virgin” olive oil that are further explained.
- Extra Virgin Olive Oil is virgin olive oil of perfect aroma and flavor with a free acidity below 8%. Note: many of these oils are “commercial” extra virgin olive oils, blended to a standard maintained year to year, and to a price. They may come from different regions and countries. Other “single-estate” oils are often un-blended, more expensive, and very pronounced in flavor. Just like grapes from wine making, the flavor of these olives can change from year to year and field to field depending on soil, humidity, moisture, and other natural factors.
